Sinterklaas, Piet and Ozosnel finger puppets


It is almost time for Saint Nicholas or as he is called in the Netherlands Sinterklaas. Upcopming Saturday, the 13th of November, he will arrive in the Netherlands with his Pieten and Ozosnel. These finger puppets are a great gift in case you would like to crochet a small gift for in the shoe. The pattern is easy to follow with all the pictures of the pattern. But take into account there are lot of small crocheted details in the pattern that can be tricky for a beginnner. The pattern is only available in Dutch and can be bought in my etsyshop.

For a long time I had these wobbly eyes in my storage and I was still searching for a fun project to use them. With these new finger puppets I had to try them out and they give a new cuteness level to the fingerpuppets.
