Crocheted Penguin

Click For Crochet Abbreviations List

Miniatures are so delightful, and this diminutive crocheted
stocking ornament is fun to do. The metallic green and red
braid captures the shimmer of the season and makes an easy
crochet thread. We've also included here a little candy cane
that can be crocheted for a lapel pin or tree ornament. It's quick
and easy too, perfect for gifts.
