Why do we call it "The Glorified Sock Puppet Pattern"? Because essentially that is exactly what it is - a sock (with arms). The Glorified Sock Puppet Pattern will take you back to the basics of puppet building and enable you to make a simple hand puppet that fits like a ... sock! But don't let the simplicity fool you. Though relatively easy to construct, a basic sock puppet can provide quite a challenge in puppeteering. It has the ability to capture a tremendous range of emotion and can be a real challenge for any puppeteer's skills. In fact, you will often find that puppeteering a basic sock puppet takes relatively more skill and more practice.
