Funmigurumi Poochie Dog No. 4: Toby

Best Blog Tips





I got the idea for Toby and had to let it go round and round my mind for a little bit before I could put it together, but here he is! His textured face will be a lot of fun for any Ami lover, young or old.
You might think that it would have been easier to have made Toby using the loop stitch, but that stitch wasn't going to give me the look I wanted, that is the reason why I made Toby this way.
Materials:
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Bright Yellow
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Black
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Soft Brown
Crochet hook size H
Crochet hook size C or B
Pins
Fiberfill
Scissors
Blunt needle
Body (make 2)- With Bright Yellow and H hook, ch 33. Row 1- 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across (32 sc). Ch 1, turn. Rows 2 to 31- make 1 sc in each sc across. Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew with. If you want to, sew bottom and sides of body as soon as you have finished both sides (I like to finish as I go, it makes the toy come alive quicker), leaving the top open for stuffing. Place both right sides facing and sew the sides and the bottom using the tails you left as you crocheted. Fasten off. Turn both inside out and set aside.
Muzzle-Ch 8. Rnd 1- 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch till 1 chain before end of row, 2 sc in last ch of row. Turn arund and make 1 sc in each
of the loops of foundation chain until you reach the one before the last one, 2 sc in that last loop. Slip st to join round.
Rnd 2- 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, *1 sc in each of next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, rep from * around, slip st to join round.
Rnd 3- 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of next 3 sc, * 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 3 sc, rep from * around and slip st to join rnd.
Rnd 4- 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of next 4 sc, *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 4 sc, rep from * around, slip st to join rnd.
Rnd 5- 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of next 5 sc, *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each ofnest 5 sc, rep from * around. Slip st to join rnd.
Rnd 6- 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of next 6 sc, *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 6 sc, rep around, slip st to join rnd.
Rnd 7- 1 sc in each sc around, slip stitch to join rnd. Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew with.
Moustaches- (Make 2): Ch 8. Row 1- 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn. Row 2-(Working on back loops only) 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. Rows 3 to 5- Rep row 2. Rows 3 to 5-(Working in back loops only): Rep row 2. Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew with. Moustache hair: Measure and cut 26 strands of yarn 8 inches long . How to attach strands: Once you have your lengths of yarn cut, proceed to attach the "hair" to the piece as follows: Turn the piece over and working on the loops on the wrong side (the side where the back loop stitches are more prominent), fold 1 strand of yarn in half and using a size C or B crochet hook, inser the hook into the first loop downwards, pull up the strand of yarn by its middle, making a loop in the hook, pull that loop up until you are able to manually pass the ends of the strand through the loop, pull again to close the loop and secure the strand in place. Repeat with evbery loop on that row. Rows 2 to 5- Rep row 1. Once you have finished with all the strands, take the hook and pull the strands to the front, carefully leaving the knots in the back. Sew the piece in place on the side of the muzzle by stitching the edge of the piece all around with the tail you had left. Fasten off.
Eyebrows- With Bright Yellow and H hook, ch 4. Row 1- 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across, (3 sc), ch 1, turn.

Cut 18 strands of yarn 4 inches long (9 per brow). Fold strands in half and hook them to the side of eyebrow strip where the back loop work is prominent.
Pull to the front just as you did for Mustache. Pin in place above eyes. Take tail and thread a blunt needle,sew in place as seen in photos.
Note: You can add more if you want to but by now I figure you must be tired of cutting, hooking and pulling.

Pull the loops through to the other side, leaving only the knots on the wrong side. Using the tail you left, thread a blunt needle and sew Toby's tail into a tube, close up the bottom of the tube and bring thread up and attach the tail to Toby's back on the 13th row, (counting from the bottom) well centered. Fasten off.

Funmigurumi Poochie Dog No. 3: Missy

Best Blog Tips














Here's Missy, Spots' little sister. She's delicate in her movements, even elegant, but a regular tomboy as well. She's a fast runner, a limber fence climber (sigh!), a ferocious guard dog, and a finicky eater, but oh, such a loving and beautiful dog! No toy will do her justice, so I seek to capture only her funny side, because she's a regular clown as well. She's just a big-hearted girly dog who is not above being the ring-leader in mischief. She has drop-dead gorgeous eyes and loves to carry around her Milk Bone like a cigar.
(The real names of our dogs are Cody and Daisy, but I am only trying to cartoon their personalities in these toys, that is why I have also changed their names.) They have also big, soulful, yellow eyes and spotted bodies. They also have long hair, so I decided to add shells to Missy's boddy to represent her long fur.
Hope you enjoy this one also!

Funmigurumi Poochie Dogs No. 2: Spots

Best Blog Tips

We have had the most wonderful dogs (I think all dog lovers feel the same way about their pups!) For one reason or another, all of ours have had spots. So, I'm inspired to share my own take on wonderful, fun, loving, spotted dogs. Without any more hoopla, here's Spots, the lovable goofball.
Spots' biggest problem is that he cannot believe how is it that Mama has a radar that always catches him red-handed! (Sometimes his sister is the instigator of the mischief and he's just playing along) so he puts on this lovable, "I don't know what you're talking about look". . .hoping to get away with it!
Hope you enjoy the pattern.
