Hello all! My apologies for going AWOL for over a week. School got me down but I’m over it now and back to daily blog posts. The winner of my first giveaway, Helen, suggested I design an amigurumi dachshund. This weekend I finished him! I’ll admit I was worried when I first sewed the head to the body and he looked more like a duck than a dachshund, but once I added his ears and limbs he turned out to be the most realistic amigurumi I think I’ve ever crocheted.
I used KnitPicks CotLin DK weight yarn (because I happened to already have the perfect dachshund colours in my yarn stash) and a 3.25 mm crochet hook. The pattern still needs to be written up but it’s coming soon!
