BABY TUX BLANKET

The blanket was made in DK yarn and measures approximately 81 cm x 104 cm (32” x 44”). It can be made in any yarn though this might change the overall size. The instructions are very easy to follow, using a method of charting that we have devised ourselves.

Tux is the official mascot of Linux. Linux is the common name for the free operating system used on some computers. The name Linux was derived from the name of its creator Linus Torvalds.


It is said that, Torvalds wanted a penguin logo after seeing a picture which was very similar to Nick Park's penguins in Creature Comforts. There were competitions to design a logo for Linux. Tux did not win any of

them but still went on to be the image most closely associated with Linux. He is referred to as their mascot not their logo. Tux was created by Larry Ewing, in 1996, using the first version of GIMP, which is a free graphics

package.

In 2003 Nicolas Rougier created Baby Tux.. It was originally for his own use as an animation saying 'you've got mail'. His drawings may also be freely copied and modified.


Our Baby Tux illusion is based on this picture:
