25 rnd: 25 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, 2 tr, 2 dc, 2 hdc, 25 sc

Beak

Crochet with the orange yarn.
1 rnd: 6 sc in mc
2 rnd: 6 inc (12)
3 rnd: (3 sc, inc)*3 (15)
4 rnd: (3 sc, dec)*3 (12)
Cut the yarn, leaving a long end enough for sewing. Stuff the detail.

Muzzle

Make the tightening for the eyes. To do this mark the points 1 and 3 between the 15 and 16 rows and the points 2 and 4 between the 17 and 18 rows in the immediate vicinity of the eyes (if you use eyes with stalks).
Now insert a needle in the head, fasten off a thread and take it out in the point 1, then insert in the head in the point 2 and take out in the point 3, tighten a thread. Again insert a needle in the head in the point 4 and take it out in the point 1, tighten a thread.
Repeat this action 2-3 times, fasten off, cut a thread and hide inside the head.
Those who will glue the eyes need to mark the points at the same level (the points 1 and 3 between the 15 and 16 rows and the points 2 and 4 between the 17 and 18 rows), the space between them is 8 sc. Do the tightening as described above. The next step is gluing the eyes with the help of a glue gun.
Try on the beak to the head with the help of the pins and sew it between 17th and 22nd row of the head as it is shown at the photo.
Then embroider the whites of the eyes with white thread, the eye-lashes, brows and smile with black thread and cheeks with the red thread.
Place the detail №1 inside of the detail №2 so that the protrusion is on top in the center of the head and sew.
Try on the head to the body and start to sew it. In the course of sewing stuff the neck very tight, so as the head does not dangle because of its heaviness.

Cap

Start with the white yarn
1 rnd: 6 sc in mc.
2 rnd: 6 inc (12)
3 rnd: (3 sc, inc)*3 (15)
4-5 rnd: 15 sc
6 rnd: (3 sc, dec)*3 (12)
7 rnd: 6 dec (6)

8-12 rnd: 6 sc
13 rnd: (1 sc, inc)*3 (9)
14 rnd: 9 sc
15 rnd: 1 sc, inc, (2 sc, inc)*2, 1 sc (12)
16 rnd: 12 sc
17 rnd: (3 sc, inc)*3 (15)
18 rnd: 15 sc
19 rnd: 2 sc, inc, (4 sc, inc)*2, 2 sc (18)
20 rnd: 18 sc
21 rnd for the fr lp: 1 sc, inc, (2 sc, inc)*5, 1 sc (24)
Change the yarn to the white Softy. Don’t cut the red thread , leaving a long end enough for sewing.
22 rnd: 24 sc
Cut the yarn, fasten off, hide the end of the thread. Sew the cap to the head as it is shown at the photo.
It’s left to knit the scarf. To do this cast on 6 stitches with the mustard yarn and knit stockinette stitch to the desired length (I have a scarf length of 38 cm).
Tie the scarf to the penguin and admire our handsome!
