Amigurumi Pattern | Mini Puppy Key-chain

Hello! This is another pattern blog post again.
There's actually a book describing how to make a variety of chibi size dogs. You can refer to this book on issuu if you are interested in it. I actually tried to do according to the pattern in that book but it's in Japanese so I'm not really sure how to assemble all the stuffs or even if I am doing it in the correct way.... So I ended up making quite a wonky product. I also found this Inugurumi Etsy shop selling really really really cute crocheted dogs too! He made it exactly like the ones I saw in the pictures. Perfect!

Since I kinda failed mine, so I decided to free-style it.
I'm not sure if it looks like that particular breed but I was aiming for a baby dog poodle 


So here is my version of it!

Mini Puppy/Dog Pattern

  • Yarns - Brown Minlon acrylic yarn (I'm not sure what weight this is but I'm guessing it's Sport weight)
  • Felt for collar
  • 3.0mm crochet hook
  • Fabric glue
  • Tapestry needle
  • Black embroidery thread and needle
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
inc - increase
dec - decrease
* or * * - repeat following pattern until row ends
* * xA - repeat instr inside for A times
MR - Magic ring
BLO - Back loop only
F/O - finish off

Some basic explanation for the pattern I have written 
"inc" means sc x2 in the next sc
"inc by 3" means sc x3 in the next sc
"2sc" means sc x1 in the next sc, repeat 2x
"2inc" means sc x2 in the next sc, repeat 2x

**Remember to stuff the parts accordingly as you work the parts!

For the ears, I cut off a long piece of yarn and separated the yarn out, looped them between my fingers then tied them together with another piece of yarn, there's no need to separate the yarn we used for tying since we're going to sew them in on the head. 
As for the length, I looped the yarn around two of my fingers for 5 times. You can looped as many times as you want. 

Start assembling and there you go! 
I'm not writing any instructions on how you should put them together but I think it's pretty simple. A piece of advice, you can pin the parts together first before you sew them on so you can estimate better. Believe me, you'll have an easier time if you have some pins on your hand. Use them!
As for the nose, I just use black embroidery thread and sew on a triangle patch.
For the collar, just cut a long thin felt piece and wrap around the neck. Secure with some fabric glue.

Happy crocheting!
