If it's not available you can use any type of Worsted Weight (4) yarn, it just needs to be the same thickness as Caron One Pound yarn or Red Heart Supersaver.

Absolutely loved this! I did use a slightly larger than recommended yarn, but by using a pretty small hook, I made it work. The shape makes it to where even with the larger yarn, it stays on my head. Only has to make a couple adjustments on the eyelids, and that was because of my yarn choice. For this to work so well on a yarn larger than recommended, I imagine it would be absolute perfection whenever I make one with the right size yarn! Makes me VERY happy!

This was a great pattern - easy to read and understand and fun to make! The video was also helpful for context as well. I bought a roll of soft tulle and used a few feet to use to stuff the pouch and it worked great.

Very easy pattern to follow. This project was a lot of fun and worked up quick! Tentacles were the most time consuming part.

Fun pattern to make and the hat is super cute. The video tutorial came in handy a couple times just to check my work.
