Difficulty Level: Easy
Materials needed to create a 5 in (12.5cm) long toy:
- Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran in Lime Green, Vintage Pink, and Pure Black
- 3.5mm Crochet Hook
- Darning Needle
- Locking Stitch Markers
- Polyfil Stuffing or Scrap Yarn
I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran to create my little Alien friend, but you can use any cotton yarn as long as you correspond your hook to the weight of your yarn.
For this pattern, I used roughly 20-25g of Lime Green (about half a skein of yarn), a little bit of Vintage Pink for blush details, and a little bit of Pure Black for the mouth.
