Schnuffi - The Litte French Dog (Crochet Pattern)

Thursday 26 February 2015

My newest addition to my crochet pattern is this cute little french dog, called Schnuffi. Do you know the series about Miffy the rabbit?  Well she has a little dog, and her name is Schnuffi in the German version. Elise loves the show and really wanted to have her own Schnuffi.

I don't think they look much alike, but that wasn't my goal anyway.I really love the small hat and scarf that can be taken off, which Elise loves to do. So a little hint: make sure the ears are sewn on really tightly, otherwise they might come off with the hat :)

I also found out, that it's much easier to sew the hand and feet on, when they are still unfinished and hollow. With such projects as this one, it's also practical to use both ends of your yarn, if you don't have two skeins. For example, I still had not finished the green part of the body when I started making hands and feet. 

And my newest discovery? Working in the inside loop of a half-double-crochet makes a nice illusion of a sleeve :)

  1. I love this little guy...I followed your colors pretty closely for my first one. I want to try another in French Marcel Marceau and white striped shirt and a black beanie!
