The Kangaroo from the pictures is made using Himalaya Dolphin Baby yarn (less than a skein of the main colour) and a 4.0mm size hook. My plushie, made with these materials is about 20cm (8 inches) high) with ears. Of course you can use any yarn you like. We also offer the pattern for a big (40cm / 16 inches) kangaroo – CLICK.
The pattern is meant for the beginners and intermediate crocheters.
