Pablo is a cute little abstract penguin!
This listing is for the knitting patterns if you would like to knit your own little penguin toy. The penguin is knitted in two bands of colour, so you only need to know how to change colours at the end of one row (i.e., knit 2 broad stripes of colour).
The patterns include instructions and photos to help you, it is written row by row so it is easier for beginners to follow, with step by step instructions for making the finished toy. You will need to be able to do the following stitches/techniques: knit, purl, casting on and off, sewing seams, increases and decreases (a list of abbreviations and instructions is also included).
All pieces are knitted flat on straight 4mm needles, and the toy uses less than 40g each of black, white and orange double knit yarn (or light worsted weight yarn). You also need some felt fabric for the face, toy filling, and the eyes are small black beads.
The finished penguin is 12cm tall.
