Knitty.com Cool Patterns (Issue 30)

Mr. Popper's Penguin
by Laura Nelkin


Mr. Popper's Penguin was the result of combining a favorite book with the need for a cover for a red hot water bottle.  The result is snuggly, wooly, whimsical, and warm.
SIZE:  One Size, to fit standard hot water bottle approx 8 inches wide x 13 inches high.  (Approx 15.5 inches tall x 17 inches around at widest point. Since piece is felted, final size can be adjusted during the felting process.)
