A Note About Knitting Looms

These instructions were originally written for the Blue Knifty Knitter loom, which has since been discontinued. You may still be able to find a used one online, but if you can’t, try looking for a loom that is meant for bulky yarn, and has between 22 and 26 pegs. Just be aware that your finished puppet size may vary, if you use a substitute loom.

A Note About Resources

This pattern was written some time ago, and as such, the resources section contains broken links. Here are some updated resources for you.
