Amigurumi Sausage Dog (Just Add Mustard!)

Stop the presses: this amigurumi sausage dog might be the cutest thing I’ve ever crocheted.

“Who me?”

“Yes you!”

The pattern is from Adorable Amigurumi. A friend picked it up for a couple of francs at a second hand book sale.

Look at this cute lil book! So many new creatures to crochet!

… and specifically pointed out the amigurumi¬†dachshund. When that same friend had a birthday, well, I knew what to make her.

He’s knitted in scraps of acrylic – and I mean scraps, I completely ran out of that yarn and had to undo the ears to finish the body! The ears were re-crocheted in leftover Cascade 220. I’ve no idea what the main colour yarn is, but I fuzzed it up with a hairbrush to give it a softer look than you usually get with acrylics.

Aww, don’t look so hangdog! We can’t all be pure wool!

There’s a pipe cleaner shoved through his neck to help with poses, but like most amigurumi, this little sausage dog is crocheted so tightly he doesn’t need much help sitting up.

Cute nose for crocheted amigurumi dog

The nose and safety eyes I bought from Etsy. I’d totally recommend the shop – they have excellent service! It was a pretty small investment and having “proper” eyes really makes a difference in creating the cutest amigurumi! I love how differently the same eyes look on different crocheted creatures too. Look how different the same eyes look on a crocheted fried egg, for example!

I added a couple of buttons from my stash as dog tags too.

Over all, I’m really pleased with how this little fella turned out. I love making amigurumi (I know, you’d never guess from the title of this blog) and really don’t do it enough! All those little pieces can be such a pain to crochet, but when they all come together, the result’s pretty special, don’t you think?

And now I want to make an amigurumi sausage dog for myself.

    In the last six months, I’ve sewed a whole bunch of face masks. Most face masks fit well, but none were perfect. We picked up a couple of ready-made reusable face masks to try out, and J decided he preferred them. The pattern is easy as anything to make – easier than any other pattern […]
