HEAD:
Row 20 - 24: Sc in 2nd sc from hook and in each across including into the VERY last st at the end (It almost doesn't look like a stitch). No ch 1 either, just turn  (11 scs)
Rows 24 -27: Sc in 2nd sc from hook and in each across BUT NOT into the VERY last st at the end. No ch 1 either, just turn.  After Row 24 you should have 8 scs.
End off leaving 15" tail for sewing seam.

Make a 2nd puppet piece the same.  Sew the 2 pieces together around, leaving bottom open for hand.

Face:
To make the nose, use a contrasting color and chain 4, join with a sl st to form a circle.  Make 9 dc into circle.  Join with a sl st, and end off, cutting a 6" yarn tail to sew the nose onto the face. Sew onto face.
Using contrasting color for eyes and a yarn needle, sew a face with eyes and a mouth, any way you wish.  Add hair if you like.


Alternate ideas:  Start with one color for the body, up to the neck, then change to a skin color for head.

You could crochet long ears and make a puppy or bunny.
EARS:  Ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each one across.  Do this for 6 rows.  You can end off for dog, or do 6 more rows for bunny.
