Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Welcome to my blog. I hope to blog about my knitting and crocheting as well as everyday life. The patterns that I post are original and as such there is copyright on them. When they are based on another pattern there is a link to the pattern.

My husband and I adopted a beautiful dog named Leo. He is a dachshund and absolutely adorable! we adopted him on June 23, 2010 and he has become the love of our lives.

I love to share patterns that I find along the way or to talk about some of the neatest designers that are out there today, so I love to post links to the designs or the designers.

So grab a cup a and sit and enjoy the blog.

Well as you know I am a sucker for anything Dachshund, especially since we got Leo.

I found some adorable patterns for my favorite dog, all due to having Leo...lol. So here are some for my favorites, some are free and some are available for purchase. They could be knitted or crocheted...so here we go!

AmiDogs Dachshund amigurumi crochet pattern

You can get the pattern individually ($5.00) or as part of series called AmiDogs Set 1 amigurumi crochet patterns included in this set are Shiba Inu, Labrador, Dachshund patterns.


Dachshund Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Tofu the Gentle Dachshund
This is a knit pattern by Rebecca Danger. It is available on both Etsy and *Ravelry.  The pattern is available for $6.00 on both sites.

Meet Tofu the Gentle Dachshund! This new knitting pattern from Danger Crafts will show you how to knit Tofu, the cutie pie Doxie. Tofu is a fast, super satisfying project that knits up easily on many yarn/needle combinations. Since it doesn't take much yarn to knit a Tofu, this is a great stash busting project for all those times you've bought just 1 or 2 balls because something was pretty. Just like Dachshunds themselves, this pattern is very addicting and once you knit one Tofu, you will find you want to knit an entire Dachshund family!





Perfect Pups, Dachshund
This is another one of Alan Dart's designs. As you know I love Alan's designs as he has great detail with them all. Well I had to get this one and I was able to get a yarn kit from Knitting, Beads and Other Things. Carol even customized the colors to match Leo! What awesome customer service. It can be quite difficult to get the yarn for Alan's designs so it is good to know I can order from her when I need to. this pattern was original published by Sirdar, the leaflet is no longer in print however you can get the pattern from Alan on his website. The pattern has been sold on eBay at some pretty outrageous prices.


8. Werner the Weiner Dog

Amigurumi Super Happy Crochet Cute-Werner the Wiener Dog
Werner is available only in the Amigurumi Super Happy Crochet Cute, at Amazon and Chapters. Check it out. Her designs are awesome!




Chico the Dachshund

To cute! From the website...he is $4.50. He actually crocheted from Bernat Softee Chunky.
You will get Chico the Dachshund pattern to make your very own Dachshund. For Dachshund lovers, this is the purrfect collectible. He stands three inches tall and six inches from nose to tail.
Even though they are classified as a Hound, Dachshunds are most like a terrier. It is said that they are half a dog high and two dogs long. They were originally bred for scenting, chasing, and flushing badgers. They love to chase and fetch. Dachshunds can be challenging to train as they are stubborn or strong-willed, so a patient gentle hand is required. They make excellent watchdogs as their bark is quite loud. They love to dig and to chase small birds, animals and tennis balls with great perseverance. Dachshund's temperament is individual from dog to dog, this means that they may not be good with children and could bite an unknown child.
 


10: Dachshund Portrait Cloth

Amigurumi Wiener Dog
Dachshund Balloon Animal
Lion Brand Yarns has 2 free Patterns available. One is crocheted, Amigurumi Wiener Dog  the other is knit and quite cute, called Dachshund Balloon Animal. Both are quite cute and simple. The dachshund balloon animal is an easy knit but frustrating to tie, so I am going to rework the design to make it simpler to tie together.  Wish me luck on it.

The Original Custom-Fit Dog Sweater 

Dachshund in The Original Custom-Fit Dog Sweater knit out of Noro Kureyon





The Original Custom-Fit Dog Sweater is well worth a mention. If you have difficulties finding a dog sweater that fits your dog in all areas this pattern is a big help.

This pattern is the result of a several years' search for a well-fitting sweater for our 68-pound short-haired Australian shepherd/beagle mix. I ran into two major difficulties with the dog sweater patterns I was able to find: either the pattern was sized only for small dogs, or if it did come in sizes for larger dogs, the neck and chest measurements (the two usual measurements one is asked to take) didn't match our dog's. If I made it to fit her chest, the neck was droopy, and the dog's movement would pull it down around her shoulders. Additionally, none of the patterns I found provided what I felt was sufficient protection for our dog against the snow and wind of a Central New York winter. So, I decided to make my own pattern and developed the following sweater to be worn by our "snow puppy" in those harsh conditions.

All comments are welcome! Please let me about your success or problems in using this pattern, which was revised about 6 months after its initial publication because of good feedback from the net. Please include your dog's breed and neck & chest measurements as this will help determine how robust the pattern really is. I can be reached via email at ebozak@cs.oswego.edu or by snailmail at 103 E. Sixth St., Oswego, NY 13126.
