This guy was named "Puppy Dog" by my 2 year old little boy. I was about half way thru making the second version of this pattern and my son kept asking for Puppy Dog when ever I was working on it. My boys know that they can't have my stuffed animals until they are all done and I have had a chance to take pictures. Now finally my little guy gets to cuddle his Puppy Dog.
Puppy Dog is a huge 19 inches tall which is a fantastic size for a giant hug for little ones. This softie is made from Bulky weight yarn so it works up super fast. Also, I'm not a huge fan of sewing up at the end of a project so all my patterns are designed to have as few seams that need sewing as possible.
This pattern provides easy-to-read instructions complete with tons of color pictures. Additional support is also available through e-mail.
Skills used in this pattern include the following: knit, purl, simple decreasing, simple increases, knitting in the round and mattress seam.
