Woolly Penguins

We are in love with Marie Mayhew's felting patterns. We've had so much fun making these Woolly Penguins and Snowmen! 
Get creative with accessories, here my mom made little ear muffs and a scarf with pom poms!

The Woolly Snowman pattern includes the corn-cob pipe, nose and instructions to make a top hat. We added a little smoke too!

We made our little penguin chicks using a skein of  Cascade 220 in gray, doubled with a skein of  Fresco in cream for the body and a skein of Cascade 220 in black for the head, tail and feet.  

Both patterns are knit in the round on big needles.  I knit my penguin in one evening and it took about a day to dry after felted.   

These would make great gifts!

Come in and check out some of her other felting patterns.  The gnomes are especially adorable.
