So we got a glimpse of Porgs in the latest Star Wars featurette.

Although admittedly I’m not a massive Star Wars fan but I am still somewhat of a nerd and like sci-fi/fantasy stuffs. I have watched 90% of all the Star Wars movies and, recently, the Last Jedi, featuring a woman Jedi and an old Luke Skywalker. How exciting! I’m looking forward to the next movie and I saw the new cute creature called the Porgs.


We don’t know too much from the Porgs yet but the name is already a winner in my opinion. Porgs Porgs Porgs Porgs. In the two seconds that we see these creatures in the featurette, we see the Porgs looking like a cross between penguins and some rodent, and bearing the trademark of all things cute, those huge round eyes.

As with all the things that I find cute, I’m going to try immortalising it an Amigurumi.

First of all, the sketch aka fan art.

Eyes – Make Two

Attach black pupils to white. You can also sew some white on the eyes to make it look shiny.

Lips

The lips are shaped like a moustache, how cute!

  1. Chain 13 in cream white
  2. Turn and 1sc x 12 from the 2nd chain. Leave a long tail for attaching to the head.

Attach to face in a moustache fashion.

Stuff and finish up the body.

Body – closing up

  1. [1dec, 1sc x 5] x 4, 1dec, 1sc x 2
  2. 1sc x 2, [1dec, 1sc x 4] x 4, 1dec, 1sc x 2
  3. 1sc, [1dec, 1sc x 3] x 4, 1dec
  4. 1sc x 2, [1dec, 1sc x 2] x 4, 1dec
  5. 1sc, [1dec, 1sc] x 3, 1dec

Feet – make two

  1. Magic ring 6sc in orange color
  2. 1sc x 6
  3. (2sc, 1sc) x 3
  4. 1sc x 9
  5. 1sc x 9

Now leave a long tail and flatten the opening and stitch the together. When you are finished, thread from where you ended all the way through to the middle of the magic ring. Basically you will be attaching the feet to the body from this end.

Finally your Porg is ready for Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
