Washcloth Puppets #2
For Tiger, Pig, Fish and Octopus
Easy knit designs! Body pattern is given in 2 styles: garter and stockinette. When used as a washcloth, puppet is worn with face on the back of the hand so buttons don’t rub. For young children, sew felt circles in place of the button eyes. Rinse with clean water after using. Squeeze out water and allow them to dry completely. Discard puppet if it becomes worn or has loose parts. This product is intended to be used with adult supervision. Contains small parts and may not be suitable for unattended young children. Be sure all embellishments are securely attached before use.
Note: octopus requires about 80 yards,
As made, the mitts fit most children, the elastic cotton blends allow the mitts to stretch to fit most adults. For fixation and Espirt, double the strands and work on size 8 needles. Also can be made with Butterfly Cotton, cast on 4 additional stitches on size 6 needles.
