Puppet Patterns
The Puppets in the new format are now available as individual puppets as well as a set of 3. divider

These puppets are fun to make and even more fun to play with afterwards!  They are based on a traditional sock style puppet so that your fingers go in the "nose" and your thumb goes in the "chin".

They have evolved a bit over the years, going from separate bits that are joined together at you work to using colour changing for a better effect and more comfortable fit.  I have started re-writing the older patterns in the way the newer ones are designed as I think they look better.  In the meantime, the original style patterns are still available and still work just as well as they ever did.

They are made to fit my hand (medium lady size) so that adults can play with them as well.  You can make them a little bigger or smaller by changing hook size and/or yarn.

Each pattern contains 3 designs, some of which are now also available separately.  All of these puppets require a little experience to complete, however, they come with explicit instructions and plenty of pictures which make the patterns look a lot more complicated than they actually are.  They are mostly made with UK-dc (US-sc).

I use DK yarn so that you don't have to worry about them getting dirty because you can just put them in the washing machine.   It also comes in a variety of cheerful colours.

Materials: DK yarn in a variety of colours to suit.
Equipment: 4.00mm hook, stitch markers, needle for sewing in ends.
Finished Size: About 18cm/7ins tall and 10cm/4ins when flat and not including any "bits".
Tension: Not important as long as they fit your hand when you have finished but, for those who like to be precise
16 dc (US-sc) and 21 rows to a 10cm square.
