Hopkins the Penguin
Hopkins the Penguin is learning to swim today, so he has a little lifesaver to keep him safe in the water.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the penguin and lifesaver, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, sew seams, and change colour at the end of a row. The pattern incorporates intarsia colour-work to make the penguin, and short rows to make the lifesaver (instructions on short rows are also included)
