Pattern Description:

I designed Carlton because I wanted to use up all of those partial skeins of yarn I had in my stash! And I didn't want to crochet an afghan!

This is the perfect project to use up all of those leftover bits of yarn that you don't know what to do with.... and get an adorable (and HUGE!) plushie as a result!

Carlton is pretty easy to crochet, and you can use any color-combo you want. And here's the secret... no matter what crazy yarns you use, no one will ever know that you were just using up scraps! I've included a guide for organizing your colors, so the stripes will look totally planned :) Isn't that the best feature of all?

This pattern will work with any weight yarn... even different weights together! For my sample, I used worsted weight yarn for most of my crocheting... but used up some sport and fingering weight by crocheting it held double! Use a bulky, and end up with a super-big pup!

Gauge:

Gauge isn't important... just use a hook that matches the thickness of your yarn, and you're good to go!

  • 700 yards of Worsted Weight yarn
