Kevin is a colourful little penguin, quick to knit and with no tricky colourwork, so he is a super project for new knitters.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the penguin plus photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.

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 (as in knitting stripes).


  • A pair of straight 4mm knitting needles (US 6)
  • Double knitting yarns (DK or light worsted weight) in yellow, bright blue and pale blue
  • Buttons and white felt for eyes
  • Toy filling
