How To Crochet A Sleeping Dog?

Below you will find all the necessary materials for making a sleeping dog like mine. You can use your own yarn and color, or the yarn that I recommended below.

Materials

You can choose any colors you like, below is my choice for you as a reference. Looking for the best yarn for amigurumi project? Read the post to find out more.

  • Sport weight yarn #2 with colors: orange, yellow, black, white. I recommend this kind of yarn for a beautiful result, Yarnart Begonia with color code #5307 and #003.
  • Hook size 2.3 mm. I recommend this Hamanaka hook, perfect for crochet lovers. The grips are ergonomically designed to fit your hand when working and they are also designed to be long lasting. (or try with this Hamanaka hooks set, the hooks come with colourful bright rubber grips with the sizes printed on, making it easy to identify and select the right hook for your project.)
  • Scissors, pins, needles. Fiberfill stuffing.

Abbreviations

This pattern is written using US TERM. For beginners, please refer to this post to learn about all basic crochet stitches for beginners.

Notes

  • For a better result, use single crochet cross stitch (yarn under) and invisible single crochet decrease stitch unless otherwise specified.
  • Work in a continuous spiral unless otherwise specified.
  • Finished size is approx 10 cm (height) and 14 cm (length), (sport yarn)
