Penguin Can Cover / Wrist Warmer










Penguin Can Cover / Wrist Warmer


This pattern assumes some knowledge of stranded and intarsia knitting.
The penguin is knit flat and seamed up the back later, with tail knit on after seaming. The wings and beak are knit up with the pattern by turning your work.
I used stranded knitting with the center ( white and yellow ), and intarsia with the black areas ( so I used two bobbins of black instead of carrying the black behind the white yarn. )
Size 6 US needles
29 yards worsted weight black cotton yarn
4 yards worsted weight white cotton yarn
2 yards worsted weight yellow cotton yarn
1 yards worsted weight blue cotton yarn
