Crocheting Amigurumi dogs and cats
Basically, Amigurumis are small stuffed animals, mostly in the form of animals, which actually come from Japan - but the sweet trend did not take long to gain a foothold in Europe and in the world. If you want to crochet an Amigurumi dog, you can make it for many different things, be it as a little lucky charm for your keychain, as a cuddly toy for your kids or as a great homemade gift for a loved one.
In order that you as a beginner also have no problems with the implementation, you will find not only simple crochet patterns on our portal, but also the matching step by step instructions. This way, you can start right away and always know what to do if you encounter a problem during the process. Of course we also have patterns for those who are already better at crocheting Amigurumis. So feel free to have a look around and find the right needlework project for you - we wish you a lot of fun!

Whether with collar, floppy ears, or spotted fur - you can crochet an Amigurumi dog in many different variations. First choose a suitable tutorial from our selection on Crazypatterns, have a look at the materials and techniques you need and maybe choose some other manuals that you like as well. Then decide on your perfect Amigurumi dog and get started! Since our crochet patterns are always illustrated and contain many descriptive texts, even beginners can quickly achieve their first successes - and if something goes wrong, just turn back a few pages and correct the mistake.
Crocheting an Amigurumi dog - you should keep this in mind
You would like to crochet an Amigurumi dog and don't know which of our crochet tutorials is the right one for you? Don't worry, concerning the degree of difficulty there are no big difficulties waiting for you when crocheting Amigurumis and many patterns are very similar in their basics. So feel free to browse through our selection at your leisure and choose the pattern that suits you best. But a little preparation doesn't hurt - especially some different crochet hooks and of course the right crochet yarn are important, but also possible accessories like safety eyes or other useful tools should be ready in advance.
If you have chosen a crochet pattern for the Amigurumi dog, the procedure often looks as follows: First you start with the body of the dog, which is crocheted in one piece. Only then follow all other parts, such as muzzle, whiskers, floppy ears, tail or legs and paws. You have to attach these afterwards, so it is important that you know a little bit about sewing. If you haven't had any experience with this yet, this is no problem - our manuals will help you with every step.
Which materials do you need for a crocheted Amigurumi dog?
Clearly, without crochet yarn and crochet hooks nothing works. In your selected tutorial you will find a recommendation for the appropriate needle sizes and a few suggestions for colour combinations - but of course it's up to you whether you want to use them or not. Crochet your dog in the classic way in brown, black or white, give him a spotted pattern or make him colourful. It is also worthwhile to have some practical tools ready before you start crocheting, especially scissors and filling wool. For example, scissors can be used to cut the threads quickly and easily, while the filling wool gives your crocheted Amigurumi dog the necessary volume.
The right crocheting techniques for an Amigurumi dog
Are you not sure if you even have the know-how to crochet an Amigurumi dog? Here we can reassure you, because most Amigurumis are comparatively easy to do and do not require advanced crocheting skills. Nevertheless, it does not hurt of course if you already know a little bit about crocheting and sewing. Especially the following techniques are used for crocheting Amigurumis:
Single (US: double) crochet stitches
Increasing number of stitches
Decreasing number of stitches
Sewing thread ends and sewing on parts
If you still can't make any progress or if you encounter a problem with crocheting that even our patterns can't help you with, you are welcome to visit our forum. Many helpful members of our community are waiting for you there, exchanging ideas and ready to share their tips and tricks with you.
