You’ll just need a few yards of 4ply/DK/aran or worsted yarn. (I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino)

Hook | A crochet hook, or size appropriate for the yarn you’re using. (I used 3.5 mm - E USA)
Materials | Toy filling or some other stuffing material,  Yarn needle

Size | This will vary depending of the weight of yarn and size of hook you use.
(Mine are 8cm/3” across and 3cm/1” high)
Gauge | Will vary with weight of yarn and size of hook used. 
You just want it to be tight enough to hold a nice shape when stuffed.
