One of my friends suggested making a Pingu character hat for my mother to wear in her classroom during story time. :) I thought he was mighty cute so I created this hat for her class. It’s a beginner friendly pattern so give it a whirl. Happy crafting!
Black yarn for beanie main color and eye pupils
(I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will do)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Orange yarn for beak and hat trim
White yarn for eye whites
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends
Small amount of fiberfill stuffing for Pingu’s beak
Adjustments for all ages in pattern
Worked in the round
Requires small hook or yarn tapestry needle to attach features to hat during assembly
