My grandmothers birthday is tomorrow. And she loves pugs. She had one as a girl and when my dad was a kid as well. She was supposed to receive this on Friday but she is too sick so She will be getting it on Tuesday hopefully. I love how cute this came out! I made it all on my own. I might make her another in all black just to check my notes over.
How'd I do?

Okies everyone here is the pattern. I have not heard back from my last tester yet but it's been several days and she has a family so I assume she is busy. I will edit the pattern as needed with any fixes. Please post pictures if you make one of these guys!

Tiny Pug Crochet Pattern

Worsted weight yarn (I used simply soft)
Crochet Hooks in size H and E
Amigurumi eyes (or buttons)
Scraps of Black Felt
Pink embroidery Floss
6 Inch Pipe Cleaner
Embriodery needle
Black thread
Darning needle
Pattern pieces for eye and mouth color:

The Head and Body are made using the Magic Adjustable ring. If you do not wish to do this simply Chain 2 and make the amount of single crochets into the second stitch instead of the ring.

With H hook
Using magic Ring method Single Crochet 5 Times into ring, Pull tail and join with a slip stitch. (5 sc)
2.) 2 single crochet in each stitch, repeat around. (10 sc)

5.) Repeat row 4, 3 times. (15 sc per round)
6.) *single crochet 2 together, 1 Single crochet in next stitch. Repeat from * around. (10 sc)
7.) Single crochet 2 together around. ( 5 sc) follow directions for eyes:
Cut out 2 felt pieces using pattern, Poke hole in eye pieces to insert eyes. If using buttons sew them on at this point. Attach to head so stitches and such are on inside of head. Stuff then continue.
8.) Single crochet 2 together 2 times, Slip stitch in next stitch then fasten off leaving tail about 8 inches for attaching body parts.

4.)   1 Single Crochet in each stitch around. (13 sc)
5.)   repeat row 4, 7 times. (13 sc per round)
6.)   * single crochet 2 together, then in each of next 3 stitches single crochet 1 time, Repeat from * around. In reaminging stitch single crochet instead of single crocheting 2 together. ( 10 sc)

With H Hook
Chain 1, Hold pipe cleaner next to hook And single crochet around it  12 times. Chain 1 and fasten off. Bend pipe cleaner to curl tail. Clip any exposed pipe cleaner and bend under to hide it.

To assemble cut out nose piece and embroider nose on near top. Then stitch to head with thread in a similar color.
Fold last two rows of ears down, Then using tail from top weave through till even with this fold, and sew top of ears to hold fold. Then sew ears to head.
Stuff feet and attach to bottom on body using tail.
Attach tail to body with curl over the rear.

Add a collar or leave as is and you have your own pug!

If you are using a thicker yarn shorten your number of rows in everything except the tail and ears. Legs should be 4 repeats and body only 3.

I've wanted a pug for years and I haven't been able to get one yet, so maybe I'll make one. Awesome idea, thanks!

Oh I love it!  I had a pug growing up .. I want another one so badly but they're so expensive and I have a thing against getting dogs from breeders. Sad

Will swap anything crocheted for a Poppet!
