Yarn Notes: The Cuddle Toys pictured were knit with Cotton Chenille from Crystal Palace Yarns on a size 4 needle. You can use any yarn you choose (the softer the better) with a needle 2 or 3 sizes smaller than is recommended for that yarn, so the knitting is firm. The toys may be larger or smaller depending upon your choice, but the bodies will remain in proportion. It is not necesary to match the gauge if you use a different weight of yarn.
Gauge: 20 sts., 28 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch
