I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran for this toy; however, you can use any yarn as long as you correspond your hook to the weight of your yarn. For this pattern, I used roughly 150-170g of Marine Blue (3-4 skeins of yarn), 10g of Red Wine (< 1 skein), 20g of Evergreen (< 1 skein), 10g of Champagne White (< 1 skein), 5g of Vintage Pink (< 1 skein), a little bit of Pure Black for the Pupils.
