Materials needed

  • Yarn: any yarn you would like to use. Keep in mind that size can vary with different yarn. Yarn that I have used: YarnArt Jeans Plus in green and white color
  • Small strands of dark yarn for embroidering mouth and eyes
  • Pink yarn for cheeks
  • Stuffing
  • Hook: 3,5mm
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle
  • Stitch markers
  • Optional: safety eyes

Final measurements

The soft toy is around 10cm x 10cm from the top and 6cm tall. The size may depend on the used yarn.

Few words before starting

The pattern is written in American terminology. Crochet in a spiral. For legs, crochet in rows. It is advised to use stitch markers to keep track of your rounds. Crochet through both loops of the stitch unless told otherwise. It would be best if you crochet tightly to avoid holes to be showing while stuffing. Have fun!
