Amigurumi Chihuahua Free Pattern

I have recently received several inquiries about the pattern that I used to crochet this amigurumi Chihuahua.  Unfortunately the link I posted to the free pattern no longer works, which I didn't realize until now.  The pattern at the link I provided was not an original pattern, but a translation of a free Japanese pattern found on the internet.  So for those interested I am posting the pattern here.





As you can see, my version is a little different from the picture on the pattern, but the things I eliminated are in the pattern so it's your choice of how you want to make yours!

  2. I love this pattern. I made it for a Christmas present. I took rows 7-9 out of the ears to make them a little shorter. It turned out very cute.

  4. Anonymous,
    There really isn't a specific rule as to when to stuff and often it differs from piece to piece.
    I usually don't stuff until I'm almost done because the stuffing can get caught in my stitches and overall makes the piece harder to work with. However, this isn't always practical because if it's a larger piece with a small opening , waiting until the end can make it very difficult to stuff. So bottom line is that you really just use your own judgment as to which works best for you.

    There are a couple of techniques for closing the hole in your piece after stuffing. The first technique is to do a round of 'decreases' and then finish by joining with a slip stitch. The other method, which is the one I use the most is to finished the last round off leaving a long 'tail' on your yarn. Thread this 'tail' through a needle and run the needle through the front loop of each stitch around. Then pull the yarn tight and this will close the hole. Both of these techniques work well so it's a matter of which one you prefer. I hope this helped answer your questions. Let me know if I can be of further help and I'd love to see a picture of your finished creation!
