These cute Labradors are easy to make and result in such a cute toy. If you’re a dog lover, this pattern is for you! Even though this pattern is for a Labrador, you can just make it a generic dog! You could even customize the colors so it looks like your dog 🙂 Just add any specific spots in certain areas and you’ll have your very own dog in toy form!

All of the pieces in this pattern are very simple and use basic stitches. However, there are a lot of pieces which need to be sewn on.

Face Definition: (Optional)

Face definition can make the toy look cuter! The pictures show an eagle, but the steps are the exact same no matter which animal you try this technique out with.

Take a 12″ piece of white yarn and place it on a needle. Insert the needle where shown (Pic 1). Pull needle out next to the right of the toy’s eye (Pic 2).

Reinsert needle to the left of the toy’s eye (Pic 3). Pull needle out where shown, about 1 stitch over from where we originally inserted the needle (Pic 4).

3. 4.

Reinsert needle 1 stitch over (Pic 5). Pull needle out at the right side of the left eye (Pic 6)

5. 6.

Reinsert needle at the left side of the left eye (Pic 7). Pull needle out at the same stitch where we originally inserted out needle (Pic 8).

Pull both ends of yarn firmly to tighten the toy’s face (Pic 9). Tie both ends of yarn together a few times to form a knot (Pic 10).

9. 10.

Bring the tail ends of yarn into the toy’s head to hide the knot (Pic 11-12). Cut excess yarn.

  1. Is it possible for Pinterest for your projects. I do not have a printer.

    1. Hi Ronda! If you’d like, you can pin this pattern on Pinterest 🙂

  2. Why does the dog pattern show part of the eagle pattern in the directions?

    1. Hi Sharon!

      That section is to show how to do the face shaping technique. The pattern shows an eagle, but the method is the exact same regardless of which animal you try the technique on. Basically, we are threading yarn from the lower neck area to the eyes, back to the toy’s neck. We then pull the strings, which will tighten the face and give it a cuter shape!

      I hope this could help answer your question 🙂

  3. This is a cute pattern. Can you do one of a. American Bulldog, please? My brother loves those.
    Thank you.
