Amigurumi Shoki the Dog Free Crochet Pattern

Things you need to know about this project

 Work in continuous spiral, do not join, you will

be told when you need to close the rounds with a sl st.

 Crochet tight to prevent gaps between the stitches that will

not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric.

 For this dog project I used 3,0 mm crochet hook

The Dog high is about 30cm tall (12inch).

 Use a stitch marker or piece of yarn to mark the end or the beginning

 of a round, move the marker at the end of every round.

Tip! from this pattern you can make smaller or larger Dog

by using a bulkier or finer yarn. choose a smaller crochet hook at least one

size smaller then suggested on the yarn label. by changing the Dog size

make sure to adjust the size of the safety eyes, also you can use for the eyes

buttons, French knot or paint eyes.
