This puppet is easy and fun because the basic design can be changed to create any animal you choose. If you want a wash mitt crochet in cotton, using a 4mm hook. If you just want to make puppets any yarn will work with any hook size. I made the ears by simply chaining 12, hdc the first row then turned and crocheted the 12 chains down the opposite side. I edged in black again using a hdc stitch.
