This .pdf crochet pattern is written in standard American crochet terms. With this very detailed pattern, you can make a realistic miniature Dachshund.

For an experienced crocheter this is an easy pattern, and I always try to write it in a way so beginners can make it too, but it will be a challenge for a beginner.

If you use the recommended yarn, your dog will be 6 inch / 15 cm long and about 4 inch/ 10 cm high.

For this crochet dog you’ll need worsted weight Lètt Lopi yarn and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook. You’ll need two colours of yarn: rust, Lètt Lopi 9427 (1/8 of a 100-yard skein) and black, Lètt Lopi 0059 (1/4). For the eyes I’ve used 8 mm animal safety eyes. You will also need fibrefill, I’ve used wool filling.

The crochet pattern contains
An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal, with instruction images with extra notes next to the text and example pictures at the bottom to help you get everything right. All my patterns are text edited for correct English and have been tested by experienced crocheters before publishing.

Istex Lett lopi. I strongly recommend using a fuzzy yarn because it gives the best result.

Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.
