My oldest son loves dachshunds. When we decided to get a dog a few years ago, he wanted a dachshund. Since my youngest son has allergies, we couldn't get a shedding dog - so I had to design a wiener dog just for my oldest :) This amigurumi has been climbing the charts to become my number one seller quickly. He - or she - is cute, simple and fun to make. It has been one of my favorites to design. This original CraftyDeb crochet amigurumi pattern is designed by Deb Richey.
