size depends on needle size and yarn
Worst weight acrylic yarn, one colour for skin, and as many colours as you chose for overalls, legs, eyes nose and mouth. (or yarn of choice, remember to change needle size to fit yarn-- this will also change the size of your doll) - Red Heart Curly Q yarn- colour of your choice for hair (you can use any yarn for hair but is recommended it be a textured yarn) -5 double pointed needles (size US 7 -4.5mm to obtain 21inch doll) (these sizes are suggestions to obtain 21inch doll) round needle (size US 7-4.5mm or a size close to it-- if you don't have round needle you can use scrap yarn) -OPTIONAL- tapestry needle to sew parts together stuffing of your choice (I use polyester Stuffing) -5 stitch markers, one for beginning of round, 4 for marking arms/sleeves and pants small button for back of top stitch holder or waste yarn -crochet hook similar in size to your needles
