Meet Howie the (sometimes holiday) Penguin
Looking for a great pattern to begin crocheting amigurumi? This cutie is for you!
You can make the basic Howie… or if you’re feeling festive, follow the instructions for adding an adorable hat!
This little cutie is ready to bring some cheer into your life! He’s round, he’s a little bit waddle-y, and definitely hug-able! You can even make him without a hat, for all-year-’round hugs.
Howie measures 7.5″ tall when crocheted with a worsted weight yarn.
Black, white, blue, red and yellow Ella Rae Classic (220 yards/skein) used in sample, less than one skein of each color required.
