This pattern refers to “Main Color”. This is the main color you will use for your dog. We start by creating the head, which leads into the body and tail. This is crocheted in all one piece. Next, we make the eyes and eyelids if desired. We then create the ears, arms and legs, and collar. Then we’re done!

  1. These, along with all of your other toys, are adorable!!! Thank you so much for sharing them with us!!!!!

    1. Aw thank you so much Judy, I really appreciate you saying that! So very nice of you 🙂 I hope you come back to my site for more fun amigurumis in the future. I’m getting ready to make some summer related amigurumis since it’s starting to warm up outside 😄

  2. So adorable! Reminds me of my older sons favorite stuffed animals growing up. “Pound Puppies” 💙

    1. Thank you so much! Pound puppies are such a classic toy, I’m glad to hear that they reminded you of your son! That’s so sweet ❤️

  3. how can i save or print your pattern. I am 78 years old and cannot sit in front of the computer for long periods of time. thank you for your help.

    gramz

  4. When I come around the other side on row 1, I’m coming up with more than 18 SC. What in the world am I doing wrong? Adorable pattern, btw!

    1. Hi Nicki, thank you for your comment! So for Round 1 when we chain 21. We will single crochet a total of 3 times into the 2nd chain from the hook (so we’ve used up 2 chains so far). Next, single crochet in the next 18 chains (we’ve used a total of 20 chains so far). Now we will have one chain left on this side. Single crochet 3 times in that last ch (we’ve now used all 21 chains). Now we work on the other side of the chain. So single crochet in the next 18 stitches.

      I hope explaining it that way can help you follow along as your crochet! I’m thinking maybe you messed up when we do the 3 single crochets in the last chain?
      If you have any questions or need clarification please feel free to let me know 🙂 Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy this pattern!

  5. You are so creative and talented. Thank you for sharing your gift of creativity by making these patterns. I have only done the hound dog can’t wait to try the other patterns you so generously share.
