Free Amigurumi Penguin Pattern

I also made this little penguin for my friend Darlene. It is the simplest pattern available on my site thus-far. She decided to name him Olie the Penguin, so Olie is approximately 4 1/2 inches tall.

    1. Honestly, none come to mind… I know I watched a few in order to learn myself, but I don’t really remember. I’d recommend just searching for videos on youtube until you find one that suits you. Were you looking to learn how to create your own patterns?
