The penguin is one of the cutest winter animals there is and I’ll tell you what – they are even cuter when they are knitted or crocheted. I was recently at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, IL and they brought out three little penguins and had them march along from one keeper to the next. I fell in love with the way they walked so proudly and wobbly. Then I remembered, “Hey, we have crochet penguin patterns!” So today I’ve rounded up the best free crochet patterns for penguins (and a couple knit patterns too). These little guys make great stocking-stuffers and presents for little ones.
You can have your pick of the most adorable penguins around! From colorful penguins to penguin ornaments and hats, these free patterns will have you hooking until Christmas. Animal hats are super popular for kids too and these patterns are sure to put a smile on a child’s face this winter. Crochet some of these patterns with your extra yarn after making that afghan and donate some hats to charity this winter. I have a feeling that the cold weather is just beginning and that there is more chilly days ahead. Penguins will make winter more bearable this year for sure.
