To make this crochet pattern you will need the following materials.
Paintbox Cotton DK
[50g = 125m] or [1.7oz = 137 yards]

You can easily substitute with your favourite yarn, for the best results I recommend using a fine to medium weight yarn in Cotton or Acrylic. Another great cotton yarn I like to use to make my amigurumi is the Rainbow cotton yarn from Hobbii, this yarn is available in 8/4 = 4ply, 8/8 = dk and they also do a 8/6 which is somewhere in-between the other two. You can find the yarn here!
