You should know how to knit in rounds and be familiar with increases/decreases. You have to graft (kitchener stitch) and make an I-cord. A tutorial (with plenty pictures) on both are included in the pattern instructions.
The ice bear hand puppet is designed to fit a childs hand, but it also fits smaller adult hands. The ice bear puppet is part of my "a puppet a week"-project.

22 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches in stockinette
Gauge is not THAT important for this handpuppet. I recommend using yarn of the gauge above or thicker. If you use thinner yarn, the puppet might get to small.
Sizing / Finished Measurements:
6inch x 4inch
20g white yarn
1 yard black yarn
2 yards light pink
1 set of dpns size 3,5/4mm; US 4-6 depending on your gauge
