Materials & tools

-Yarn in the weight and color of your choice. For the worsted-weight sample, I used approximately 50 grams of Dancing Dog Dye Works Waltz Worsted (see Sample Info, pg 4). Your yardage will vary based on yarn weight and needle size.
-Needles for working in the round (2 circulars, or 1 long circular for Magic Loop—you could use DPNs, but I don’t recommend them for this pattern). Needle size will vary depending on the yarn you use (see Gauge in pattern).
-An additional needle, same size as above, to use when working a three-needle decrease (tutorial included in pattern)
-Tapestry needle
-Two safety eyes
-Spare needles or waste yarn to hold live stitches
-12” piece of scrap yarn for eyelids & mouth
