Amigurumi Penguin Reviewed by Kathy on 2014-03-09 *****
I have a LOT of patterns for these adorable little critters and I love all of them! So do other folks, and I can't keep up with requests for them! The patterns are easy enough, with only an occasional stumper or two you can work through. They go quickly and are handy to have for a last minute gift. Enjoy! Kathy Miller. at kaneedle@gmail.com.
