hand puppet knitting patterns

How big are the hand puppets?

The hand puppet series is a collection of wild and domestic animals. Each puppet is designed to fit a child’s hand. Adults with smaller hands can use the puppets, too. If you want the hand puppet to be bigger, use a thicker yarn to scale the size easily.

Most puppets are worked in a dk-weight yarn and measure 15x10cm/6x4inch. In the photograph on the right you can see the fox puppet in action for size comparison to a 7 year old.
