Difficulty Level: Intermediate
Materials needed to create a 7.5 in (19cm) tall plush toy:
- Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran in Melon Sorbet, Misty Grey, Pale Dolphin Blue, and Champagne White
- 3.5mm Crochet Hook
- Darning Needle
- Locking Stitch Markers (Optional)
- Polyfil Stuffing or Scrap Yarn
- Felt Sheets for Details (Optional)
- Fabric Glue (Optional)
I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran to create Roberta the Astronaut, 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 40g of Misty Grey (a little less than one skein of yarn), 18g of Dolphin Blue (< half a skein of yarn), 10g of Melon Sorbet (< 1), and 35g Champagne White.
