this is ideal project for leftover yarn from other projects. Preferably the yarn should be soft to touch and not scratchy.
Also you will need little remnants of white, black and red yarn for eyes and lips.
The pattern contains the option for knitting in the round or knitting flat.
It is very easy project.
If using cotton yarn this little lovie could be used as a washcloth.
Or if you make a whole lot of them, you can sew them together to make a blanket.
