Father Rabbit Finger Puppet

Having sent off the St. Patrick's Day box it is time to begin my Easter projects. I decided to begin with the Bunny Finger Family pattern that you can purchase here.

This was was my first chance to try out my Tulip Etimo Rose Steel Crochet Hook-Size 4/1.25mm and I was pleased both with the the hook fits in my hand and with how it holds the thread. I've used both the Rose and Red Etimo thread hooks now and I'm working to fill in my missing hooks with the Etimo and Armor brands. So far the Etimo are my favorite of the two. I still love my Bates Bamboo best but as they've discontinued their thread hooks; I'm working with what I can find online, buying when I find deals, coupons, sales, etc.

The designer used size 20 cotton thread for her puppets. I find 10 to be challenging when working in the round. That being said when I looked at my stash I had Coats Crochet Thread Size 3, White on hand and no size 10. So Father Rabbit is made with Size 3. This worked out for me as the pants and shirt are made with scraps left over from 2 doll thread dresses I made. The blue is completely used up and I made a significant dent in the yellow. I love gettting rid of scraps.

I did pick up some Coats White Crochet Crochet, Thread Size 10 to try making the other puppets but if I end up making them all in size 3 I'm good with that too. I think Father Rabbit is adorable and it would allow me to finish off the yellow I have left on one of the other bunny outfits.
