Pablo the penguin braves the chilly antarctic weather in his little bobble hat. You don’t use any tricky colour-work to knit your penguin, you just need to be able to change colour at the end of a row (knit stripes).

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work simple increases and decreases, knit stripes (change colours at the ends of a row) and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The penguin is approximately 15cm tall (in the hat).
