  • Hi! How can I get the free Baby Penguin crochet pattern? It is just too cute for words!! Penguins are my Granddaughters favorite animal and I would love to knit her some. Thank you!

    • Hi Kathleen 🙂 You can use online versions of the patterns for free on our website and mobile app. PDF version itself is not free. Because it takes a lot of time to prepare the patterns. So, in spite of this fact all people who can’t pay for PDF patterns can view them on the website and make wonderful toys. We don’t hide the instructions. Hope for your understanding 🙂

  • Thank you for making this available for free! These are adorable and larger than I imagined from my first view. That's a good thing because my grands love them!

  • I just made one of these for my penguin-obsessed sister. There are some small changes I had to make to get the penguin to more closely match the picture. Otherwise, the pattern was fairly easy to follow, and I know my sister will adore this little penguin. Thank you for providing this pattern for free!

  • I love these , they are so cute 🐧🐧,also a very easy patten to follow .Thank you for all you fantastic pattens ❤

  • I finished this pattern last night and I am so happy with the result. I've named my little baby penguin Percy and I am absolutely in love! He turned out much bigger than I was expecting haha. The pattern was well written and easy to follow.
    I would like to try making a larger one in the future using chunkier yarn and a bigger hook. For now though I think I will try making little Percy some other clothes! :)
    Thank you for your amazing work!

  • I love the free patterns but there is no print button & it won't copy & paste. I was hoping to make all kinds of the animals (if not too hard) then donate them for TOYS FOR TOTS at Christmas & some to children in the hospital.
