Some patterns, it seems, have a mind of their own. I had a really cute sketch for this dog. It was a sweet little beagle with floppy ears and spots. Somehow the prototype took on a life of it’s own and decided at some point that it wanted to be a dachshund instead. I obliged because, really, how can you say no to a face like that?? I love that it became what it did. The long body is a prefect size for grasping and the floppy legs give it a real goofy quality.
The pattern comes in two sizes. The above example is in sport weight while a worsted version will give you a bit larger of a dog.
