I couldn't resist turning the little owl pattern into a penguin hat. I tilted and elongated the beak, and slightly altered the face shape.
The hats are easy to sew up, and don't take much time at all. I left all of my raw edges unfinished....laziness mostly, but you really don't have to worry about knit fraying much.
If you're expecting a baby, or simply can't resist sewing up cute little things, then I highly recommend trying out this project. I used scraps from my knit pile, but you could certainly cup up a soft old t-shirt or two to whip these up.
