Crochet Penguin Hooded Scarf

My daughter loves to wear all of the crochet accessories that I create for her. Her latest request was for a crochet penguin hooded scarf. Luckily I had all the materials that I needed on hand so I was able to get right to work.

This pattern is made similar to my Dinosaur hooded scarf, or my Fox hooded scarf. This is a very easy crochet project.

For this project I used Big Twist Value yarn in black, white, and orange. I also used a 6mm crochet hook.
