10g x Moya DK 100% cotton – Blush (CC)
200g plastic pellets (100g per Boobie)
40-60g pure wool filing or unicurl
Stitch marker
3.5mm hook (depending on your tension – if you work loose, go down a hook size)
Needle for sewing in ends

You are welcome to make the Boobies in any yarn however depending on the yarn and tension the size of the finished item may vary from ours. I do however recommend that 100% cotton is used, as it is natural, washes well and is perfect for breast prosthetics.
Also, note that the pellets in my Boobies have been put in loose, but if you are worried about them falling out (which they should not – unless you work very loosely), so you can always pop them in a stocking, and then put into the Boobie.

My pattern uses US terminology

Use your stitch marker as often as you can, to help with stitch counting
And lastly, COUNT your stitches 
