Very easy and quick project - fun to make to entertain little kids.


  • YARN: Any worsted or aran weight yarn. If you like wool, Cascade 220 is a nice and economical choice. If you prefer acrylic, Red Heart works just fine. Very small quantities are needed - use up your leftover yarn! Exactly amount needed depends on how large the puppet is, but it generally takes around 20 to 40 yards (18 to 36 metres).
  • HOOK: Use a 4 mm (G) or 5 mm (H) hook.
  • yarn needle
  • scissors
  • 1 stitch marker
  • optional: buttons for eyes
