The toy is 20 cm (7.8”) tall
- 1 skein (75 g) of Seansheep “Byronbay” (or any other kind of fluffy bulky yarn)
- Ecru medium acrylic yarn (100 g/200 m) (you can also use white, beige, or pink)
- Dark brown acrylic yarn (100 g/200 m)
For the eyes: white yarn (cotton is ok), blue, and black acrylic yarn (100 g/240 m)
2.5mm, 3.5mm, and 4mm hooks; stuffing
Any bulky textured yarn looks better on the wrong side, so we will be turning all the fluffy details inside out.
Always mark the beginning of the row with a contrast thread or a special marker. That’s because it’s usually very hard to find the beginning with a yarn like this.
