Penelope's huggable body makes her the perfect friend for someone in need of a little comfort and cheering up.
Yarn: 120-150 yards of main color (for body and arms) 75-100 yards of contrast color (for ears, feet and eye) Scrap yarn for belly button
Needles: One set of DPN's, 2-3 sizes smaller than size recommended for the yarn you are using (e.g., if yarn calls for US size 8, us US size 5-6 instead).
One 36" or longer circular needle in the same size as the DPN's
Gauge: Not important (yea!) It is important to use smaller needles than those normally recommended for the yarn; this is to create a tightly knit fabric so that the stuffing doesn't show through.
Notions: 2 buttons, safety eyes or scrap yarn for eyes (remember to keep the age of the recipient in mind for safety); white or off-white felt for teeth; stuffing; fabric glue, ribbon for her ear
Finished size: samples range in size from 10"-15"
