This pattern will show you how to make your own Yarn Buddy in one of two ways: either using safety eyes (the more difficult version) or using felt (the simpler version). You can pick whichever version you like best, but it’s adorable either way!

The pattern uses less than 1 skein of worsted weight yarn (I used I Love This Cotton! Yarn) in the main color and accent colors. You’ll also need a size E (3.5mm) crochet hook, a tapestry needle, fiberfill stuffing, and a pipe cleaner. I would recommend using a stitch marker to keep your place. Depending on which option you choose, you’ll also need either either 6mm safety eyes or felt, and you may want to use fabric glue to help hold everything in place.

Gauge isn’t crucial, so you can use different yarns/hooks as long as you make sure your stitches are tight enough to keep the stuffing from showing (but you may want to adjust the length of the yarn buddy’s crochet hook if you alter the size of the yarn buddy).
