Penguin handpuppet knitting pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to knit in rounds and be familiar with increases/decreases.
  • A tutorial on intarsia knitted in the round is included in the instructions (with pictures).

Pattern Description:

The penguin hand puppet is designed to fit a childs hand, but it also fits smaller adult hands.
The penguin is part of my "a puppet a week"-project.

For non-commercial use only.
This pattern is also available in german. Contact me if you want the german version instead of the english one.

This is a pattern, no finished puppet.
