To make me you’ll need aran, worsted, or light worsted yarn, a 2.75mm hook, a bit of cardboard, stuffing, and some basic stitches.

A note about gauge:
Gauge isn’t terribly important in amigurumi, so it is okay to use a slightly larger hook if that is all you have. However, you don’t want to see stuffing through the stitches, so don’t get too big. Also, remember that if you scale up your ami, you may want larger snap eyes.
