For a non-felted penguin Wool of the Andes Sport Weight (held double) in Coal, White, Semolina, and choice of color for hat. These yarns are available from Knit Picks. A small amount of polyfil stuffing is also needed.
Difficulty: Intermediate; requires knitting in the round, increases, decreases, short rows, and knitting with multiple strands at a time.
Finished measurements: A felted penguin made with WOTA worsted weight yarn and Merino Style DK yarn will be about 4 inches tall. A non-felted penguin knit with a double strand of WOTA sport weight yarn will be about 5 inches tall.
The pattern includes step-by-step photos and instructions on how to felt and add details with embroidery, needle-felting, or gluing on googly eyes and pom poms.
