Haven't you always wanted your very own "Kiteman" finger puppet at the end of your fingertip, ready to do your every whim?. He also doubles as a decoration for the end of your pencil? Take him back to school - amaze your friends.
Well now you are in luck, (with some encouragement from Caitlin's Dad and knitting efforts from Stinkymum), this treasured artifact can be yours. One problem - you have to know how to knit!
Step 1: Gentlemen Take Your Needles!
Take number 3 mm knitting needles and some yarn in the following colours
white - for the body
pink - for the head
black for tufts of hair and embroidered features
a small amount of green for dapper bow tie
With your 3mm knitting needles and white yarn (I am using Vanna's Choice by Lion Brand, as I love this yarn) cast on 14 stitches.
Garter stitch two rows
Using stockinette stitch and starting with a knitted row, knit 16 rows ending with a purl row
(you will also need a nice sharp darning needle with a big eye!)
