I startet crafting around the time my hands managed to use large sticks without stabbing them into my eyes.

I'm a mom of two, a wife to my one and a fan of many crafts.

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • increase, decreases

The snail hand puppet is designed to fit a childs hand, but it also fits smaller adult hands.
The snail puppet is part of my "a puppet a week"-project.

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.

  • 10g brown yarn

You Will Also Need:

  • 1 set of dpns size 3,5/4mm; US 4-6 depending on your gauge
