Duke the Dog Crochet Amigurumi Pattern
Duke is cuddly and soft with a round belly and adorable tongue hanging out. :-)
This is exclusively available as a PDF pattern, delivered instantly. No shipping costs and no waiting! (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
He measures about 13 inches tall when completed with a worsted weight yarn.
Want a bigger or smaller dog? Use thicker or thinner yarn!
Duke is a beginner level pattern, but it does use a couple of skills that are best tackled if you've already made one or two amigurumi.
These are the skills you'll need. . .
- single crochet
- attaching limbs and other parts
- crocheting standing legs
The trickiest part is the rounded belly and shaped feet. It's not hard - but you have to count a lot of stitches in those sections which means you can't do it on autopilot. :-)
Don't worry - the PDF pattern has links to videos teaching you all the skills you'll need! And it contains progress photos of all the important steps, so you won’t get lost. :-)
You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.
You'll need. . .
- crochet hook (size determined by yarn)
- two colors of worsted weight yarn - less than a skein of each. The sample uses Caron Simply Soft Tweeds in Off-White for the dog body, and a tiny bit of baby pink for the tongue.
- one pair of 12 mm black craft eyes
- 18 mm black triangle nose
- polyester stuffing
- tapestry needle
- locking stitch markers (to count stitches and rounds)

If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.
For example, if you want to hire someone to help you crochet, or to do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-) firstname.lastname@example.org
