Droebel, crochet dog pattern

And now I proudly present to you, Droebel the crochet dog, woof!

amigurumi dog crochet pattern

When I designed this crochet pattern, creating a dog looking doll was my idea. A funny looking amigurumi character that could be enjoyed by every one who loves dogs and animals. I think I succeeded and am ever so excited, isn’t he cute!

It was when Droebel was finished that I noticed he reminds me a little bit of Gromit, that clever and pleasant companion of Wallace. You know, from those amazing clay animations created by Aardman. I can easily imagine Droebel having all sorts of thrilling adventures. Yes, he is an adventure dog. Just look at him!

Generally, I find the sketch and the doll of a similar cuteness. The dolls never are exactly as the sketches, but they come close. This time however, I find the doll much cuter and better looking than the sketch I made. Droebel looks like the younger version of himself in the sketch. I’m very happy I managed to get that puppy look. Maybe it is because of my new shaping technique for which I used a rather simple and clever trick.

For this crochet dog pattern I have chosen to use soft colours. It makes him look very rustic and even a bit retro, which I like. Droebel is sitting 4.9 inch/ 12.5 cm when made with a worsted weight yarn. I thought of giving him a coloured collar or handkerchief scarf, but decided not to and leave him plain and simple. It is up to you crafters to give him accessories and I’m sure some of you will not hesitate to do so!

Now where can you find this pattern

The crochet pattern for Droebel the dog you can find in my shop at Ravelry, Etsy or order it here. As always, it contains a clear description of how to crochet and assemble the wee dog with example pictures at the bottom to help you get everything right. In the pattern you can also find what materials you need, the yarn colour numbers, in short, everything you need to know to make your own barking friend.

And heads up, the pattern has a one dollar release discount till the end of May.

Sjuffel, crochet dog pattern

This has become the favourite crochet animal I’ve made so far. It’s always a challenge to bring the sketch to life and this time I like the finished dog better than the sketch. He’s just such a sturdy looking dog when standing up, and laying flat he’s a sweet stuffed little doggy friend. I’ve made a beagle haven’t I?

This crochet pattern is very versatile and still easy to crochet. The dog can both stand up and lay down, which makes him very lively. I also added examples of different colour options, so everyone can make the kind of dog he likes, using my examples or creating their own colour scheme.

You can find the pattern for this crochet dog in my shop and in my Ravelry shop. You can also order it directly from me hereThe dog is 7,9 inch / 20 cm long. He’s made with my favorite Icelandic fuzzy yarn. When using pipe cleaners you will be sure the dog will be steady when standing up and perfectly flat when laying down. Without the use of cleaners he’ll need a bit more help to stand good and lay nice, but he still can do it. The crochet dog pattern is written in standard American crochet terms. It contains clear instructions and many example pictures.

This crochet dog looks very different standing than flat. The flat one makes a good baby toy, the standing dog is more grown up.

I hope everyone who was looking forward to this patterns likes what he sees!

My dog amigurumi is called Sjuffel after the basset hound puppy we had shortly when I was a kid. My father and I really, really loved dogs but my mum was a bit scared of them, but a basset hound she found the least scary. They made an arrangement with a kennel so we could have a dog puppy for ‘trial’ and if she still would be too uncomfy, we could bring him back. A silly thing to do in some way, because I immediately got attached to Sjuffel and loved him and was sad when he was gone. But I am glad we did have him! Even though it was short, it was fun. Now I have this crochet Sjuffel.
