When I retired, I felt like it was time to do a bit of 'give back' to the community, so I involve myself in a little voluntary work, and take great pleasure from knitting for charity......when I designed this pattern (which has been tested for accuracy), I thought that publishing it would perhaps help me to raise a little extra cash to donate to the local charity Caritas. I sell any toys I make if I can, and all the monies, apart from the cost of materials is given to this very worthwhile charity. I would be so delighted if you buy and enjoy this pattern as much as I have designing it and making it. Hopefully over time I will be able to add more patterns to my portfolio xxView all patterns by designer (11) »
This cute little puppy dog is absolutely adorable, and with a little patience is so easy to create. My husband and I used to have Beardies, and when I designed this, he so reminded us of our own furry friends. It isn't a huge project, but the pattern is written with easy to follow instructions to both knit and construct. There is always a child....or an adult who likes cuddlies that would just love to have one of these.
As a final note, I would like to say that when knitting this pattern, if you find you are the odd stitch out....please don't worry, as always remember that this is one pattern that you don't have to fit to anyone's body!!!
Gauge isn't too important for this pattern, as the end result doesn't need to fit anybody! By using a small needle, which is what I have suggested, it makes a firm fabric, and this way, the stuffing doesn't peep out from it.
