Materials & Tools
• Yarn in the weight and color of your choice. For my samples, I used approximately 23 grams of the MC and 10 grams of the CC of Lucky Dog Yarn Co. Bus (Worsted weight yarn). Your yardage will vary based on yarn weight and needle size.
• Needles for working in the round (DPNs, 2 circulars, or 1 long circular for Magic Loop). Needle size will vary depending on the yarn you use (see Gauge).
• An additional needle, same size as above, to use when working a three-needle decrease or a 3-needle bind-off.
• Tapestry needle
• A pair of 12mm safety eyes. An excellent selection is available from seller 6060 on Etsy and 6060eyes.com.
• Polyfil
• Scrap yarn or spare needles for holding live stitches
• Small piece of wool felt for eyes

Gauge
You want to produce a dense fabric so the polyfil does not poke through. Use a needle that is at least 1 or 2 sizes smaller than the smallest needle size recommended on the yarn label.
