Crochet your very own Scottie Dog Brooch

So I've down-sized my little Scottie Dog pattern.

You see, I had some peeps asking me for something a bit smaller.
They wanted a doggie who was just a tad more lapel/ cardigan/ coat/ hat/ bag friendly.

And so, may I present to you: The Scottie Brooch Pattern.



Ok, same as before- you need to make 2 of each and single crochet them together. Stuff lightly and add a brooch pin to the back.
Job done. Be ready to receive your compliments.

You'll need:

Yarn and hook to match (I used Rico Creative Cotton and a 4mm hook)

Polyester toy filling

A cute ribbon for the neck (mine measured 6mm wide)


Stitches and Abbreviations:

I use US terms, so single crochet= same as UK double crochet here.

Chain (ch)

Single crochet (sc)

Stitches (sts)

Single Crochet 2 Together (sc2tog)

 

To single crochet 2 together:

Insert hook into next stitch.

Yarn over, pull up a loop. (2 loops on hook)

Insert hook into next stitch.

Yarn over, pull up a loop (3 loops on hook)

Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.



Pattern (make 2)

[At the end of every row, chain 1 and turn.]

1. Ch 8

2. Sc 7, 2scs in next st (9 sts)

3. Sc 7 (7)

4-7. Sc 5 (5)

8. Sc 5, ch 2 (7)

9. Sc 6, 2scs in next st, ch 2 (10)

10. Sc 10. Fasten off

Head

Turn. Attach new yarn to hook.

In 6th chain from left side and working right-left:

11. Sc 5 (5)

12. Sc2tog, sc 3, ch 1 (5)

13. Sc 4

14. Sc 4

Now finish off and wear your doggy brooch with pride! 




Don't forget to attach a natty ribbon to its neck to finish off your ensemble perfectly.

Enjoy making!
