A Fish for a Penguin

image1Here they are. My tiny penguins. I enjoyed making them, especially the tiniest one.

Both are made using the same pattern but different threads and hooks.  I used size 8 cotton thread/0.75mm hook to make the ‘big’ penguin and an ordinary sewing thread/0.4mm hook to make the ‘little’ one.

Fish: in grey, work in rounds, close each round with a slip stitch
