This is the pattern for a dog potholder. I do have this pattern available for free on my website if you would prefer that option. The link is down below, but I’ve made it available for people to download as well for $1 on Ravelry.

There is also a video tutorial for the pattern available on my YouTube channel at Crochet Dog Potholder Tutorial.

I’ve used 8 ply wool and a 2.5mm crochet hook but you can use different sizes depending on what you’re most comfortable with.

  • Brown for the dog’s head (darker brown wool for the ears if desired), pink for the tongue, white and black cotton or wool, I used 8 ply wool which is light worsted in the US and double knitting in the UK. (Don’t use synthetic wool as it would melt).

  • A crochet hook, I used a 2.5mm hook.

  • Scissors.

  • Thread to sew together.

  • Sewing needle.

  • Darning needle to weave in ends.

  • Grey embroidery cotton to sew on the dots.

  • Darker pink cotton or wool for the tongue marking if desired.
