Crochet Penguin (Advent Cal 2019)

Hello everyone!

I will ignore the fact that a year has past since my last post (my poor neglected blog) and I will go straight to the point.

A couple of months ago Iwanna, a very talented woman known as @iwannabehara, organised a Crochet Advent Calendar for Christmas, a crochet-along event on Instagram.

For this #adventcal2019 a group of 20 crocheters joined forces to create 24 new free patterns, one for each day of December, until Christmas.

So it’s the 23 of December and is my day to present my pattern, a crochet penguin to make as a last minute gift or Christmas decoration.

At the end of this post you will find links for the other patterns of the #adventcal2019.
