Materials List

Galler Yarns Flore II yarn (1.75 oz/50 g/100 yds/91 m/75% kid mohair, 15% wool, 10% nylon/light weight) – 1 skein in each of two colors, or approximately in 100 yds in Main Color and 35 yds in Color B.

Small amount of brown embroidery floss.

US E-4/3.5 mm crochet hook or any size needed to obtain gauge.

Yarn needle.

Stitch marker.

Fiber filling.

Finished Size

Approximately 3.75” tall (9.5 cm) from base of body to top of head.


Body through Round 12 = 3.75” (9.5 cm). Exact gauge is not critical for this project but stitches should be small so that fiber filling doesn’t show.
