"The very first amigurumi toy I made was a penguin. With this easy beginner pattern, perhaps the very first amigurumi you make will be a penguin too! If you use aran-weight yarn and a 4.0mm hook, the penguin will come out to 3.5 in (8.9 cm) tall. But you can use any hook and yarn size you want – the penguin will just grow smaller or larger with you. It's written in US terminology and crocheted in the round."
