Crochet dog

2013_02_20_9999_13

I made this little dog using this Amidogs Boxer pattern from PlanetJune. My dog looks quite different from hers, in part because I put the legs on a little differently and in part because I was trying to make it look like my sister’s all-white Schnoodle (Schnauzer poodle mix) rather than a brown and black boxer.

June Gilbank’s crochet patterns are always beautifully put together – I wrote about one of her dinosaur patterns that I love here. She also has awesome video crochet tutorials, if you want to learn how to crochet or gain a few new skills!

Do you have a favorite crochet pattern? I have this dream of crocheting a Waldorf-style doll, but don’t know how to make the pattern myself. Learning how to design crochet patterns is on my to learn someday list.

  1. I know you must get this a lot but it is super cute. I might want to crochet this dog sometime for my younger brother. It looks like his favorite character in Hank the cowdog series, Drover, an all white stub-tailed mutt. You should make Hank next :P.

    Very cute!! I love how you modified it to look more like your sister’s dog. :)

  3. OMG, this is so pretty! I even created a new Pinterest board with this hoping that one day I’ll pick up crocheting as a hobby :)

  4. Ah, it’s so cute! That would be awesome to start writing your own patterns, including a Waldorf style doll!

  5. My crochet skills can hardly be called skills at all, but I wish I knew enough to make things like this little pup!

    1. I bet you could do it! It’s not nearly as hard as it looks – essentially single crochet over and over, with a few increases and decreases.

  6. This is so cute! My kids would love these! I like granny squares but I think I have only ever followed one pattern which was a very simple sack you make in the round. I am going look at what she has!

    1. If you can crochet in the round you can make this dog! I think you would really like her patterns – she has all sorts of animals!

  7. I pretty much am doing good to keep the things I crochet in a rectangle right now, I tried a hat, and totally messed up the pattern somehow, it was still a hat, just didn’t look like the pattern.

    Now, sewing….. I’d whip that sucker up in an hour or so.

    1. That would definitely be the easier option, but I have this obsession with “sculpting” it out of yarn. We’ll see if I ever make either version.

      That book looks great! Were you able to order it through Amazon Japan, or did you get it some other way?

  8. So sweet! I love seeing all your projects – and I can’t wait to see the Waldorf style doll. I have no doubt that you will learn how to design your own crochet patterns. You absolutely amaze me with the amount you manage to accomplish.

    1. Thanks! I think I have the basic knowledge I need for designing patterns; I just need some quiet time to wrap my head around it!

    1. I have a Ravelry account, but I have never really done anything with it. I need to check it out. Thanks for the link to that bunting doll!
