Pattern Description:

This pattern is of a cute penguin. My friend who loves penguins asked me to knit a penguin hat for his niece. As written, it will fit a toddler. I used a "double-knitting" technique with the white face of the penguin to ensure that the hat maintained its stretch. I have documented this clearly with words and pictures in the patterns, but if you have any questions or need any clarification, feel free to contact me.


8 stitches is 2" in stockinette stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size 8 16" and double pointed needles (or size for gauge)
  • Worsted weight yarn in black, white, scarf/mini hat color, and orange - less than one skein of each
  • Yarn needle
