Sizing / Finished Measurements:
Finished size approx. 38 cm (15 inches) high.
Any red, pink, bright green and a little bit of brown yarn you like for main parts. I used VITA cotton 'Coco' (100% mercerized cotton ? 240 m ?50 g).
Some white fuzzy yarn for finishing sleeves, cap and hem of the coat. I used ALPINA Baby (53% polyester, 47% bamboo, ? 210 m ? 50 g).
Leftovers of fuzzy yarn for the beard. I used NAZAR 'Swan's Down' (100% polyamide ? 170 m ? 100 g).
Steel hooks. I use - 1 mm (US steel hook - 12; UK Steel hook - 6.5) for main yarn, 1,5 mm (US steel hook - 8; UK Steel hook - 4.5) for fuzzy yarn and 3,5 mm (US steel hook - 00; UK Steel hook - No) for the beard.
Copper wire covered with plastic (you have to be able to bend it with hands, but it has to keep the shape). Amount depends of your yarn (I used a bit more than 90 cm of wire 3 mm).
Plaster - adhesive-backed fabric tape 1-1.5 cm wide to work up the wire cuts (the tape you use to cover wounds (first aid)) and to join wire frame.
