 A yarn with no stretch is best for amigurumi, I ordinarily use cotton or cotton blend.
 Amigurumi is usually stitched in the round (unless it says otherwise).
 For this pattern, the following yarns were used:
o YELLOW = Lincraft Cotton Yarn 8ply in Yellow
o BLACK = Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in Col. 402 Pure Black
o RED = Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in Col. 416 Red Wine
 I crochet loosely and use a 2.75-3.00mm hook with 8ply yarn but everyone differs. Generally, the hook you use for amigurumi will be a smaller than for other crochet as you want the stitches tight.
 The yarn thickness and hook size used will affect the size of the finished item. My Star is approximately 15cm tall (6 inches).
