Cuddle Dog

P5

This is my Cuddle Dog, a pink dachshund! She is great for snuggling, and little ones can use her as a pillow!

Here’s a picture of all the parts before assembly (although the nose is already sewn to the head):

It’s a fairly easy pattern. I used cotton yarn that gives 160 m/ 50 g (175 yds/1.8 oz.) and a 2,5 mm hook. The length of my dog is about 35 cm (14″).

Materials needed: 1 skein (50 g) of each color: dark pink/magenta, medium pink, light pink and white. Some stuffing. (You can use different shades of another color yarn if you want.)
