This pattern can be worked in any color for a variety of real and imaginary dogs. The pattern includes instructions to make a black and tan dachshund, doberman or miniature pinscher dog. The pattern specifies when to change colors and is color coded to make the color work easier. The pattern can also be made in a single color without color work (to achieve weimeraner or other dog breeds). It is suitable for an intermediate amigurumi crocheter.
The finished product (as specified) measures about 5-6 inches nose to tail and stands 4 inches tall (standing dog). The dachshund is about 3" tall.
Materials you will need for one dog:
Size G/4.0mm crochet hook
Worsted weight or dk yarn (the larger the yarn, the bigger the dog)
2- 8 mm safety eyes
10 mm saftey nose
The pattern includes the following options in detail:
*Docked tail and natural/long tail
*Long legs and short legs
*Cropped ears (Doberman and Min Pin), natural ears (Doberman, Weimaraner), and long natural ears (Dachshund).
In the pictures, all three dogs are made using the same pattern. The Doberman and Weimaraner have the docked tail modification and the Dachshund has the long tail modification. The Dachshund and Weimaraner have the large natural ears and the Doberman has the regular natural ears (cropped ear mod not pictured).
