One skein Red Heart Super Saver in Buff (this uses about half a skein)
Small amount of Red Heart Super Saver in Coffee
Crochet hook size G or H (depending on your tension)
Tapestry needle
Polyfil or other stuffing
Black embroidery thread
Embroidery needle
Small amount of black and white felt (for eyes)

Each part of this pattern is worked in the round. It is your choice whether to join your rounds or not. ** indicates to repeat pattern for entire row.

Pug’s Body
Row 1: Ch 2, 6sc in 1st ch (6 sts)
Row 2: 2sc in each st around (12 sts)
Row 3: *sc, 2sc in next st* around (18 sts)
Row 4: *sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in 3rd st* (24 sts)
Row 5: *sc in next 3 sts, 2sc in 4th st* (30 sts)
Row 6: *sc in next 4 sts, 2sc in 5th st* (36 sts)

Rows 8-29: sc around (42 sts)
Row 30: *sc in next 5sts, sc2tog* (36 sts)
Row 31: *sc in next 4 sts, sc2tog* (30 sts) *now would be a good time to start stuffing!
Row 32: *sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog* (24 sts)
Row 33: *sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog* (18 sts)
Row 34: *sc, sc2tog* (12 sts)
Row 35: sc2tog around (6 sts)
Finish off, use tapestry needle to weave tail through remaining stitches and pull closed. Hide tail by sewing into surrounding stitches.

Pug’s Head (in “Buff”)
Row 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 1st ch. (6 sts)
Row 2: 2sc in each st around (12 sts)
Row 3: *sc, 2sc in next st* (18 sts)
Row 4: *sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in 3rd st* (24 sts)
Row 5: *sc in next 3 sts, 2sc in 4th st* (30 sts)
Row 6: *sc in next 4 sts, 2sc in 5th st* (36 sts)
Rows 7-14: sc around (36 sts)
Row 15: *sc in next 4 sts, sc2tog* (30 sts)
Row 16: sc around
Finish off, leaving a long enough tail to sew to body.
*Tip: When sewing to body, spread neck out so it blends into the body, and sew as close to the front of body as possible (so there’s no “lump” below the neck).

Pug’s Front Legs (Make 2, in “Buff”)
Row 1: Ch 2, 6sc in 1st ch. (6 sts)
Row 2: 2sc in each st around. (12 sts)
Rows 3-13: sc around.
Finish off, leaving tail long enough to sew to body.

Pug’s Back Legs (Make 2, in “Buff”)
Row 1: Ch 2, 6sc in 1st ch. (6 sts)
Row 2: 2sc in each st around. (12 sts)
Rows 3-9: sc around. (12 sts)
Row 10: 2sc in each of first 6 sts, sc in remaining 6 sts. (18 sts)
Rows 11-13: sc around. (18 sts)
Finish off, leaving long enough tail to sew to body.

Pug’s Snout (with “Coffee”)
Row 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 1st ch. (6 sts)
Row 2: 2sc in each st around. (12 sts)
Row 3: *sc, 2sc in next st* (18 sts)
Row 4: sc around. (18 sts)
Finish off, leaving long enough tail to sew to face.
*Tip: when sewing to face, I used just a little bit of stuffing so it would protrude a LITTLE bit. Use black embroidery thread to create a nose and mouth.

Pug’s Ears (Make 2, with “Coffee”)
Row 1: Ch 2, 3sc in first ch. (do not join, this is not done in the round)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, 3 sc across.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, 2sc in first st, sc in 2nd, 2sc in last st (5 sts)
Row 4: Ch 1, turn, 5 sc across.
Finish off, leaving tail to sew to head.

Pug’s Eyes (Make 2, with “Coffee”)
Row 1: Ch 2, 6sc in first ch. (6sts)
Row 2: 2sc in each st around. (12 sts)
Finish off, leaving tail to sew to face.
*Tip: After you sew these to the face slightly above the snout, use two different sized buttons or other small round object to trace a circle on the black and white felt. These will be glued on top of the crocheted circles for the eyes. They can be glued or sewn, but I prefer just using Elmer’s glue (it’s very sturdy if left alone until completely dry).

Pug’s Tail (in “Buff”)
Row 1: Ch 13, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across to end (12 sts)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc across (12 sts)
Row 3: do not ch1, turn, sl st in 1st st, sc across.
Finish off, fold in half (so that top of last row and beginning chain are touching), stitch to body and stitch folded edges together. Tail should curl by itself.
