Crochet Dog Potholder

Crochet Dog Potholder
Crochet Dog Potholder

"Here is a crochet dog potholder pattern. I used 8 ply wool, which is light worsted in the US. Be careful not to use synthetic wool as it would melt. I used brown, and darker brown for the ears, pink for the tongue and white and black. I used a 2.5mm crochet hook but you could use what you're most comfortable with. You will also need scissors, thread, a sewing needle and a darning needle. There's also a free video tutorial for this pattern available as well."

Assembly

Weave in ends. Stitch inner eye to outer eye. Stitch nose onto muzzle. Embroider six dots to each side of muzzle. Sew the tongue marking onto the tongue. Attach the tongue to the chin stitching just along the top. Sew the face marking onto the head. Attach the chin to the head near the bottom of the head. Sew the muzzle onto the head over the top of the face marking and chin. Stitch the eyes to the head where shown. Attach the ears to the head. And there’s the finished crochet dog potholder. I hope that you’ve enjoyed making it.

Truly a labor of love if you make this Dog Potholder. Usually potholders are simply square and done in very simple stitches but this dog will require time and effort.

This Crochet Dog Potholder is so cute! I like that it is done in cotton yarn. The written pattern would be much easy to read if it was spaced out somewhat. It all runs together, making it a little hard to read. Other then that it sounds like it will turn out nicely. Love the little tongue. Thank you for sharing this free crochet potholder pattern.

Wow, this is just so clever! Weve had a few dogs that look like this Potholder Pup. The best thing about this project is that even a guy wouldnt shy away from having it in his kitchen. Id love to see this project in different dog breedstheyd make a cute collection to hang on the wall even if theyre never used as actual kitchen accessories.
