This green yearn is from my stash, and I lost the tag to it. So unfortunately I can’t tell you exactly what I used. But I do know that it’s a Medium-4 weight and is superwash wool. You can substitute any Medium-4 weight yarn and use any fiber — wool, acrylic, bamboo, cotton, etc. Whatever you think “The Child” will like best. Brava Worsted Yarn from Knit Picks in Fig or Avocado is a great option.

The ears are, well, quite large. They will most certainly flop down. To help keep them firm I inserted some EVA foam before seaming them up. This is totally optional, but does help. If you don’t have any EVA foam, you could cut out some cardboard from a shipping or cereal box, or try stuffing them with scrap yarn. The benefit of using EVA foam or cardboard is that you can mold the shape a little to give the ears some depth.
