This is Scott Hooper Pattern as a gift to the Crochet Community. Scott ‘s family have given me permission to post this pattern online as a remembrance of the Artist he was. I helped with the pattern so I can assist you in the making of this beautiful doggie.

To avoid seeing the fiberfill, you can use a nylon stocking in the color of your yarn to stuff the fiberfill in. I helped Scott test this pattern and it is a lot of fun to make.

Materials: Worsted weight yarn in following colors: 13 oz. black; 5 oz. rust; Small amounts each: Red; Dark Brown; and White. Polyester fiberfill; 24” ribbon 1/4” in width or 1/2” folded in half lengthwise.. Sizes E, F, and G hooks or sizes needed to obtain gauge.
Finished Size: Approximately 21” long without tail.
Gauges: E hook used for working in tight stitches and spaces only. F hook, 9 sc = 2”; 9 sc rows = 2”; G hook, 4 sc = 1”; 4 sc rows = 1”.
The yardage will depend on your gauge and the type of yarn you use. You will also need some fiberfill.
