- written instructions in English (US terms) and Italian

The body is worked in one piece starting from the bottom to the top of the head. All the other pieces are worked separately and sewn to the body.
To make this amigurumi it isn’t necessary to use the recommended yarn and crochet hook. Using a larger crochet hook, and a suitable yarn, the amigurumi will be larger preserving the same proportions.
