Christmas Penguin Crochet Pattern

Happy Saturday everyone! Today I’m continuing my streak of posting Christmas patterns with this Christmas Penguin Crochet Pattern! This penguin is just so cute. If you don’t want it to be Christmas-themed and you just want a regular penguin, just leave out the Santa hat and/or the scarf. Likewise, the Santa hat that I’ve included would also look cute on some other stuffed animals like my Crochet Porg as well.
