Little knit penguin

I love love love knitting toys.  It all started with the amazing Susan B. Anderson... check out her amazing blog here.  http://www.spudandchloe.com/blog/  Today's pattern is written by another amazing toy designer... http://www.woollysomething.com/  Marie Mayhew.  

I just loved the pattern for this fuzzy little penguin.  Alas, my pattern didn't felt correctly (I didn't use 100% wool yarn for the head) but I thought it turned out awfully cute anyways.

I can't explain it... but I really love knitting miniature hats.

I love how the expression comes alive as you add little details.

Someone very special is getting this for Christmas...
After New Year's I will be featuring lots of toy patterns.  My needles are busy finishing up lots of gifts this month.

  1. Jenni, That is the cutest penguin ever. I just love its face and the hat is so real, I would want one in adult size. I actually love anything miniature anyway. Great job, can't wait to see more. Thanks for sharing and have a great day! What's penny's name? Penny? xoRobin❤

  2. Jenni, your little penguin turned out so cute! The little rosey cheeks are adorable. Great idea! Thanks for sharing with me.

  3. So cute, Jenni! I love that heathered grey yarn. What kind is it? I can tell from your chair he turned out kind of big but I bet that makes him even more cuddly. Bring him to knitting so we can see him in person!
