New Updated Version of this pattern was added 10/16. It includes:

  • 29 new photos, explaining many of the steps involved
  • I have replaced the older 2-piece foot pattern with the newer, easier 1-piece foot used now
  • Made a simpler ‘G’ emblem
  • Streamlined some of the pattern to require less counting.
  • Divided up some of the pattern that had confused some about how many parts to make with which hook size
  • Added a 2nd option for a simpler face smudge so there are not quite so many color changes
  • Added in tips at the end about the changes I make when a 2-colored dog is requested
  • Also added a short color-suggestion list on what colors Bulldogs come in

Uga is probably the most famous Bulldog out there. A well-known symbol of football and The South, he’s a great representative of the breed. Even if you aren’t a Georgia football fan, or a football fan in general, you can’t deny Bulldogs are an imposing and striking breed. You can make Papa Bulldog in white, like old Uga here, or another doggy color or even brindle by choosing an ombre in browns and grays. He features a massive head and a wrinkly face that is a lot of fun to make. Bonus patterns for the kerchief and the Georgia Bulldogs logo.

This pattern uses commonly found Medium Weight Yarn and Stuffing. You will need 2-3 sizes of crochet hooks for the parts, clearly marked. All parts are crocheted, so it is safe for all ages. It is designed so there are minimal ends to sew in.

Pattern is written and arranged for ease of following and natural eye-movement. I recommend that you read all pattern notes and follow the pattern in order so you won’t run into any problems. Crochet help is available through Email.
