Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Skills used: Basic knit stitch, increases, decreases, knitting in the round, basic embroidery skills.

Note: Since it is knitted in the round, there’s no messy seaming, special for somebody who don’t love to sew.
Materials:

  1. 8 ply weight wool or acrylic. (I have used Moda Vera Marvel 8ply 100% acrylic for MC and used about one ball.) Yarn in red for MC, beige for CC1.
  2. 3.25mm /US-3, 100cm/40” circular needles for magic loop and DPNs or size needed to obtain gauge.
  3. Buttons / plastic safety eyes/ scrap yarn for eyes
  4. Stitch marker
  5. Polyester stuffing
  6. Yarn needle
  7. Embroidery needles
  8. red threads

If you use thicker yarn and bigger size of needles you get a bigger toy.
