Crochet Finger Puppets

  • Use a size 1 or B crochet hook and baby fingering yarn.
  • CH 13 stitches
  • Row 1: SC in the second chain from hook and in each chain across (12 SC); CH 1 and turn.
  • Row 2-11: SC in each stitch across going through both loops of each SC.
  • Finished piece measures about 1 5/8” wide x 1½” long.
  • Fasten off leaving a tail of about 5”
  • While piece is flat, embroider eyes, nose, and mouth with embroidery floss or use liquid paint.
  • Use the tail to weave the back closed and gather the top, which is the last row of SC.
  • 1/8” ribbon makes a cute bow for the top of girl puppets; for boy puppets, try changing the yarn color after six rows to look like a hat.
  • Alternately, you could use a small pom pom or thread for hair.
  • Good face colors would be white, pink, peach, or brown.
