Moss the Puppy Dog as reached the age where he needs a forever home and hopes to find one with you. With his droopy ears, patch over one eye, and his fabulous paw prints, he measures approximately 7 – 8” (17 – 20cm), and is just waiting to be your friend. Suitable for an intermediate crocheter, the pattern is made in a spiral of continuous rounds, and uses a variety of stitches and techniques which are clearly explained in the numerous diagrams and photos. Moss can be poseable or non-poseable – the choice is yours. Moss can be created using any DK yarn, but why not try our own awarding winning Deramores Studio DK, a beautifully soft acrylic yarn with anti-pilling technology. Puppies come in all shades, and we think Moss would look fabulous crocheted in Oatmeal and Chocolate. Please be aware that Studio DK is a 100g ball, so you will have some yarn left over – which you put towards creating another of Kate’s fabulous designs! To complete your puppy you will need: 1 x 100g balls of Main Shade DK yarn 1 x 50g ball of Contrast Shade DK yarn 3.5mm (USE/4) crochet hook 3.25mm (US D/3) crochet hook for the crocheted eyes option Small amount of yarn for crocheted eyes option Small amount of yarn for nose 2 x 20mm safety eyes - though please note that Kate handpainted the safety eyes in the illustration for extra appeal - they are usually either a plain black or 'googly' Stuffing Yarn needle Stitch markers Please note: Moss is crocheted using UK terminology.
