Monkey Finger Puppet


I made this for a mom. She had a son in the hospital, saw one like it and asked if I could make a similar toy. This is what I came up with. I wrote the pattern for it in case someone would want one for themselves.

Monkey Finger Puppet
Body:
CO 18st in Brown and join in the Round on 3 DPNs
K 14 rows
(K4, K2tog) 3 times (15st)
K 1 Row
(K3, K2tog) 3 times (12st)
K 1 Row
(K2, K2tog) 3 times (9st)
(K1, K2tog) 3 times (6st)
Cut Yarn, stitch through remaining 6 stitches, and pull tight. Tie off and weave in ends.

Arms (2 needed):
Make I-cord with Brown (using the 3 stitches method) 8 Rows long.
Embroider with Light Brown “palms” on one end of each of the Arms.

Ears (2 needed):
Make I-cord with Light Brown (using the 3 stitches method) 7 Rows long.

Face:
CO 7st in Light Brown
Knit 4 rows
BO by K2TBL place stitch back on the left needle and K2TBL. Repeat.
This will leave a ridge for the brow above the eyes.

Nose:
CO 18st in Light Brown and join in the Round on 3 DPNs
K 9 Rows
Cut Yarn, stitch through 18 stitches, and pull tight. Tie off and weave in ends.
Using the Starting Yarn Pick Up the CO rows and pulltight. Tie off and weave in ends.

Tail:
Make I-cord with Brown (using the 3 stitches method) 8 Rows long.

To Make up:
Stitch the Face in place then stitch the Nose in place on the bottom row of the face. Take each end of the I-cord for the Ears and stitch them in place on both sides of the head forming loops. Stitch the Arms in place and the tail. Embroider the nose holes and eyes with a long strand of Black. Do the same for the mouth using a long strand of Pink.

This is fantastic! What gauge yarn and what size needles did you use? I've been requested by a child in my life to knit a monkey finger puppet and I'd love to do this one.
