Party Pug – amigurumi dog
Here's a pattern for all you dog-lovers, a perfect pooch complete with party hat!
Some dogs fetch sticks and others bury bones, and a few don hats and frequent nightclubs. Party Pug falls into this latter camp, a fun-loving paw-ty boy with an uncanny ability to sniff out a good time. Be sure to keep on top of all his separate pieces to avoid an unpicking atrocity, and remember to stuff as you go.
