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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round basic embroidery GAUGE 8 stitches is 2" in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Fits a 1-2-year-old (~19" head size), finished hat is ~15" unstretched, stretches to ~21"
