A Parade of Penguins

If four can be called a parade of penguins. This is from Jane Eborall's pattern page. I saw the one that Sally of Tat's Heaven tatted for her challenge/giveaway. I loved it and this pattern is amazing. I wish I could tat a replica of Tsuru in black and white threads. This is tatted in Milford Mercer size 40.
If you noticed that the first small penguin has an enlarged head. Well, blame it on the person who scrolled to the adult head and happily tatted away until she realised her mistake. So the lower photo has the correct sideways baby penguin in the correct head size.


  1. Those are super-cute! I love the way the baby on the right has his head tilted up.

  2. I love penguins! Even the big-headed ones. :-)

  3. Very cute. I'll bet you could do design for Tsuru, now that you have understood the structure of a penguin. Are cats all that different? Really? Round is round, after all!
    Fox : )

  4. Your tatting mistakes as you say are as beautiful as the ones that are not. VBG Your work is always awesome. Hug Judy

  5. My sister has some clever patterns, it is just finding time to actually tat them! Love your penguins, pleased I inspired you!

  6. Such cuties.. and all dressed up to go!

  7. ..saw this and thought of you! ***giggles***

  8. What cute penguins! They remind me of Pingu.

  9. Fox,
    I couldn't design a Tsuru. It just does not come naturally.

    Thank you all for the comments. I always love hearing from you.

    Jane's patterns are awesome. Thank you Sally for the inspiration and pointing me to it.

    I hate it when I make a mistake in the pattern but sometimes you just have to let it go and make the best of it.

    That sure is a hyperactive cute little penguin. Thank you. It defnitely made me laugh.

    I had to look up Pingu. Cute.
