Very nice!  Like the houndstooth pattern, very creative.

I love making these miniature dogs!!  I used Lion Brand Jiffy for this one.  

I don't use a pattern. I crochet some simple shapes, brush using a wire brush and sewn together.  I used two shades of gray.  He's about 6 inches from nose to tail.

I have drafted instructions.  They are not complete instructions, but they give you an idea of how to construct the puppy: Fluffy Friend #2.   Thanks for your interest and your wonderful comments.

ZOMG, you made a cute little Cairn terrier!  Anerable! ss Smiley

Wow, that's exactly what it is! (Stated after she did a Google search and looked at pics). Thanks for clearing that up.

All your comments have been most welcome and sincerly appreciated.

Every since I saw this post by wibit (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194965.0) making a cute little fluffy dog has been on my mind.  I recently knit a sweater where I used Bernat Alpaca.  Since I had a little left over I decided now was the time to make my little dog!

He's not perfect, but I think he's really cute!

I think he looks like a Yorkie/Pomeranian mix

He's standing on a 4 inch tile,
and he about 5 inches tall.
This is just the first of what I hope are many more.  I'm off to experiment with other yarns now!

Thanks wibit!  I have much respect for your skills, your imagination and your willingness to share!

Your hooks are fantastic!!

Yes, please, I'd love a tutorial.  I've been looking for afghan hooks and can't find any.  I'd like to try my hand at making one.  I have some nice hardwood dowels that would be perfect for the job.

Thanks for sharing your grandmother's pattern with us.  Such a simple yet beautiful design.  I have a lot of rice paper and think that it is just too beautiful to hide its design.  When I saw this butterfly I knew immediately that I wanted to use the paper for this project.  I took your template and brought it into my graphics program and duplicated the design I liked best.  I then made it into different sizes for my different papers.

The one sitting on top of the quarter is 2 inches, then 3 inches then 5 1/2 inches.  I cut all of them from the same piece of paper (which they are sitting on top of).  I've attached the link to the patterns if anyone is interested (PDF file):  Folded Butterfly Template

so cool
what kind of hook did u use
a regular one or a double sided one  Huh
i rlly want 2 try now  Grin

I used a regular hook.  The trick is carrying the yarn and not pulling it too tight as you go.

I saw the TapestryCrochet.com site and decided I had to give it a try.  I also wanted to do something original, so I designed a star.  I am very happy with the results, (although I was working with whatever yarn I had on hand and the colors aren't the best combination).  I may do a little more to finish off the blanket- it's a gift for my pregnant neice (for her baby).  It measures about 27 inches square.

Shot of the blanket
star from pattern                                                     star (freeformed)

The whole thing is done in single crochet (size K hook) and I created this grid and arranged the little tile-like shapes to create the pattern.  I use a graphics program called Canvas, which allows me to create layers.  I put the grid in one layer and the little tiles in another.  When I'm done I print and stitch!

(If you save the image you will have the full size grid).

Thanks for looking... Grin

I love your fish!  You did a fantastic job!  The mouth, the fins...perfecto!  Please let us know if it's your own design or if you used a pattern.  Cheesy

Thanks for the compliments... Grin.  This is my own design.  I did this out of my head.  I hardly ever use a pattern for anything anymore.  I've been crocheting for YEARS!!
