Obama and McCain Puppets
Created By: Diane LeMire

I made these with worsted weight yarn so they turned out a little bigger then I think they were suppose to. I ended up using 3 sc for the ears instead of 6 because the ears looked too big. I made the Obama one first and decide it was easier when changing colors from the head to the shirt, to sc in the back loop only for the 1st row of the shirt so that later you can sc through the remaining loop for the collar. I also decided to make McCains arms jut out in front because it looked more like him. And I can't for the life of me make a french knot so I just glued on half bead circles. I stuffed the heads too.
