You Will Need:
12ply yarn. I used Panda Amber. Unfortunately it's discontinued, but any yarn as thick as that will do.

4mm needles.
Black yarn to embellish face. It doesn't really matter what ply it is, but I used 8ply.

Inc 1 st, k 1

Continue using this method of inc first st, then knitting to end of row until you reach 14cm long.

Repeat this until you're left with 1 st.

Fill with stuffing, and then finish sewing up.
