This is an easy, beginner-friendly pattern that requires minimal sewing. Although it calls for chenille chunky yarn and a 5 mm crochet hook, you can, alternatively, use any other yarn and a matching hook (the dimensions and texture of the finished item will vary accordingly).

The pattern is written using American terminology and requires basic crochet skills such as:

  • working in the round
  • single crochet and double crochet
  • changing colours as you go
  • increase and decrease
  • working in the back loops / front loops only
  • attaching yarn to existing stitches

You will need:

  • James C. Brett Flutterby Chunky yarn in light and dark brown and dress colour for the girl / overalls colour for the boy.
  • DK black yarn for embroidering the face features (nostrils, mouth and eyebrows)
  • 5 mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Toy stuffing
  • Stitch marker
  • 12 mm safety eyes
