The Playful Penguin Blanket Applique Pattern is a cute crochet little critter that can be added to just about any crochet project. This free crochet pattern is an excerpt from the Playful Penguin Blanket by Alessandra Hayden (I love her designs). This blanket and with the cute penguin applique will be a crowd favorite baby shower gift.

Along with the video for the Playful Penguin Blanket Pattern, I did a separate video for the Playful Penguin Blanket Applique Pattern. While I was filming the applique video I realized how confusing the instructions could be for a beginner. It’s not that the instructions are bad, far from it. But with the number of repeats needed to complete an oval and the number of repeats needed in each round, a person can get lost.
So, I broke down the standard pattern written instructions and made a long format version. Each stitch is represented in this long format version. Instead of finding a “repeat from…”, I wrote out the full repeat so the crocheter doesn’t have to count how many repeats he/she has completed. This is something I will often do for my own patterns and for classes I teach. It is something you can do too for other patterns that you find difficult to follow.
With this long format version of the Playful Penguin Blanket Applique Pattern and the video tutorial I think you will find success making this penguin crochet applique.
