pattern details

This uses less than 100 yards of grey yarn. You can use yarn scraps for all other colors.

I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in the following shades:

  • Granite Grey
  • Mandarin Orange
  • Pure Black
  • Buttercup Yellow
  • Dolphin Blue

The body, wings, and feet are joined with a slip stitch after each round.
The wings and beak are worked as an oval. The beak is worked in continuous rounds.

I used some roving wool to create the face of each puffin. You can always sew or glue on a piece of off-white felt if you don’t have a felting needle.
