This pattern is for a floppy, huggable toy dog. The pattern employs stranded color work and two dimensional shaping that will be familiar to anyone who has done two color mittens and who would like to branch out to knitting toys. The pieces are all knit separately then blocked, loosely stuffed, and joined. Knitting, joining, and stuffing separately in this manner allows the fabric to be knit tight enough to make a sturdy toy but also creates nice flexible joints. With all the features done in color work, there is the novelty of no embroidery or embellishments to do after seaming! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Fair isle Working in the round GAUGE 34sts and 38 rows = 4 inches / 10cm in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS approximately 13.5? tall

Supplies Needed

  • Fingering weight yarn, Approximately 125yds MC and 100yds CC
  • US size 1 needles, either 4 DPNs or one 40" circilar

Hi folks! I'm Annie and I have been crafting since before I knew what "crafting" was. I took up knitting in 2002 on a whim when I found a pamphlet in a Michaels store. I've been hooked ever since. I have been designing my own things for years but only started sharing them just over a year ago. I'm so happy to share all my ideas with everyone else!
