He's so cute!! Knit and felt a whimsical penguin chick for that winter enthusiast! The pattern gives directions for a penguin and its winter outdoor gear. Adding a strand of fine alpaca yarn to the body and wings creates a two-tone, fuzzy chick. The penguin measures, after felting and without its hat on, about 8-inches tall from head to toe.
Penguin Body and Wings are knitted (very loosely) carrying together 2 skeins of non-superwash yarn: a gray worsted weight 100% wool and (245 yards) a cream fingering weight yarn in 100% alpaca (218 yards)
Head, Beak, Tail and Feet: 245 yards of black non-superwash worsted weight yarn.
Note: It is important to use the same brand of worsted weight yarns throughout the pattern, regardless of color, since brands felt differently and mixing brands could affect the penguin's overall shape.
