Hello!  I guess I missed the sock dog trend by a few years but I hope someone can help me.  I am currently making the sock dog in Sock and Glove.  And for the life of me I can't get the head folded the right way! Angry   I have tried and tried and am just totally stumped.  If anyone could help I would be forever grateful.  Also what are the best kinds of socks and gloves used to make the animals?  I got some knit work gloves @ ACE but the knit seems to be too loose.  Thank you all again! Smiley

Pictures of the point you are at might make it easier to provide you with some help.

As to the best kind, magic mini gloves seem to work well as gloves, and for socks, just about anything seems to work.

Hello, as I said in my earlier post I am trying to make the sock dog from the book, Sock and Glove and having absolutely  NO success with the head.  So now I am including pictures of what I am trying (?) to do

Photo 1:  Just the sock head stuffed
Photo 2:  Right and Left corners of the back of the head folded.
Photo 3:  Folding of the Bottom and Top
Photo 4:  Finished Product

As you can see.... not very good.  And as for the nose of the dog. I'm coming up blank. So I'm in a pickle and I hope that someone can help me out.  I appreciate it so much Smiley  Also advice on types of socks and where to get would be ever so helpful.  I am a very beginning crafter but very eager to learn.  Thanks again and have a great day!!

the end you've sewn looks fine (attach your ears where the folded bits stick out a bit).

for the snout, i think you need a bunch more stuffing and then you should be able to fold it up neatly so that it will look like a snout.
