George the Hairy Monster Finger Puppet


Isn't he a cutie?? You all should know by now that I have a thing for finger puppets. I was experimenting with different yarns and came up with this little monster. The first way I tried it ended up being turned into a kitty toy. Smokey and Sami were happy about that but it just wasn't what I was trying for. So I kept trying. I've named this guy George just because I thought it looked like a George I used to know. He's really easy to make so even the beginner crocheter can do it.
.
You need:
Small amount Sport weight yarn
Small amount fun fur (or eyelash) yarn
J Hook
2 googly eyes
.
Holding both yarns together
Ch 4 and join to form loop
Row 1; 8 sc into loop, sl st to first sc
Row 2; ch 1, sc in each sc and join
Repeat row two until you have 10-12 rows or until George is as big as you want
After you finish the last round ch about 7 to form tail
.
Glue googly eyes on and George is finished!
Now if you have some pink fun fur you can make Georgette
.
Of course if you want you can stuff it and sew it closed and make a kitty toy. Just don't put the goggly eyes on it.

Very cute!! I'm assuming you're using both strands of yarn together? (It didn't specify in the pattern... unless I missed it. Ha ha!) Such a cutie tho!

Oh I love him. Very funny with his googly eyes. I have been admiring your finger puppets for some time but have not actually managed to make one yet (being able to read patterns would probably help a lot! LOL) I enjoy your blog very much BTW!

I'm on Crochetlist and I came over to see yoour finger puppet. He is so cute. I wish I could make little things but the eyes and fingers have changed over the years. So, I will enjoy yours. Thank you, keep up the excellent work.
