MATERIALS AND TOOLS
✓ Main yarn for the main parts – I used “Lotus Travka Stretch” by Kamteks (70% acrylic, 28% polyamide, 2% lycra) that has approximately 80 m in a 50 g skein): approximately 50 g of grey, 50 g of red, 25 g of black, 25 g of white.
Tip: You can use any moderately fluffy yarn (wool, acrylic, etc). The thicker the yarn, the bigger your toy will be. See the gauge section. If you need exactly the same yarn visit this shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/LittleOwlsHutRUSSIAN
✓ Additional yarn for the socks and boots – I used “Soufflé” by Moscow Yarn Company (100% acrylic, 292 m/100g) in red, white, beige and blue colors (you can choose any colors you like). See the gauge section to check if you chose the correct yarn weight.
✓ Matching crochet hooks. I used 3 mm crochet hook for all yarns.
✓ Strong thread of matching colors for needle sculpting.
✓ Transparent glue.
✓ Stuffing.
✓ A pair of ready-made eyes – I used 16 mm half beads.
✓ Black polymer clay and varnish to make the beak or a ready-made beak.
✓ Brush or Velcro to brush up the toy.
✓ Scissors.
✓ Any material for tinting (optional) – oil pastels, oil paints, pencils, etc.
✓ Transparent glue.
✓ Single core copper PVC electrical wire – I used wire approximately 240 cm/94.5 inches long 2-2.5 mm in diameter.
✓ Fabric tape approximately 1 cm wide to work up the wire ends (optional).
✓ Brush or Velcro to brush up the toy.
✓ A piece of white felt for the whites of the eyes.

For hat and scarf (optional)
✓ Main yarn – any yarn. I used “Soufflé” by Moscow Yarn Company (100% acrylic, 292 m/100g) in white color for the hat (you can choose any colors you like). There are no strict measurements for the swatches for the accessories. Try the hat and the scarf on as you go to adjust the number of rows and the amount of sts.
✓ Knitting needles – I used 4 mm for the hat and 2 mm for the scarf.
