Amigurumi Dog Crochet Pattern

The Dog, man’s best friend. Although the dog is descended from wolves, most of these four-legged friends have little in common with the wolves of the wild. While most wolves still look very similar, today’s dogs have all kinds of shapes, colors and exist even in handbag-friendly sizes.

Especially easy to carry around is this little crochet dog. In addition, he is housebroken and does not need to be fed. It is unknown which breed he belongs to, but you will certainly enjoy him anyway.

This crochet Dog is exclusively crocheted with single crochet stitches in spiral rounds with increases and decreases and is therefore perfect for beginners.

The depicted Amigurumi Dog has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has sitting a height of 4.5 cm.

Assembling the Dog

Legs: After you’ve finished crocheting all pieces, start sewing the legs onto the body. Start sewing the first leg onto the body directly over the edge that was created by the round that was crocheted only into the back loop. Sew on the second leg 4 to 5 stitches left or right from the first leg, again just over the edge.

Arms: Sew the arms left and right onto the body, 1 stitch row under the “neck”. Do not sew the arms directly over the legs but slightly behind the legs.

Eyes: Attach the safety eyes after the 7th stitch row counting from the top center of the head. The eyes are 4 stitches apart from each other.

Muzzle: Sew the muzzle to the head centered below the eyes.

Nose: Embroider the nose with a coffee-colored thread. Embroider these on the middle of the already sewn on muzzle. To do this, pull the thread horizontally several times from one stitch through the next, skipping one stitch.

Tail: Sew the tail to the back of the body centered over the stitch edge.

Ears: Sew the ears onto the top of the head with a distance of 3 stitch rows from the top center of the head.
