Project Instructions

  • 1
    An exact gauge is not necessary for this project. Finished dog measures approximately 4-1/2 inch tall. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. sc2tog (sc decrease) = insert hook into st and draw up a loop; insert hook into next st and draw up a loop; yarn over, draw through all three loops on hook Notes: Work in continuous rnds; do not join or turn unless otherwise instructed.
