Little Sausage Dog

I have been meaning to make this little doggie for a long time. I want to find out how to knit a toy all in one piece with no joining and no sewing. I cast-on on Friday night and once I started I couldn’t put it down.

This is a very clever pattern using many knitting techniques.
The finished toy will look up to you with that doggie begging expression, very cute.
I gave the toy four brown paw pads just like Poppy’s.
The finished size is about 13 ½ inches long from the tip of her nose to the tip of her tail. It is only about 5 inches tall from top of the head to the floor.Materials:
* I hand spun the yarn from a mixture of Jacob and Dorset fleece. 6 wraps per inch so it is about chunky weight.
* 12mm dark brown eyes with safety backing and I purchased them from
Knitting needle size: 4.50mm
Pattern: The pattern is called Victoria and you can download it free from
