AMIGURUMI SCHNAUZER DOG WITH FUR | FREE CROCHET PATTERN

Amigurumi: free crochet pattern for a realistic Schnauzer dog with handmade fur

Meet Winchesterton the Third. He’s a Schnauzer dog.

This doggy wasn’t always this dapper looking, though. He went through an awkward phase while his fur was growing and all the other puppies laughed at him – but more on that later. For now I’ll ask you kindly not to stare, point, or make any hilarious – er, I mean inappropriate– remarks about his abnormal hair growth.

Amigurumi: free crochet pattern for a realistic Schnauzer dog with handmade fur

It would be insensitive, for example, to call him Spaghetti Snout, or Noodle Nose, and would probably him cry. Not that I would know, of course – I’m a nice person who definitely didn’t come up with those mean names.


INTRO


 

This is Part 1 of the pattern.  This part will teach you how to make the dog’s body from start to finish, without any fur. Part 2 will be a tutorial on how to make and attach your very own handmade doggy fur, so keep an eye out for that! (Hit subscribe if you want an email notification!) UPDATE: Part 2 is live!

WHAT TYPE OF YARN SHOULD I USE?

Amigurumi: free crochet pattern for a realistic Schnauzer dog with handmade fur

This is a very important point! You’ll be using some of the same yarn for your dog’s body and his fur, so make sure you start off with the right stuff! To make the fur, you’re going to be brushing the yarn out, so you need yarn that will turn fluffy when you brush it. So cotton or anything stringy wont work! If you unravel a thread of yarn and it separates into strings, it’s not going to turn into fur! You can test by brushing the very tip of a thread of yarn to see if it goes fluffy.

Read “PATTERN DETAILS” below for more info on yarn weight and brand!

 


 

YOUR CROCHETING IS SO NEAT! HOW DO YOU DO IT?

I know right – just try and spot my decreases! Can’t see them? That’s because I use the magical Invisible Decrease and other way cool tricks! You can learn all about the best decreasing method ever, and my other secret techniques at this blog post:

PROJECT #015: 6 SKILLS THAT WILL HELP YOU MASTER AMIGURUMI

 

 


PATTERN DETAILS


SUPPLIES YOU’LL NEED

Yarn in main body colour (I used almost a whole 100g ball of Dark Grey)

Crochet Hook: 3mm (Size 11)

Yarn sewing needle

Sharp scissors

Safety eyes: 21mm

Safety nose: 18mm W x 15mm H

Stuffing

 

NOTE: in Part 2, you’ll need extra supplies for the fur, including:

Yarn in fur colours (I used less than a 100g ball of Light Grey and Beige)

Slicker brush AKA cat brush (one that hasn’t been used on real cats!)

Optional: Felting needle

 

 


CROCHET PATTERN INFORMATION


 

  • Written in US terminology
  • Difficulty: Easy – Intermediate. The body itself is easy, but the fur presents more of a challenge.
  • Necessary Skills: The magic ring, working in the round (in a spiral) and the crochet stitches listed below in abbreviations. The pattern with teach you how to make the fur in Part 2.
  • Yarn Weight: Double Knit (Light Worsted / 8ply/ 11wpi)
  • Yarn Brand: I used a South African brand called Charity. I realize most of you aren’t in SA, so use any brand that will successfully produce fur, as described above in “WHAT TYPE OF YARN SHOULD I USE?”
  • Gauge: Not critical with amigurumi. Using the suggested hook and yarn combo will make a dog about 25cm tall. Your tension should be tight enough to conceal the stuffing inside.
  • Note: The dog’s entire body is inside-out! Turn all pieces inside-out before stuffing them. If you’re doing Invisible Decreases, make sure they’re also inside-out!

 


ABBREVIATIONS


 

  • R = Row
  • CH = Chain
  • ST = Stitch

HEAD


Amigurumi: free crochet pattern for a realistic Schnauzer dog with handmade fur

 

Those rather silly looking tentacles around his nose? I put them there before attaching my safety nose because I was worried the nose’s backing would get in the way later and I wouldn’t be able to get my hook in there to attach fur. Turns out, it was unnecessary, so you don’t have to do it. We’ll get to the fur later, and for now we’ll politely ignore this incredibly silly snout.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS


Note that the limbs and head don’t need to be sewn in the exact same position as stated below. Try pinning your dog together and adjust the features according the the type of character you want to create.


FRONT LEGS


 

Amigurumi: free crochet pattern for a realistic Schnauzer dog with handmade fur

Start with the front legs. Position them on the body at roughly a 45 degree angle between R25-31. Between the highest points, leave 6 sts open across the chest, between the legs.

Sew the legs in place along the edge that you previously sewed closed.


BACK LEGS


 

Amigurumi: free crochet pattern for a realistic Schnauzer dog with handmade fur

Sit the body up, allowing the front legs to support it as they will when the dog is finished. This will help you position the back legs. They should be flush with the ground.

Place them on either side of the body, with the ends aligned with the center of the body and spanning across R7-15. At the highest points there should be 23 sts between the legs, across the dog’s back; and 22 sts between the lowest points.

Sew the legs in place along the edge that you previously sewed closed. Then, sew the last 5 Rounds of the leg to the body as well, along the fold line created.


HEAD


 

Amigurumi: free crochet pattern for a realistic Schnauzer dog with handmade fur

Count 12 Rs from the back of the head, and pin the opening of the back of the neck here.

Count 14 Rs from the front of the head, and pin the opening of the front of the neck here.

Pin all around evenly, checking that the head is facing the desired direction, then sew in place.


EARS


Amigurumi: free crochet pattern for a realistic Schnauzer dog with handmade fur

Position the ears at R11 (counting from the back of the head).

Leave a gap of 7 sts open between them.

Lay the ears flat on the head, pointing towards the back of the head as pictured (without giggling at his abnormal hair growth), and then sew along the free edge where your starting chain is, to attach them.

Amigurumi: free crochet pattern for a realistic Schnauzer dog with handmade fur

They can now be posed as desired.


TAIL


Attach across R4-9, in the center of the body.

    I just love this cutie pie! I’m going to make one for my hubs. We had our Trixie for 18 years and he misses her every day! Thank you for your amazing generosity and incredible patterns. You are a true artist. Hugs

  2. Bernie Wade says:

    Can you please explain what you mean by a ” magic ring ” please. Tia

  3. elizabeth says:

    Is the post for the fur up, I don’t seem to be able to find it

    • Jessie says:

      It will be up next Monday! If you’re subscribed, you’ll get an email notification when it’s posted 🙂

  4. Karen says:

    First time that I will try an amigurumi. But this little one looks like my dog sitter’s dog and this lady is always there for me when needed. So it will be a nice little thank you present for her.
    Thank you for the free pattern. 🙂

    • Jessie says:

      Wow, you’re so brave to try this furry beast as your first amigurumi – good for you! I’m sure your dog sitter will be very happy 😀
      It’s my pleasure, Karen. Let me know how it goes!

  5. bjlandey says:

    I am confused as to why you would turn your work inside out?

    • Jessie says:

      The wrong side will be a little fuzzier than the right side, adding to the furry effect of the dog! Also, the stitches look a little different on the wrong side, so if you want the same look as my little dog in the pictures, you’d have to turn yours inside-out 🙂

      • bjlandey says:

        Thank you. Is your yarn a 4 ply? Or can you give brand names used? He is do darn adorable I cannot wait to start!!

        • Jessie says:

          The yarn is Double Knit (Light Worsted / 8ply/ 11wpi) – you can find that, and more info under “PATTERN DETAILS” in the post. I used a South African brand of yarn called Charity, that’s why I specifically do not mention the brand (I know most readers aren’t in SA), and rather describe the type of yarn you should use.
          I’m so glad you like him! Let me know how it works out 🙂

      • Stephanie says:

        Hi there – just came across this pattern the other day and can’t wait to start it. I do have one question – if you are supposed to turn the work inside out after crocheting – how does that work when on the body and head you start stuffing before you are done with that particular piece? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

        • Jessie says:

          Hey Stephanie 🙂 I’m glad you’re excited to get started! With the head and body, you’ll crochet like normal to start with. After a few rounds you can turn the piece inside out, and just keep crocheting like normal, except now it will seem like you’re working into the “Wrong Side” of the stitches. You’ll still be working into the Right Side, however, but you’ll insert you hook from the inside of the body towards the outside. I hope that makes sense. Let me know if it doesn’t Haha 😉

  6. Linda in Texas says:

    OMG!! He is sooooo cute and lifelike. He looks very much like my little guy.
    I will be making this one 🙂

  7. Cherie says:

    I just love this puppy and cannot wait for part 2 to come out.

  9. Jane Taylor says:

    Is there a way to print this pattern ?

  10. ayala says:

    Wow! It looks grate! What size are the eyes?

    • Jessie says:

      Thanks for asking, I forgot to include that ^_^
      Safety eyes: 18mm
      Safety nose: 18mm W x 15mm H
      I’ve updated the pattern now with that info.

    • Jessie says:

      Ayala, I’m so embarrassed! I gave you the wrong eye size – I’m so sorry!
      They’re supposed to be 21mm, NOT 18mm!
      It’s not the end of the world if you use the 18mm ones though. I picked up the error when I saw a reader’s dog in progress and the eyes looked smaller – BUT! – the dog still looked really cute and at first I wasn’t even sure they were the wrong ones.
      Anyway, sorry about that. Mistakes do happen, unfortunately.

  11. jessie says:

    i like the pattern. i can’t print it so will let it go

    • Jessie says:

      Jessie, the pattern is not designed to be printed. As a very high quality giveaway, it is designed to generate traffic for my website where I work very hard to produce high quality, original content. If you want to print it, you can use a third party such as: http://www.printfriendly.com/
      Thanks for visiting 🙂

  12. Christine says:

    Hi – I would love to try this – my schnauzer is black and silver – is it possible to do that colour or shall I try the colours you state? Thanks

    • Jessie says:

      Hey Christine 🙂 My customer’s schnauzer was in these colours, so that’s the only reason I used them. I know I’d really like to see some different colour combinations, so please use whatever colours your heart desires for your special customized doggy! You can easily substitute the Beige with Silver on your dog.

      • Christine says:

        I would love to try that! not sure what wool to use as I only usually crochet in double knit or 100% cotton – will have to shop around for suitable wool

        • Jessie says:

          You should definitely give it a go, Christine! This particular doggie is crocheted with a double knit acrylic yarn – it doesn’t have to specifically be wool. A yarn made of blended acrylic and wool can work too.

  13. Me encanta. Es como un tipo de perro yorkshire?? Como se hace para ponerle el pelo??
    Voy a suscribirme.
    Besos

  14. Bert says:

    Thank you for the neat pattern. He is so cute.

  15. Linda says:

    About how big is the finished project. Too darn cute!

  16. Matt says:

    First, thank you for the excellent pattern.

    While making him I couldn’t help noticing that you have a small typo in Round 39 of the body. You’ve dropped from 21 sts to 14 sts with the instruction “sc2tog around”. I’m guessing you meant “(sc in next st, sc2tog) around”?

    • Jessie says:

      Hey Matt, I saw your finished pup on Instagram. Such a cutie 🙂

      I’m glad you enjoyed the pattern – it’s my pleasure!

      Thank you for pointing it out that mistake, I appreciate you taking the time to help!

    I love this I am the proud owner of two of these little dogs – I will be trying to do this as they look one pale grey and white the other deep charcoal and white – if it works I will try to send a photo. Thank you for the chance to get a pattern that will allow me to do this.

    • Jessie says:

      You’re welcome Carol. I love seeing the different colour combinations of my patterns so if you manage to get a photo that would be so awesome! Enjoy making your fuzzy little lookalike pups 🙂

  21. Linda says:

    I’m so proud of my first amigurumi, especially since i can’t even pronounce it! Your instructions are perfect and this is so stinkin” cute i just had to attempt it. I’m more of a scarf, cowl, dishcloth sort of gal so this was a real stretch for me. I am in southern California and made this for a Canadian friend. Just thought you’d like to know how far your generosity traveled. I have pictures but am not sure how to get them to you. I will try facebook.

  22. Cathy says:

    Just finished my dog and I love it. Your tutorial is great and easy to follow. Thank you!
    (If you tell me how I can add a picture!)

  23. Susan says:

    Hi. I haven’t started making this adorable schnauzer yet, but can you tell me how big he is?

    • Jessie says:

      You’ll find his size and any other information you might need under “Crochet Pattern Information” in this post.
      He is 25 cm tall 😉

      • Denise Young says:

        Problem is I can’t frind the heading ‘Crochet Pattern Information’ – where is it?

        • Jessie says:

          It’s right after the “Pattern Details” section, before the instructions start 😉

  24. Janice Henderson says:

    Thank you for such a well written and photographed tutorial. I’ve made two schnauzer’s now and am delighted how they’ve turned out. I would love to post a photo of them but I’m not sure how to.

  25. Barbara says:

    What a terrific little dog, I am reasonably new to amigurumi but would live to make this, can you tell me when and how you attach the safety eyes etc, and does it need something to reinforce at the back of the crochet.

    • Jessie says:

      I’m glad you like the pup, Barbara! 🙂 The eyes and nose should be attached just before you start stuffing the head – while there’s still space to get your hands inside the head. Safety eyes and noses come with a stopper that you push onto the back when you attach them (like an earring with a butterfly). The stopper locks in place and wont come off, making them safe.

  26. Sarah says:

    Hello Jessie, I was just wondering there did you get your safety nose from.

  27. Sarah says:

    Hello. I was wondering where did you get the safety nose from?

    • Jessie says:

      Hey Sarah! I got mine from a yarn shop. I always find them in any fabric/yarn/craft shop or haberdashery that has sells buttons (they’re usually kept in the same section as buttons). You can also order them online from sites like ebay. I hope that helps!

  28. Sharon says:

    Thankyou very much for this pattern…. Just love him, fantastic job I will give it a go.

    • Jessie says:

      You’re welcome Sharon, I’m glad you’ve found it useful! Good luck and I hope you enjoy making your little dog 🙂

  29. Alessandra says:

    Thank you! I really love this project and I’ m going to try it as soon as possible!
    Thanks again, greetings from Italy ?

    • Jessie says:

      Hello Alessandra all the way in Italy! I’m very happy to hear you like the project and I hope you enjoy making your own little dog!

  30. Claudia says:

    Lo explicas todo muy bien ya solo me falta unirlo para ponerle los detalles

  32. Ceren says:

    Here is my dog thanks to you <3 [IMG]http://i66.tinypic.com/2ls8c9f.jpg[/IMG] It was really challenging for me but finally i did it. I learned making fur and felting with you! Million thanks (again) and hugs for you! I am so grateful for this amazing pattern :*

    • Jessie says:

      Ceren, your doggie came out really cute! You did a great job and I love how his hair came out all curly! Thanks for sharing your picture. I’m so glad you enjoyed the tutorial. Hugs back!

    • Caryn says:

      Your pup turned out so Cute! Great job!!!

  33. Liz Hart says:

    I am very new to crochet and had only made a granny square blanket and a snuggle sack before seeing your excellent tutorial. I made my schnauzer and am very pleased with the result. I posted a photo to a facebook page that I follow and I am amazed at the response (3.5k likes so far!) Many people asked for the pattern, which I have shared. Thank you so much for making this project so easy with your detailed instructions and photos.

    • Jessie says:

      Liz, I’m so glad you found the pattern useful and easy to follow! Thanks for sharing it with your fellow crocheters, I really appreciate the exposure and I’m very happy to hear that it got a lot of attention – you must’ve done a great job with your pup! Thanks for popping in 🙂

    Beautiful!

    Looking for a papillon crochet dog pattern

  36. Louise Barton says:

    Loved this pattern. Had fun doing it. Just finished the body and want to start the fur but… I am concerned about the size of the project and will it actually stand up. The head seems large. Can you tell what the approximate dimensions should be for each body part.

    • Jessie says:

      Sorry Louise, I didn’t measure the body parts. The head is disproportionately large (compared to a real dog) and is almost the same size as the body. The finished size of the dog is about 25 cm tall, if that helps at all with your estimations. The dog won’t stand up, as it is designed in a sitting position, and it will definitely sit up if the pieces are positioned correctly. Pin all the pieces in position before you sew the dog together, and adjust the limbs to support the body. I hope that helps!

      • Louise says:

        I did mean sitting. I used a light worsted, 3 mm hook. body is about 25cm and head is about 21cm. It just seems top heavy. I have pinned it. I will play with the legs placement some more and actually attach (not just pin) the head and see how I make out. thanks

        • Jessie says:

          I hope it works out! Let me know?

          • Knit2purl says:

            The pattern is amazing!! We just lost one of our girls and this is the perfect memorial. In the pattern you say to use 3mm/ size 11 hook. Would you elaborate please. Thanks in advance.

          • Jessie says:

            Sorry for your loss! A 3mm hook is metric. In Canada/UK sizes it’s called 11. In US sizes it’s called C/2. Enjoy the project!

  37. TigerKim says:

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful pattern free with the great photos. I should be able to turn this into a Scottie with black, very dark brown and very dark grey yarn. This is a terrific design.

  39. Miranda says:

    It’s so beautyfull, oh! I love it, it looks just like my dog. I will make it!

    • Jessie says:

      I’m so glad you like it Miranda, and I hope you enjoy making a little look-alike of your dog!

  40. Seth says:

    Oh my god, this is so cute! Thank you so much for this pattern. I plan to make this for my dad. His buddy (and my first ever pet), a miniature Schnauzer, passed away from old age a fee months ago, and I know my dad misses him. I think this would be a nice present for him.

    • Jessie says:

      That sounds lovely Seth, I’m sure your Dad will appreciate that! You’re welcome and I hope you enjoy making your doggie 🙂

  41. Roberta (Bobbie) McCord says:

    I am so impressed with this pattern! I’m almost ashamed to tell you I was so eager to make a Schnauzer for my youngest sister that I purchased a pattern. It’s not anywhere near as detailed or helpful​ as your pattern!! So, thanks bunches!! I definitely will be looking at your premium patterns when payday gets here.
    I do have one question… What is the reason for turning the body parts inside out? This is the first amigurumi pattern I’ve seen that has that instruction… so I’m curious.

    Hugs,
    Bobbie McCord

    • Jessie says:

      Thanks for getting in touch Bobbie 🙂 I’m so happy to hear you like the pattern (sorry the one you purchased wasn’t so great!) and I’d be honoured to have you take a look at the Premium collection!
      The crocheted fabric has a different texture on the other side, and is slightly fuzzier – that’s the only reason it’s turned inside out! You’re welcome to leave yours right-side out and it will still work, I just did mine the other way because I preferred the look, and so that instruction was included in the tutorial 😉

      • Roberta (Bobbie) McCord says:

        Thanks for responding to my question… I will have to make the parts and decide which side I like. I’m in the middle of a project for my sister, but the minute I’m done with it this darling Schnauzer is next! I’m sure I’ll be in touch…(I haven’t located the Premium patterns yet, but haven’t looked too hard either ?)
        Hugs to you Jessie ?

  42. Rose says:

    I am having so much fun trying this. My friends say it will take a miracle worker to make a dog from the pictures of the pieces I have completed so far….lol. I am hoping to really surprise them. I am having a blast making it and I think that is part of the fun.

    • Jessie says:

      Haha! The pieces don’t really look dog-like on their own, but I’m sure your pup will come out perfect! I’m glad you’re enjoying it 🙂

  43. Melinda says:

    I finished this for a friend who just lost his Schnauzer.

    • Jessie says:

      I’m sure that will make your friend very happy 🙂 I’m glad you found the pattern useful!

  44. Denise Young says:

    Could someone let me have the height and width and length of this gorgeous little creature. I want to upsize him to door-stopper size, please?

    • Jessie says:

      The dog will be about 25 cm tall, using the hook and yarn combination listed in the pattern 🙂 Good luck with your door-stopper – interesting idea!

  45. Pam says:

    How do you “stuff as you go” if you’re supposed to turn it inside out? I’m confused…

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Pam. The pieces should be turned inside-out at any point before you start stuffing them, and then just keep crocheting like normal, except now it will seem like you’re working into the “Wrong Side” of the stitches. You’ll still be working into the Right Side, however, but you’ll need to insert you hook from the inside of the body parts towards the outside. I hope that makes sense! 🙂

  46. Mandy Allebone says:

    Thank you for this pattern, its brilliant, I have made one for a good friend of mine, not sure how to post a photo but would love u to see it

      • Jan says:

        Have you ever though of, or can you make a pattern for knitted schnauzers? I just love the crocheted one but it’s a skill I have never mastered I’m afraid.

        • Jessie says:

          Hey Jan! I can’t knit so, No – sorry! Haha! My mum tried a few times to teach me and I guess the projects came out okay but it never caught on like crochet which comes naturally to me and is so much more versatile 😀

  51. Kristen Reffitt says:

    Hey i am in need of help. I have done the head part twice now with two different hook sizes. I live in the US. I started the first time with an f hook which is 3.75. My head was huge. The second time i did it with my d hook size which is a 3.25. Its still huge. The next step i have is a b 2.25. Do you think i need to use my b hook for the head? We dont have a 3.0 mm in the US.

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Kristen! If The B hook is your next closest size down and you want a smaller head, then yes, you should use it 🙂

  56. Liz Hand says:

    This is brilliant and just what i’ve been looking for. My sister in law has a black lakeland often mistaken for a schnauzer but v similar beard and eyebrows and will enjoy attempt to recreate Magic’s coloring. Off to but wool immediately…your pattern and intructions are beautifully clear. Thx for sharing.

  57. Naomi says:

    Hey, I absolutely love this dog a dead hoping to make him for my friend’s little boy. I am new to this however and was just wondering if you slip stitch to join each round as you go? It may be a very silly question but as I said I am a beginner ? Thanks!

    • Jessie says:

      Hey Naomi! I’m glad you like him and I’m sure your friend’s little boy will be very happy! You shouldn’t join each row with a SS, as this pattern is worked in the round (in a continuous spiral). At the end of a round, simply crochet into the next st to start a new round.

  69. Katterkat says:

    Thank you for the pattern. I made a Tramp one about 2 months ago. Now the lady wants a baby Tramp. I realize yours is a little over 9 in. tall. So I am only going to make the first part 36 stiches across instead of the 48. Mine will probably only be 12-14cm tall. Which will be about 5 in tall. Just the right height I want. I just finished a puppy Lady.

    Thank you again for your pattern.

  70. Christine says:

    Absolutely gorgeous, can’t wait to make him.

  72. Laura says:

    Where do you get your safety eyes? And how do you put them in the pattern? I’m having a terrible time trying to fit them btwn my stitches.

    • Jessie says:

      Hey Laura. I buy them from my local yarn shop. Fabric shops usually keep them in the haberdashery section too. The eye has a threaded plastic pip on the back. You should be able to push that pip through the stitches without any hassle. If you’re using a similar hook and yarn combination to the pattern, and the recommended size of eyes, the mesh of your crochet should easily allow the pip through. Then you squeeze the backing piece on to secure it. It’s strange that you’re struggling to get them in – I’ve never had that problem with any eyes on a project. Maybe your eyes have an odd design? They should look like this:
      safety eyes

  73. Jane says:

    I have a question: when making the head and marking the middle og the face – do you count 14 stitches from you start the row and mark it? Or later in the row? When you are

  74. Mimi says:

    You are amazing! I’m so impressed! Great sharing!

  75. Jennifer Rainnie says:

    hi can you please tell me how I can print this pattern so I can make one for a friend that has Schnauzers

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Jennifer. You’ll need to use a third party printer like this one: https://www.printfriendly.com/
      Please note however, that this pattern is not intended for printing so I haven’t composed it with that in mind. It is very picture-heavy and spaciously laid out.

  76. Debbi says:

    He (or she) is adorable! I’m going to attempt to make this for a friend of mine. Her Schnauzer’s name was Snuggles. You are very talented and I want to thank you for this great pattern! Do you think you will do one of a Beagle? They are very lovable dogs.

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Debbi. You’re very welcome, I’m glad you like doggie and I hope you enjoy the pattern! Beagles are the cutest! But I don’t have plans to make anymore dogs, this one was already a far deviation from my usual animals (which is why I made is free) so I probably wont do anything similar again.

  77. Angelina says:

    O…M…G! LOVE IT! WHO EVER CREATED THIS TOTALLY GETS 10?’S FROM ME!!! We used to have a schnauzer! ?

    Regards lucy.

  79. Janine Morrow says:

    I am a little over a year late finding this great pattern. I crochet and felt but am confused about the ply of the yarn. Most of yarn in the states is 4 ply. You are using an 8 ply so do I just use a double strand?

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Janine. The great thing about amigurumi patterns is they never go stale, so it doesn’t matter how late you join the party! There are still many people only discovering this pattern now, and asking me questions about it, so you’re not alone 😉
      Yarn weight: In my experience, using two 4ply threads does not equal an 8ply thread, it always comes out substantially thicker than 8ply. If you can’t get Double Knit, Light Worsted, 8ply or 11wpi in the colour/type you want, I’d suggest using the next weight UP rather than DOWN. Go for a thicker weight, rather than thinner one because it will make better fur. You might struggle to make fur with 4ply (I certainly do).
      Hook size: The only equivalent I know of for a 3mm hook is UK size 11. As far as I can tell from research, it’s between a US size 2/C and size 3/D. So I’d recommend one of those two. You’re probably better off using the size 3/D with the weight of yarn specified for the pattern (if you can get the correct yarn).
      If you end up using a thicker yarn, go up a hook size to a US size G or even an H, depending on the yarn. You’re aiming for a tight enough mesh that your stuffing wont show through, but not so tight that it becomes physically hard to work with.
      I hope that helps!

  80. Janine Morrow says:

    Oops! Also my crochet needles do not seem to correspond to yours. Just going to practice till I hear from you.

  81. Laura Hubbell says:

    Can you show me how to sew the head onto the body? I’m having trouble with it. Thanks!

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Laura. If you give me more detail I’ll try to help. Are you struggling to place the head in the correct position, or struggling with the actual stitching, or something else?

  82. Nanette Cordell says:

    Thank you for this great pattern. We just lost our sweet Schnauzer girl last week. I’ll be making this for my husband.

      I’m sorry to hear about your loss, that’s very sad. I hope you enjoy the pattern, and the sweet reminder of you furbaby

  85. Lynn says:

    I was wondering if you sell already made schnauzer dogs?

  86. Tammy Christian says:

    Thank you so much for the schnauzer pattern #027 & #028. I have a mini schnauzer so I tried to make mine to look similar to my dog, Chloe. This was my first amigurumi and my first needle felting. I wanted mine to look like it had hair all over it, after I got done crocheting it. I did the body needle felting with a Lion Brand yarn that is variegated black, grey, and a cream color. Then I did around the nose, the chest, and on the paws with an off white wool felt. My 5 year old niece seen it this morning and asked me, “Is that a stuffed Chloe?” At least it was recognizable as a dog.
    Thank you so much for your generosity in sharing your patterns.

    • Jessie says:

      Hey Tammy! That sounds amazing, I’d really like to see how your dog came out with fur all over it! Any chance you could share a picture with us? If you’re on Facebook, you can share on with the Projectarian group here.

  93. Christina says:

    I have made my schnauzer. I think his head is too big. I have used double knit wool. I also cannot get him to sit up because he seems top heavy. Please can you help

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Christina, sorry to hear you’re having trouble with your project. If your dog is already sewn together it’ll be difficult to fix but not impossible. (That’s why it’s always a good idea to pin everything together before you sew it, in case it needs adjustments). If the head is attached too far forward, it could un-balance your dog. If the head is too big, you may have over-stuffed it, and you should remove some stuffing. If you can’t open it up to take the stuffing out, another option is to try attaching the legs in different positions to support him (pin them in place first). If that doesn’t work either (or if you prefer to try something else), you can weigh down the body. Do do this, you’ll have to take most of the stuffing out of the body. Find something to use as a weight; ball bearings, a pebble, etc. Put the weight inside the body, close to the bottom. Pin the head on to make sure the body is heavy enough to keep him upright. Add more weight if needed. I hope this helps!

  94. Linda says:

    I had no problem finding yarn and eyes for my project, but every craft supply I have checked does not carry the nose. Where did you find yours?

    • Jessie says:

      Linda, I found my nose at my local yarn shop. Some people struggle to find eyes and noses in their area, so they purchase online. Hope you find some!

    My daughter and her family recently had to put down their beloved schnauzer. I am a crocheter but this might be beyond my skill level. Could you tell me what the cost would be to have one made?

      Hi Crochet Grandma, I’ve sent you an email regarding the custom order of a pup for your daughter and her family.

  97. Sharon Tolle says:

    Not sure what you mean by invisible decreases being inside out. Could you explain please.Do you have to do them differently because of the pieces being turned inside out?

    • Jessie says:

      Hey Sharon. I suppose my wording is a bit confusing, sorry! When you do an invisible decrease and then turn the piece inside out, you will see 2 stitch loops where the decrease is. So what I mean to say is, you should turn your piece inside out first, and then do you invisible decreases as normal. Does that make sense?

  98. Marisa says:

    Thank you for this great pattern! It was really well written and easy to follow. I didn’t think I’d manage to make him, but with your explicit instructions I’m so glad to say I did!

    • Jessie says:

      That’s great news! Thanks for the feedback Marisa, I’m so happy you enjoyed the pattern 🙂

  99. MaryHannah says:

    I just recently got into making Amigurumi, and this is the cutest thing ever…PLUS i have a schnauzer…but whats more perfect is that my schnauzie pups name is actually Winchester!! So now i HAVE to make this (I may have to try to make it with black yarn though to match my little guy) 😀

    • Jessie says:

      It’s fate MaryHannah! The universe has guided me to write this pattern JUST for your little Winchester! Haha! There have been a few different colour combos popping up in the Facebook group and it’s always nice to see new ones. Enjoy the pattern 🙂

  101. Abigail Bautista Chumpitaz says:

    Buenas noches
    Me podrías ayudar no entiendo en la parte del cuerpo el R9 que dice -22 es una disminución o que punto es. Gracias de antemano

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Abigail
      R9-22: SC in each st around. (48)
      This means from R9 to R22, work 1 SC into each st.
      So that’s 14 straight rows with no increasing or decreasing.
      I hope that answers your question!

  102. Barbie Olson says:

    Hi I would love to pay someone to make this for me. If interested email me. Barbied6223@aol.com

  103. Natane says:

    Hello!! Could you explain to me what is the meaning of the numbers on the end of each sentence?
    ex: R1: 6 SC into a magic ring. (6)
    whats the meaning of the firts 6? and the last?
    and R1 mean row 1?
    thanks!

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Natene!
      R stands for “round” or “row”
      The number at the end of each round/row is the total amount of stitches you will have by the end of that round.

  104. Tamy says:

  108. Odile says:

    Hey there! Thanks for this amazing pattern!

    I’m wondering how exactly to make an inside out invisible decrease? Am I suppose to pick the outside loops instead of the inside ones? I’m confused!
    Thanks!!

    • Jessie says:

      Yes Odile. An invisible decrease is worked into FLO (Front Loops Only). So, once you’ve turned your crochet fabric so that the wrong side is facing, the loops you see in front are now the Front Loops (these were the Back Loops until you turned the fabric). So now you simply work your invisible decrease in FLO. I hope that makes sense 😉

  109. Cynthia says:

    I made one, mind doesn’t look as good as yours.
    I made it for my grandson he loves it.

    • Jessie says:

      I’m so glad you found the pattern useful Cynthia, and I’m sure you got lots of brownie points from your grandson!

  110. Odile says:

    Hey there! Amazing pattern – thanks! I’m just not sure how to do inside-out invisible decreases… help?

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Odile. Once your workpiece is turned inside out, you will be working into the “wrong side” of the stitches. And invisible decrease is worked into the front loops only (FLO), so simply work into the FLO of the wrong side of the stitches. Hope that helps!

    I know it’s been a while since you first posted this, but I saw it and am going to make it for my sister-in-law’s birthday gift in November. Her schnauzer is half dachsund, so I’ll be shortening the legs a little and using the same colors as a Rottweiler, but I wanted to thank you in advance for this cool pattern!

    I am having trouble understanding how to do the mouth. Do you have a video on this???

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Jackie! There isn’t a video for this one, unfortunately. All you have to do is stab the felting needle into the fur and form a line in your fur. Does that make sense?

    Made a schnauzer 17/08/2019 first attempt not bad!

    Is the black dog the same pattern?

    • Jessie says:

      Hi! The only dog I’ve made is the grey and beige on pictured in this post. While someone may have used my pattern to make a black dog, without a picture I can’t confirm if it’s the same pattern.

    Thanks so much for this. We have friends who are breeders and have FINALLY fallen pregnant with their first baby (quite late in life, Daddy will be 58). I’ve finished a light waffle wrap for bubby but wanted to make the perfect snuggle as well. I may alter your pattern a wee bit (hope that’s OK), just to ensure it is truly individualised for this miracle baby.

    Your ideas have helped me and inspired me on what felt like an intimidating gift.

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Fiona. Wow, that’s unbelievable! Congrats to them! You’re welcome to alter my patterns, the only rule pertaining to that is you may not claim any party of my design as your own. I hope you enjoy your project!

    Thank you for this cute doggie! I loved this project. I would like to show you, but don’t know how to pin it.
