3.0 out of 5 stars Double Pointed Needles Needed 30 Dec 2008
By Barbara Rhoades TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I am beginning to knit again after many years away from it. I thought I would try my hand at finger puppets for my grandchildren. Boy was I wrong. These puppets are too tiny for my beginning status. I was thinking they would be something simple but they have several color changes and are worked in the "round" with double pointed needles.

This would be a good book for a very advanced knitter. If you have made socks or done any other work in the "round" with double pointed needles, then you will have a grasp of what is needed to create these cute puppets.

The directions are not overly complicated to read IF you know the abbreviations and how to work each type of stitch. Do you know what ssk means? It is a left slant: slip, slip, knit. Even reading the directions, I didn't get how to do this stitch. There is a section on "how-to" but most of it goes over my head. The patterns are also skill rated but even the ones marked as easy are still worked in the round, rather than worked flat and sewn together.

There are over 30 different puppets to knit and they would make great gifts for children. These are especially nice when a child needs to be entertained quietly and without electrical power! Just make sure your skills match the difficulty level.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 21 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed with this book. Firstly it requires you to knit with four needles which is not easy and it does not make this obvious when looking at it and also there is a lot of crochet work in it which again was not obvious.

I haven't knitted on 4 needles for years, but this book is quite inspiring - once you've mastered the basic puppet, imagination can run wild!

unfortunately I don't like in-the-round knitting and I have tried knitting them flat but then its basically a whole new pattern making the up.
