Insert tapered end of scarf into the puppet opening about 2”; pin scarf to the upper part of the puppet only, (in the “wrist” area if this were a mitten). Sew the top layer of puppet securely with matching yarn to the tapered scarf ends, being careful not to sew the opening closed.

Are both ends of the scarf tapered exactly the same? I keep getting stuck because when I come to the end of my scarf my tapered ends are different. The first tapered end is a lot more tapered than the end on the other one :(. Please help.. thank you.

I like the patternbut would loke it to be clear specially on hiw to make the ears. On the instruction it did not ask you to turn after you make the 5 sc or any other rn. Could you please email me the exact direction. Do you have to turn or close into ring and continue.

This scarf would have to be made exactly to fit a certain child because if you make it too small chances are they will stretch their neck thin when they stretch out their arms. And you know how kids won't stay still, you need to have expansion room. Other than that, I love it! I just wish I knew how to measure it for different size children? Any suggestions? email- iprincessirene@aol.com

This would be OK for a little boy if I use Browns and blues wouldn't it? If so, up to what age? I'd hate to go to all of that work then someone teases him and he would never use again. :) Thanks for your time. Noxvilnana
