Dog - to cuddle and explore - Crochet Pattern
FLATIMAL - DOG
When children draw animals and Mom just crochets them like that. :)
Inspired by children‘s drawings the Flatimals were created.
Leave them empty and you get a wonderful cuddly toy. Put something exciting in them and you get an awesome sensory toy. Those are especially fascinating for babies and toddlers. For filling you could use for example flat beads, crinkle foil or flat squeakers.
All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for (practiced) beginners as well. This pattern contains 8 pages of crochet instructions and 15 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.
Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals as well as back and forth in rows.
With Sport weight yarn and 3.0 mm hook the Dog gets to be about 15 cm long and 12 cm tall.
You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn.
MATERIAL Amount of Sport weight yarn: 25 g for the body 2 g for the ear 1 g white for the eye a bit of black for the pupil
optional filling material: e.g. crinkle foil, flat wooden beads, flat squeakers...
FORMAT -pattern in PDF format (with watermarks) - to open and read the file you need a specific program, e.g. Adobe‘s free Acrobat-Reader (www.adobe.com)

I'm Stephanie, mother of three and I live with my family in Germany.
I've been crocheting for a while now. My kids got me to it. When there's no merchandising on the market for the current favorit comic figure you just have to make it yourself. That's how my first crocheted figure came to life. And with that my crochet addiction. :)
My patterns are for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Stuffed with photos and detailed step-by-step instructions (I think you could call them photo-tutorials). I learned crocheting by myself and often found it quite frustrating to get stuck in the middle of a pattern just because some key-information was simply missing (as a beginner pretty much everything is key-information). That's why in my patterns almost everything is explained with words and photos.
I'm currently converting my older patterns into a new layout. Here on Makerist you can find all the patterns that already have the new layout plus all my new creations.
Have fun browsing through my patterns and happy crocheting!
