I don't have this type of braid to make the penguin, I'll try to substitute with regular black yarn and see how it turns out. I think it would look cute with a satiny black yarn, too. The instructions look simple and the design is fun and cute! I should be able to whip it up in an hour.

I think I should be able to save it in my projects folder.

The instructions were easy to follow any one who knows just a little crochet could do it. I made it in about ah hour and I haven't done any crochet in a year or more. Thank you for the pattern.
