Stitch markers, toy stuffing (eg. polyfill or wool).


17 sts and 26 rnds = 4˝ / 10cm in st st in the rnd. Because the finished size isn’t important different yarn weights can be used. Use a needle 2-3 sizes smaller than the suggested needle for that yarn to obtain a tight gauge that won’t allow stuffing to show through.
