The Mandalorian

Materials

  1. Black, light grey, dark grey, brown and dark red yarn.
  2. Size H and J hooks.
  3. Stuffing
  4. Darning needle

As you go along, stuff the doll and do what works best for you. I stuff my dolls along the way and make sure I don’t stuff too much. I don’t wait until the last minute to stuff because it is sometimes hard to shape whatever you are making when you stuff at the end.
