Dalmatian and German Shepherd

While this year of school is almost over, I thought it would be a fun idea to make some softies for my little brothers (I have got one brother who is 6 now, and the other is 3). They absolutely love a series called ”Paw Patrol”, so of course I had to make Marshall and Chase. But when I had made them, I thought they would fall from grace if I dressed them up like in ”Paw Patrol” (not that I do not like the series, I honestly think it is really fun). So before dressing them up I used them as a general pattern for a dog. With some variations you can basically make any kind of dog.

Here they are sitting on my couch:

The pattern
I used a 4 mm crochet needle and matching yarn. You will need a darling needle, some fiberfill and a stitch marker. For the eyes I used 10 mm safety eyes, but you can also crochet eyes or embroider eyes on your dog.

Used abbreviations:

  • sc – single crochet
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • mr – magic ring
  • inc – increase
  • dec – decrease
  • FO – fasten off
  • ch – chain
  • till end – till end of round
