Skill Level: easy

Finished size: 9″ tall in sitting position

Materials

  • Velvet yarn (approx: 500 yards total). Brown color 400yds, Cream color 100yds  (Scroll down & read all about the yarn suggestions) 
  • Small amount of yarn in brown color
  • US H-8, 5mm crochet hook
  • Safety eyes (12 mm)
  • Fiberfil
  • Stitch markers and pins
  • Tapestry needle for weaving ends.

The velvet yarn I used for this pattern.
This yarn I ordered from eBay, It’s not from a popular brand.

Yarn suggestion
When I checked the gauge with my Crochet Hook Gauge ruler, My gauge swatch (4” x 4”) with H-8, 5mm crochet hook was 16 sc x 16 rows. It’s similar to the Bernat Baby Velvet Yarn. I think Bernat Baby Velvet Yarn is a perfect yarn than Vel-Luxe yarn on the Lion Brand website and Bernat Velvet yarn.

Gauge: 16 sc x 16 rows = (4” x 4”) with H-8, 5mm crochet hook. 

Abbreviations

  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • hdc = half double crochet

Notes:

  • Do not join after each round. Always attach the stitch markers on first st in each round.

  • Other parts are worked separately.
  • Before starting body part you need to finish attaching eyes, snout and ears to head.
