I like to think that when I make a knitted animal I make it realistic. I don’t go for a cute version. So in this case all I can only say that baby penguins really are this cute. Actually I think they may be even cuter.

This is my third polar Christmas decoration. The others were Polar Bear and Arctic Hare. I am really pleased with these little animals on my Christmas tree.

Baby Penguin is really quick and easy to make. Just for once I am going to recommend a wool. I used Rowan Alpaca Classic Shade 00101 to get the fluffy grey look. I think any other fluffy wool would work. Some of my first penguins were in a non-fluffy grey, and they are cute too.

These baby penguins are tiny - approximate 4.5 cm tall, and each one take less that 2g of wool. So this is the pattern for you if you like quick makes, and I am planning to make a lot more from my ball of wool, and those ones will be heading for my Etsy shop. But it is not for you if you don’t like working small.

I have set up a discount code on ravelry if you buy any 2 of my polar animal decorations: Christmas Baby Penguin, Christmas Arctic Hare, or Christmas Polar Bear you will get £1 discount. If you buy all three the discount is £2. The code to use is POLAR, and this offer will run until the end of 2020.
