Additional Information

Description
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
  • 1 skein Caron International’s One Pound Yarn, Sky Blue
  • Crochet hook size G-6
  • Stitch marker
  • Two 18mm safety eyes or buttons
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Yarn scraps: pink for nose, brown for mouth
  • Yarn needle
  • Small nylon bag of beans or poly-pellets, optional

DIRECTIONS:
Work tightly so stuffing won’t show through stitches. Work in continuous rnds; do not join & do not turn at the ends of rnds. Place stitch marker at beginning of rnds. Move marker as each rnd is worked. Stuff body, head, arms & legs as work progresses. Do not stuff ears or tail. When fastening off leave 12"-18" tail for sewing. Option: Weight the bottom with a small nylon bag of beans or poly-pellets. Place bag at the bottom of the body before stuffing with fiberfill.
