Hi there! It’s been a crazy, crazy, crazy six months or so, with two vending dates tossed in the middle of it, at a teacher friend’s school and at Keen Halloween. Holiday orders, after holiday “buying the stuff I didn’t get for the holiday” orders, getting my autistic son settled in at his new Amazon warehouse job, a new day job for me — crazy!
At my table at Phoenix Comicon this year, I’ll be featuring printed patterns as well as finished items to buy. I won’t have too many complicated expensive items, but I will have a photo album with examples of all my custom work in case people are interested in something for the future.
You don’t have to wait, though – here’s the pattern for my adorable little Splatoon-inspired squid finger puppets! The instructions are rather short, so I also included instructions for some ninja finger puppets, which are very simple, but having a pattern saves you from the trial & error of figuring it out yourself!
I’ve been neglecting you, sorry!
I’ll post the holiday presents I made as soon as I find my camera again.
In the meantime, here’s a quick project I made for a friend. He saw this picture of ninja finger puppets on Deviant Art, and it looked easy, so I got to it! Of course, I ended up ripping it out & starting over far more times than I thought I would, just like every other project ever, lol.
I wrote down the pattern in case other people wanted them – and I know you do, so here it is!
I used Red Heart Super Saver, which is a worsted weight (4 – medium on the standard yarn weight chart), and a size F (3.75 mm) hook.
Instructions are in US terms.
Start w/magic circle, chain 2, 9 dc (double crochet) in circle. Join w/a slip st into 2nd beginning chain.
Next round: Ch 2, dc in ea of next 7 dc, ch 2, join w/a sl st into 2nd beg ch.
Next round: Ch 2, Dc in ea of next 7 dc, 2 dc in ch 2 space, join w/ sl st in 2nd beg ch, finish off.
Go forth now and attack, my minions!
