Gauge: Gauge is not crucial, but your lovey might turn out to be a different size if you knit at a different gauge. For the blanket, use a needle that gives you a fabric that feels nice. For the head and paws, use a small enough needle to give you a pretty dense fabric so that your stuffing won’t show.
