Little Puppy (pattern by LittleOwlsHut)

Hello, the next project is Little Puppy (by LittleOwlsHut). You find the translation into Polish on LittleOwlsHutPolski Etsy shop and English version is available on Etsy too. I recommend you to visit Etsy to read about the materials the designer used in the pattern.
Below I present you the photos :)
Pattern was designed by Tatiana Knittoy.
The designer used following materials and tools:
  • Yarn:
“YarnArt Baby” - acrylic 100% (50 g. - 150 m);
- White - for the eyes;
- Pink - for the bow if making a girl;
- Blue - for the basket and a bow;
- Beige or light brown – for the dog;

You can use any smooth yarn, acrylic, wool, etc.
Tip: If you need exactly the same yarn ask in this shop
  • Stuffing for toys – Fiberfill;
  • Long tapestry needle (for sewing using yarn)
  • Crochet hook for the dog – 1.75 mm or any other suitable size for the selected yarn;
  • A pair of half-beads with diameter of 6 mm (2 pcs.);
  • White felt (small piece for eyes if you don’t want to crochet eyes)
  • Glue for attaching the half-beads to the head;
  • Nose for toys – 10 mm or embroider the nose.
The final size (with using the materials stated in the pattern) is approx. 6-7 cm (2.75 inches).

I used YarnArt Jeans and crochet hook 2 mm.

I started from the head and shaped the muzzle (details of shaping are given in the pattern):

Then I crocheted the body:



and ears:

You see all the parts in the picture below:

I made the eyes with the piece of white felt and safety eyes (I sawed the plastic ends of the eyes to get halfbeads). I used oval eyes (7 x 10 mm). 
I glued the eyes to the piece of white felt and then glued a piece of felt to the head.

Only details left - tail and nose (I embroidered the nose), bow and basket.

Embroidered nose


The dog was ready :)

Happy New Year!
