How much is that doggy?

Date: 31st March 2024 | Category:


Perfect for dog lovers or those who’d prefer a low-maintenance pooch, Crochet Your Own Dog (£19.99, Zakka Workshop) features 14 amigurumi small dog breeds that you can crochet and then ‘groom’ to create a realistic fluffy finish. These nearly life-size canine dogs created by Japanese designer Mieko Shindo include popular breeds such as a poodle, Shih Tzu, Yorkie and Pomeranian, and the book includes step-by-step photos for each project, plus written instructions and charts (US terms).

To achieve the realistic furry finish you’ll learn how to use Mieko’s unique yarn grafting method. You can use real dog grooming brushes to create the authentic look and feel of your pampered pet’s coat, and give it a trim too!

This fun book is perfect for fans of pups and novelty crochet and is published on 4 March.
