Meet Pierre the Penguin
Maybe it’s because there’s just something about penguins. Maybe it’s because this penguin somehow embodies all that is woobly. But if you find yourself irresistibly drawn to this waddliest of Weebles, you’re not alone. In fact, he’s the most popular pal on the block.
He and his buddies have come to life in the hands of thousands of complete beginners. And with the help of our tried-and-true instructions, he’ll soon be sliding his way straight into yours as well!
Never fear, our step-by-step tutorial is here! Using easy-to-follow videos, it’ll teach you the basics, starting from how to hold yarn. Then it'll guide you through each step of the pattern — from making the beak, to adding the wings, and even fixing mistakes. And if you ever find yourself unraveling or tangled up in knots, just send us an SOS at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Having never crocheted before I took a chance and ordered the penguin, the fox AND the hippo (intermediate) all at once. The penguin and fox come with very easy to follow step by step instructions. Amy questions and the Woobles team will reply promptly with suggestions. The hippo was a little more of a challenge, but still completely manageable. This is definitely the beginning of a new life long hobby!
The kit came with everything I needed. The online tutorials were AMAZING. Step-by-step instructions made it easy to end up with a critter to be proud of. He's so CUTE! I am ordering my next kit right now.
As a super newbie beginner, I was surprised at how fun and easy it was to learn basic crochet with this kit. The step-by-step videos are super helpful. I messed up a few times at the start, but the videos about fixing errors got me back on track. I'm looking forward to trying more patterns and doing additional crochet projects.
This kit was great for a beginner. It was my first time crocheting and the pattern and tutorials were fantastic.
This was my first crochet kit. The pattern was simple and the tutorials were easy to follow.
My penguin doesn't look much like the example, but it's still cute nonetheless. The pattern with the step-by-step videos kept me going. Sure there are mistakes in my guy, but they make it more special.
It was my first time crocheting and I'm surprised at how fun and easy it was to follow the directions. Penguin came out cute and will purchase another kit soon. Directions are clear and videos are extremely helpful and clear to follow along with.
I learned so much and am happy with the result! I wish there was more instruction on embroidering eyes because I have a toddler so didn't use the safety eyes. But otherwise found the instructions to be great and I now feel I can make more things!
