and thumb looms used were In the
Attic mitten and thumb looms--they have since gone out of business. Their mitten loom had 16 pegs 3/4" apart,
and the thumb loom had 12 pegs 1/2" apart.
Mitten pictured is a BEAR, but you could make
almost ANYthing with the basic pattern, by making different ears, or no
ears so it is a human, or well, let your imagination take you away
about 1 oz of brown or your color choice Red Heart 4 ply WW Yarn
Basic Body of PUPPET (6
3/4" before adding ears and about 8" if you add ears)
Using 2 strands of brown yarn together, E-Wrap around the loom 4.
Now knit 3 (6 strands) wrap over 1 (2 strands) wrap - this forms a
chunky braid row.
E-Wrap again (you will just have 2 rows on the loom now) and knit 6
rows, up to the thumb.
THUMB and FINGER Holes
After you have knitted off the 6th row, carefully remove the wraps from
pegs 1 and 2. Thread a 4" piece of matching yarn through those 2 sts,
and tie in a knot. This leaves a 'hole' for the thumb. Do
this on the opposite pegs numbers 10 and 11, so you can make a 2nd
TOP OF HAND/PALM
E-Wrap pegs 1 and 2 twice and e-wrap the other pegs once. Knit
Continue to e-wrap and knit 1 over 1, for 10 rows from thumb hole to
method to remove.
THUMB and FINGER
Using the little thumb loom, and 1 strand of yarn e-wrap 3 times around
the loom, as you will be using double stitch here. (Lift one strand
over 2 on loom).
Knit 12 rows total in this manner (1 over 1)
Remove with gathering method.
PUTTING TOGETHER PUPPET
Flip the mitten hand inside out.
Place the thumb in the hole provided with right sides touching each
other, and whip stitch the thumb onto the hand part of the
mitten. Finish off, and do this for the other finger, then flip
mitten right side out again.
