I tried making a little doggie using a pattern, but the muzzle looked way different than the photo in the book. So i just kept crocheting, i added a couple legs and this is what happened:
Want one? Well, here we go:
ww yarn ( i used Vanna’s Choice in beige, red heart soft in green, and red heart white)
4 sc in a ring
rd1: 2 sc in each sc around (8 sc)
rd2: 2 sc in each sc around (16 sc)
rd3: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (24 sc)
rd4-9: sc in each sc around (24 sc)
rd10: sc2tog over first 2 sc, sc in next 3 sc around (20 sc)
rd11-14: sc in each sc around (20 sc)
rd15: sc in next 6 sc, fold piece in half, sl st in middle sc to join the two sides, sc around the new ‘leg’ (12 sc)
rd16-19: sc in each sc around (12 sc)
rd20: change color to green, sc in next 12 sc (12 sc)
rd21: sc in next 2 sc, 2sc in next 4 sc, sc in last 6 sc (16 sc)
rd22: sc in next 3 sc, (2sc in next, sc) 3 times, sc in last 7 sc (19 sc)
rd23 & 24: sc in each sc around (19 sc)
rd25: In Back Loop Only, sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc around
rd26: sc2tog, sc in next sc around
rd27: sc2tog around, fasten off
Join beige yarn with a sl st at the ‘crotch’, sc around
Repeat rds 16-27.
with white, 5 sc in a ring
rd1: 2 sc in each sc around (10 sc)
rd2: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (15 sc)
rd3: sc in each sc around (15 sc)
I stuffed the body/head thing before i fastened off the first leg, and again before totally finishing the second leg.
Sew the nose on before joining the two sides, and use whatever colors you like for the nose and mouth.
The bird is a smaller version of the bigger ‘thing’, and i used a spare ear from another project for its beak.
And now more from my kitties:
The baby kittens are now trying to ‘meow’ their way out of the girls closet
I had the closet blocked with a couple of the plastic shelves from one of those organizer things from walmart, but Tasha has caught Snowball trying to move them under Madaleines bed. In my opinion, that’s not a great place cause now we’re gonna have to watch our step!!!
