This .PDF CROCHET PATTERN is written in ENGLISH, in STANDARD AMERICAN crochet terms.

With this very detailed pattern, you can make a super-realistic and playful golden retriever or labrador in a day.

Size of finished doll: If you use the recommended yarn, your dog will be 5.1 inch /13 cm high.

For this crochet dog you’ll need worsted weight yarn (Lètt Lopi) and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook. You’ll need one main colour: straw (1418) and a tiny amount of sheep black (0052, or any kind of dark worsted weight yarn) for the nose. You also need a little bit of any colour you like for the harness, I’ve used fjord blue (1701), and a tiny bit of a darker colour to embroider the nails (1419). For the eyes I’ve used 8 mm animal eyes. You will also need fibrefill and pellets for extra weight in the body (I use Hama beads). A pipe-cleaner to make the tail bendable is optional.

The crochet pattern contains
An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right.

Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.

This pattern was amazing! I used "fur" yarn so of course it ended up larger.

The pattern is excellent, maybe if you are new like me, you have difficulties at first, but when you understand, it is already very simple.

Someone sent me a photo of this little guy from the internet and asked me to make it for them. Grateful to have tracked down the pattern on Etsy. Pattern is easy to follow, but legs are a bit tricky to attach and I’m certain I didn’t do them right. I made 3 in total. One in a cotton yarn just to see if I could make it before committing to a friend and purchasing yarn. 2nd one was in Straw colorway using 3mm hook. 3rd one in Barley using 4mm. Loved making him so much I’m now searching for next pattern to buy from Son’s Popkes
