So i found a pattern book and attempted to make a cutie dog.  Easy enough, no problem.  But go figure, i made 3 seperate 'muzzles' and none of them looked like the photo!  And honestly, it wasn't anything i was doing wrong!
So what to do with half a head and an f'd up muzzle?  This:




I had used a different head shape than the pattern, and just extended it down some. The whole thing was done in 3 pieces, the muzzle, body/leg, and the other leg.  

Materials:

g hook

ww yarn ( i used Vannas Choice in beige, red heart soft in green, and red heart white)

Head/Body:

4 sc in a ring

rd1: 2 sc in each sc around (8 sc)

rd2: 2 sc in each sc around (16 sc)

rd3: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (24 sc)

rd4-9: sc in each sc around (24 sc)

rd10: sc2tog over first 2 sc, sc in next 3 sc around (20 sc)

rd11-14: sc in each sc around (20 sc)

rd15: sc in next 6 sc, fold piece in half, sl st in middle sc to join the two sides, sc around  the new leg (12 sc)

rd16-19: sc in each sc around (12 sc)

rd20: change color to green, sc in next 12 sc (12 sc)

rd21: sc in next 2 sc, 2sc in next 4 sc, sc in last 6 sc (16 sc)

rd22: sc in next 3 sc, (2sc in next, sc) 3 times, sc in last 7 sc (19 sc)

rd23 & 24: sc in each sc around (19 sc)

rd25: In Back Loop Only, sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc around

rd26: sc2tog, sc in next sc around

rd27: sc2tog around, fasten off

Second Leg:

Join beige yarn with a sl st at the crotch, sc around

Repeat rds 16-27.

Nose:

with white, 5 sc in a ring

rd1: 2 sc in each sc around (10 sc)

rd2: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (15 sc)

rd3: sc in each sc around (15 sc)

fasten off.

Finishing/notes:

I stuffed the body/head thing before i fastened off the first leg, and again before totally finishing the second leg.

Sew the nose on before joining the two sides, and use whatever colors you like for the nose and mouth.



Thanks for looking!!!

That's adorable!  Cheesy I like it and it's probably just as cute or cuter than the dog you were planning to make. So do you think it was a mistake in the pattern?

*snort*

But seriously, I have done that countless times and I always wonder if it is me or if the directions really are fouled up. 

What does the picture of the pattern look like??

LOL!!!  you guys are funny!!!  But yeah, the pattern was the dog from one of the gourmet crochet booklets.  I don't know if there was a mistake in the pattern or the pic, but the muzzle in the photo looked like it had 3 rounds, not two.  That, and i give up pretty quickly if it doesn't match the pic.
