You Ain't Nothing But a Hound Dog
She can be a toy or a pyjama case. Either way she will be well loved.
The pattern should work for other chunky yarns with a yardage of about 65 to 70 yds per 100g but you MUST check your tension.
Note that the pattern works on numbers of stitches and rows, so can be used with other yarns to get different sized dogs.
