Pug Finger Puppet

PDF version
Eve loves Pugs.


So I made her a little finger puppet.


It's knitted in the round. Very quick to make - here's how I made it.

With beige DK yarn and 3.25 DPNs, cast on 12 sts.

Work 16 rounds without shaping.

17th round - k2tog to end (6 sts)
Break off yarn, leaving a long end. Thread this through the 6 remaining stitches and pull up tight. Fasten off.

For the ears I used dark brown DK yarn and 3.25 straight needles.

Cast on 2 sts.
Knit 1 row.
Purl 1 row.
k2 tog.
Fasten off.
Attach these to the side of the head - catching the ends down to form the curled ears.

For the face, use dark brown to embroider the snout with satin stitch and then sew on two small black beads for the eyes.

The tail is made by using beige DK yarn to form a small twisted cord.

Quite simple - and very cute.
