Penguin Parade

When we were at Yarndale earlier in the year I was lucky enough to meet Anna Maltz and see several of the samples from her Penguin book.

The book has now been published – and it’s utterly gorgeous. One of these books where you want to cast on all of the things at once.

The book is a mixture of garments and accessories.

I’ve already cast on the Aptenodytes cardigan in charcoal Britsock, and I love how it’s working up.


I’m having to stop myself from also casting on a Humbolt sweater.


There’s an amazing way of using colour in this sweater, and I have several possible colourways in mind for this.


Everyone needs penguin mittens – these are Fledgling


My final ‘must knit now’ is something I’d have said wouldn’t interest me at all.

Then I saw Penglewin.

There’s Penglewin au naturel.


And Pengelwin all dressed up.


It’s really obvious from the photos how much fun this book is. What they don’t tell you is that the book also houses lovely photos and illustrations – and even a story. So great as it is to have a pdf book this is one where I’m glad I have a paper copy. You get both – buy the book from Anna and your copy will also have a download code so your patterns are safely stored in your Ravelry library.

Buy your book now – you’ll be glad you did.

    Love the Humbolt Sweater, such a cute boxy design. Would look great in soft pinks or blues 🙂
