Pasha the Penguin
I found another penguin pattern. This is Pasha the Penguin and the pattern is available free on line from a website called Knitty. He didn't take long to make and I enjoyed knitting him.
I didn't like the way the short row deceasing came out. It made the little fellow a bit lumpy and left holes (which I sewed up).
When I knitted the seond one (yellow trim) I knitted him on smaller needles (3mm) and it's better. This time the white stuffing did not show through the black knitted parts. I also did not use blanket stitch to sew him up, as I found it untidy, and showed the black stitches on the white. I used neat straight stitches instead. Also instead of leaving a small hole in one of the sides to stuff through, I stuffed him through a small hole in the base, where it doesn't show at all.
