Seriously Cute Crochet Pug!

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to tell you about this fabulous dog crochet book I just got!

Ami Ami Dogs lives up to its subtitle ~ Seriously Cute Crochet!

Look at this cute pug I made in no time flat!

I used Lion Brand Baby Alpaca Yarn and a size E crochet hook.

His collar is made from Lion Brand Amazing Yarn.

I love all of the colorways that Amazing comes in, and I was so excited to see that my Hobby Lobby now carries them in stock! Yippeeeee!

Here is the side view!

I used round plastic beads for his eyes so they are nice & buggy for the puggy!

I just love how he turned out!

He looks like he wants to play...

with Emmitt!

Tee Hee!

This was my first attempt at following a Japanese style chart pattern instead of a classic written out patttern.

I was a little intimidated when I first opened the book, but was surprised and pleased about how easy the chart was to follow.

I followed the books instructions for making the pug form and then went rogue and made my own ears, eyes, muzzle and nose. :)

I highly recommend this book as it is a wonderful pattern book to make dozens of breeds of dogs that all follow the same basic pattern with slightly different directions for ears, tails and coloring for the different features.

Please let me know if you make any!

I would love to see!

Your little puggie is so adorable and such a sweet friend for Emmitt.
I love the amazing yarn.
Those Japanese pattern books look a bit mind boggling at first but you soon get into it don't you - my Creepy Cute Crochet book has them too.
Hugs, Lynne
