This pattern Was created for my grandmothers Birthday. She had a much loved pug when she was newly married and has collected pug things ever since it passed away all those years ago.
She was feeling down on her birthday and I wanted to cheer her up. I made her two and she loved them!
The best kind of dog is the kind you don't have to feed, or clean up after!
Worsted weight yarn (I used simply soft)
Crochet Hooks in size H and E
Amigurumi eyes (or buttons)
Scraps of Black Felt
Pink embroidery Floss
6 Inch Pipe Cleaner
About 4 inches tall and 4-5 inches long.
Not important. This is a toy so if it comes out slightly bigger than my finished size that's ok! Changing the hook to a larger size and using a bigger yarn will also make the toy bigger.
You can also change the hook to a smaller size and use thread if you are really ambitious.
The Head and Body are made using the Magic Adjustable ring. If you do not wish to do this simply Chain 2 and make the amount of single crochets into the second stitch instead of the ring.
