Dachshund Amigurumi Crochet Pattern


Supplies
One skein Red Heart Super Saver in Black
Small amount of Red Heart Super Saver in Warm Brown
Size F or G Crochet hook (depending on your tension)
Polyfil or other type of stuffing
Tapestry needle
Small amounts of black and white felt
Black embroidery floss and embroidery needle

All parts of this pattern are worked in the round. It is your choice whether to join your rounds or to work in a continuous spiral. I highly recommend a stitch marker (this can be a safety pin, a swivel clip keychain, or just a piece of scrap yarn) to keep track of your rows if you work in a spiral.

Dachshund’s Tail
Row 1: ch 2, 6sc in first ch. (6 sc)
Rows 2-10: sc around. (6 sc)
Slip stitch to next st, finish off, leaving long enough tail to sew to body. (*Hint: to stuff tail, try using a thin pen, or even the blunt end of a larger crochet hook to gently push the stuffing into the tail.)

Dachshund’s Face
  • For eyes, cut out 2 ovals from the white felt. Cut 2 circles that are about half the size of the white ovals from the black felt. Glue (Elmer’s glue or fabric glue is just fine) the white ovals to the face first, and then glue the black circles on top, like in photograph.
  • For nose, use embroidery thread to do a satin stitch on the snout.

Aw this is a cute little weiner dog! You did such a nice job crocheting this. My friend's dog looks like this and this might be the perfect gift for her. Thanks for the pattern!

Blanca J Magallanes said...

Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. I'm making it right now for my four years old

Makena Brooks said...

Your picture makes it look so much smaller than it is I started crocheting it and then half way through the body I knew it would be giant but I still kept on crocheting
I just finished row ten.

my mind and its complicated workings said...

I just wanted to say thank you for the pattern. My sister has 2 basset hounds, a dachshund, and a lab. I adapted the colors for the basset hounds and made them the last two years. This year I am adapting it to make the Lab. This pattern has resulted in four years of gifts. By time I am done she will have the whole set. Thanks again!
