My son was doing a school unit on penguins, featuring Pinquo by Colin Theile. So I made this little guy. I found the pattern on Ravelry, but it is originally from Lion Brand Yarn.

I made him in navy and white because the Little Penguin (aka Fairy Penguin if you don’t keep up with change) is actually blue and white, not black and white as we normally think of penguins. My kids thought he was cute and used him as a throw toy, which is why those little threads are now hanging off his beak. He’s now going to take a journey in the mail to visit my son’s teacher. He’s going in a little box with ‘What’s In The Box?’ on the lid, and penguin facts on each side.
