Materials:

● 100% Cotton yarn (I used Dmc happy cotton for this project): Brown, beige, turquoise. For the necklace and embroidery I used traces of color yellow, pink, white, black and red.

● Crochet hook according to the thickness of the yarn used. In this pattern I used a 2.5 mm crochet. 

● Toy stuffing.

● Yarn needle.

● Scissors, sewing pins and stitch markers (if you do not have you can use a thread, a hairpin, a safety pin, etc.).

mr – Magic ring

st / sts – Stitch / stitches      

sl st – Slip stitch
