It’s been so hot lately. I sought refuge in my air conditioned workspace and created some cute penguins!

I used some needle felting techniques to perfect my penguins. You can always just forego these steps if that’s not your thing.

This pattern uses some intermediate techniques like tapestry crochet. If you’re a beginner, try watching my video tutorial before giving the pattern a go.
