The turtle hand puppet is designed to fit a childs hand, but it also fits smaller adult hands.
The rhino puppet is part of my "a puppet a week"-project: http://pumora.de/?cat=18

23sts x 30rows= 4x4 inches
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.
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.
I startet my "a puppet a week"-project in 2012. Every week I create a new handpuppet around a monthly theme. Some puppets are available as patterns already.
