T.V. Puppy

This little guy is a lot of work! Not difficult, but lots of little body parts. Good thing it works up quickly. K1 just loves him and is ready for me to make another one in worsted weight yarn for a bigger size. I like the little one with the soft baby yarn. So soft and cuddly! Ready to make your own? I hope you do and share pictures with me. My crocheted Fiona hat has been such a huge hit, I wanted to do another Adventure Time project for all you fans. You may use my pattern, but please do not sell it as your own or I won't continue offering the patterns for free and if you use any of my patterns, I would appreciate the acknowledgement. I've also included a Scribd link at the end for easy printing or saving, but this is new to me so let me know if it works for you. Thanks!


Adventure Time
T.V. Puppy
Yarn: I used left over baby yarn in light purple, white, black, yellow, pink and mint green. You only need small amounts for each. You can make T.V. a larger size by using worsted weight yarn with the appropriate hook. (Note: you most likely won’t be able to find black in baby yarn. Use Caron Simple Soft, or similar, instead.)
Hook: F if you are using baby yarn, G or H if you are using worsted weight (H if you crochet tightly)
Other supplies: needle, small amount of fiberfill for stuffing, contrasting yarn for embroidering (optional)

Special Note: Because of the striping, you cannot work this project in the typical rounds of amigurumi. You must finish off each round on the body to match up the lines, as indicated in the pattern.
