- Size H/5mm crochet hook
- At least 1 skein of colored yarn of your
- Large blunt needle
- Fiberfill stuffing
- A liner for the stuffing to go into, pantyhose works great.
- You'll also find a measuring tape, and a row marker useful. I use a long piece of left-over yarn, just make sure its a different color than your project.

R7-105: Work 36 scs around or until project is aprox 27 inches or desired length. Remember to stuff the project as you go to make sure you'll reach the desired length. One good idea as well is to use old pantyhose as a liner to keep the stuffing from trying to come out of the holes. Tie knots in one end of the liner to start, stuff the project and tie the final knot when you're finished. (36 sts)

That's all there is to it! Its one of the easiest projects I've ever done, and if you're wondering I made mine to keep one of our pets out of the craft closet!
