  • toy stuffing
  • tapestry needle

  • stitchmarkers
  • chenille stems (optional)

Depending on your yarn you may need to change to bigger or smaller hook size, find one that works best for you!

We recommend working the patterns in DK weight yarn and a matching crochet hook.
Similar 100% cotton yarn from other brands are: Paintbox Cotton DK, DMC Happy Cotton DK, Hobium La Mia Cottony.

Using a smaller crochet hook and thinner yarn the amigurumi will be smaller in size while preserving the same proportions. We suggest: Anchor Baby Pure Cotton, Hobbii Rainbow 8/4, DMC Natura Just Cotton.

Some of the animal’s shapes could lose a bit of the definition if made in acrylic or wool yarns.
