DK yarn
3 mm hook
long darning needle
Fibrefill

34 y/31m DK yarn

20 SC/DC and 20 Rows = 4 inch

Add a few polly bead to the base for stability.

This pattern is also available in US terms

I initially made these just because the thought made me smile, I have since made them as favours at a baby shower.

Quick and simple to make, ideal for the competent novice crocheter, as gauge is not important you can use any yarn and suitable hook but to make quite stiff figures about 2 inches high I used DK and a 3 mm hook. Enjoy.
