  • Worsted weight yarn in Beige, such as Red Heart Super Saver in Cornmeal – 1 skein
  • Worsted weight yarn in Gold such as Red Heart Super Saver in Gold- 2 skeins
  • Worsted weight yarn in Coral, such as Red Heart Super Saver in Coral – 1 skein
  • Worsted weight yarn in Yellow or Red for mustard or ketchup, such as Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Scarlet – 1 ball (less than a whole ball, but I didn’t count the yardage)
  • H8/5.00mm hook
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle
  • stitch markers or small piece of scrap yarn
  • polyester stuffing – at least one 2-lb bag, maybe two
  • optional: straight pins

Special Stitches

invdec – invisible (single crochet) decrease – insert hook in front loop of next stitch, then insert hook into front loop of following stitch, YO and pull through 1st 2 loops, YO and pull through remaining 2 loops.

invhdcdec – invisible half double crochet decrease – I have no idea what the abbreviation for this actually is, so just go with it for now . If this is driving you crazy, just substitute an hdc2tog – YO, insert hook in front loop of next stitch, then insert hook into front loop of following stitch, YO, and pull through 1st 2 loops, YO and pull through remaining 3 loops.

Gauge

Exact gauge is not super important here. If your toy turns out slightly larger or smaller than mine, it’s no big deal.

Notes

RS of your work should show on the outside of the project, unless noted.
