  • For the Main Yarn: 4 skeins of Blue Sky’s Bulky, 50% Alpaca and 50% Wool. I used the color Polar Bear. NOTE: If you’re not very careful with your gauge and conservative with your tails, you may need 5 skeins - it’s close! (Looking for another option? Try 2 skeins of Cascade’s Magnum.)
  • For the Contrast Yarns: 3 skeins of Blue Sky’s Bulky. These colors are Silver Mink, Frost and Gray Wolf. (Want to save a little? Just one skein would be enough!)
  • A set of US #15 double pointed needles.
  • A 20 inch, US #15 circular needle.
  • A jumbo stitch marker (optional).
  • 2 bags of stuffing.

2 1/2 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette


  • From Ground to Top of Ear: 17 inches
  • Circumference: 38 inches
