There is something very endearing about Puffins, especially baby Puffins, or Pufflings as they are known. This knitted Puffin is worked in separate sections, either flat, in the round or by picking up stitches. The separate sections (body, head, feet/legs, wings, patches and beak) are all sewn together afterwards.

Beak has colour work, but can be knitted in one colour.

All instructions (including the colour work section) are written, with a supplementary chart for the beak if preferred.
