This is a pattern for basic mittens, knitted in the round, which can be made in three sizes from the same instructions by varying the weight of the yarn used: 4 ply for small, DK for medium and Aran for large. The penguins are knitted separately and then sewn on to the back of the finished mittens. They could also be used to decorate other knitted stuff - bags or scarves perhaps.
All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease.
