Adorable Crochet Dog Pattern
Designed by Michele Wilcox, the adorable puppy pictured above is crocheted using a specialized yarn, is tiny and easy to take along with you. If he gets dirty, he is also washable!
Great for gifts for all ages and all genders! He works wonderfully for birthdays or to wish someone to get well. You could make one up in a bright color to keep a loved one company in the hospital, or in their room at a nursing home. His small size makes him very versatile.
Since he is small, soft and has crocheted eyes and nose, he also makes a great gift for a baby shower or a small child.
The eyes and nose are crocheted making this little guy great for small children.
About the Yarn
This crochet dog pattern is worked using Red Heart Boutique Fur, which comes in 8 colors.
It can be a bit difficult to find, but online is probably your best bet. I was able to find it a few places online, except for the Red Heart store itself.
Perhaps there are similar yarns to this one in other brands.
This pattern works up fast and easy with this yarn, which is surprisingly easy to use and very forgiving. Also, it doesn’t shed!
