Gauge is not a critical factor for this project. If desired, it can be made with any size hook and with any weight of yarn. Adjust hook size/yarn size to obtain desired fabric. I am a very tight crocheter and you may find that you need to go down a hook size or two to eliminate unsightly holes in your toy.
