You can use any yarn you have for this pattern. I love making it with plush yarns, but it can also be made with thinner yarns to create adorable smaller versions. In the pictures shown, I have made it with Hobbii Honey Bunny yarn.

Other Materials

  • Crochet hook, size appropriate to chosen yarn (I would recommend one or two sizes smaller than the recommended size on yarn label)

  • Yarn needle

*Please note that safety eyes are NOT recommended for children under the age of 3 years.
