HOW TO MAKE FUR FOR AMUGURUMI

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

First of all: THANK YOU for the overwhelming response to Part 1 of this pattern. You guys are awesome! Welcome to Part 2 on how to make the fur, I hope you enjoy it! I’ve tried my best to cover everything but you’re welcome to ask me questions if you think I missed something.

Secondly: Wow, this post was a ton of work, and no doubt I missed something!! Please let me know if you spot any mistakes (including typos) so I can fix them! Welcome to your new job as my proof-readers – please accept this rad tutorial as payment XD

 


 

INTRO

 


 

Making fur with yarn is easy and so effective. This dog’s pattern uses very simple shapes, yet adding fur makes it look quite complex and realistic. I recommend everyone tries it at least once because it’s really not that hard for the payoff you get, and it will unveil a whole new world of possibilities for your craft!

You’ll find the instructions for making this guy’s body in Part 1.

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

To felt or not to felt?

 

This dog’s tutorial will not teach you how to felt, it will only show you where to felt. If you don’t know how to felt, here’s a tutorial I wrote a while back on felting basics that might help:

How to needle felt basic features on your amigurumi using yarn #crochet #plush

After attaching and brushing all the fur, I felted the edge of the hairline in some places. You can see the effect here.

Left: Not felted, so you see the knots. Right: Felted, no knots!

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

The mouth will also be felted. If you don’t felt yours, you’ll just have a wild, fluffy muzzle which looks cute too! This is how the felted mouth looks.

SUPPLIES YOU’LL NEED

 


 

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

A dog (click here for the pattern in Part 1)

Yarn in fur colours (I used less than a 100g ball of Light Grey and Beige; and Dark Grey left over from the body)

What type of yarn to use? Again, see Part 1.

Sharp scissors

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

Optional: Felting needle

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

 

Ready? Okay!

 

 


 

STEP 1 – DON’T PANIC!

 


 

It may seem overwhelming, but just take it one thread at time!

I’ve done small amounts of fur work before, so I knew technically how to do  it when I made this fuzzy dude, but with this guy I had no idea how the actual “hair growth pattern” should be, so I winged it and it came out perfect. The fur is all fluffy and crazy once you’ve brushed it out, so it hides imperfections well.

 


 

STEP 2 – CUT SOME THREADS

 


 

I started with the chest for no particular reason, so I used Light Grey first.

So, take the Light Grey yarn and wind it around your four fingers. Then cut the bunch at one end to make a pile of threads that are more or less the same length.

I didn’t count (are you crazy?!) but over all, I think I used at roughly a million threads of mixed colours and lengths on this pup. More on the different lengths later – just cut some Light Grey to get started!

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

 


 

STEP 3 – ATTACH THREADS TO THE BODY

 


 

This is what you’re aiming for. Yes, we’re actually making a mop, not a dog (surprise!)

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Tip: Add less threads than you think you need at first. Although you can remove the fur after it’s all brushed out, it’s much easier to add more right at the end.

You don’t have to get every thread in the same place as mine, just try get it symmetrical and it will look great.

Insert your hook roughly in the middle of the chest, in line with the shoulders.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Fold a thread in half, grab the midpoint with your hook and pull a loop through.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Pull the 2 tails of the yarn through the loop.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Pull them all the way through til you get a little knot, and it will look like this.

Tutorial: How to make your own for for amigurumi

Your first thread is attached to your first stitch! Yay! Only about 999,999 more to go XD

Note: Attach ALL the threads on the whole body before you start brushing the yarn out!!

 

CHEST


 

Now attach a thread to the stitches on either side, and carry on until you have a whole row of them like this.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Flip this row up toward the dog’s head, then make another row, working into each crochet stitch on the next round of the dog’s chest.

Then add one more row below that one.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

You now have three whole rows! Look at you go!

 

Flip all the rows back down, then continue adding rows to fill up the top of his chest, all the way up his neck, and stop at the join where the head is sewn on. Cut more threads as you need them.

I didn’t count how many threads I used at any point, so here’s where you get creative! I mean, you are creative right? Of course you are – that’s how you got this far! So use your imagination, refer to the picture above where my mop – er, my dog is all covered in threads, and Google some Schnauzer pictures to look at while you work. Place threads wherever you see that there is longer hair on the real dog.

Here you can see the basic hair pattern I did on the chest (it’s already brushed out here but you get the picture):

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

When you’re finished attaching all the Light Grey threads to the chest, add 1 row of Dark Grey threads on either side of the Light Grey patch, as a border to blend the body colour with the chest fur. You only have to add the Dark Grey to the right and left side of the chest patch, not the top and bottom

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

PAWS


 

Wind some Beige yarn around three fingers this time, to cut shorter threads for the paws.

On the paws, I left the first few rows bald from the toe up (about 5), so he would have a small, dark paw, then added a row of Beige threads all the way around.

Then I flipped these threads down and added another row of Beige above that row.

Then I added 2 rows of Dark Grey above that (those will help blend the colours).

 

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

 

MUZZLE


 

Wind some Dark Grey yarn around three fingers again to cut the correct length of threads for the muzzle. The Beige threads should be cut to the same length.

On the face, start with the Dark Grey. Make a V-shaped line of Dark Grey threads from the edge of the nose, along the muzzle towards the eyes (spanning about 5 crocheted rows on the muzzle). Notice that I attached enough Dark Grey threads to make a solid line at the roots, not allowing Beige threads to peek through.

Then do the side of the muzzle. Using Beige threads, make an outline first in the shape of the hairline you want.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

The Beige outline should extend further along the jaw, passed the Grey when viewed from the side.

It should also go all the way straight down to where the chest hair begins

Don’t attach any Beige under the chin yet.

Tutorial: How to make your own for for amigurumi

Now you can start filling in the muzzle with lots of Beige threads. Start by adding threads close to the outline you just made, attaching one thread onto each crochet stitch. Build up a good, solid border about 1cm wide inside the outline.

After that, you can start adding threads much more sparsely, leaving a gap of 2 or crochet 3 stitches between each thread, so each thread will have a bald circle around it. Keep going til the muzzle is covered in this manner, all the way down the chin and ending at the chest hair.

 

EYEBROWS


 

Again, wind yarn around three fingers to get the right length for the brows. Cut some in Beige and some Light Grey.

Do a few longer Light Grey threads too – the same length as you used for the chest.

The eyebrow should begin directly in line with the edge of the eye as illustrated below.  Leave a gap about of 1 crochet stitch above the eye.

Starting with Beige, begin at the inner corner of the eye and attach a few threads (about 3) in a little arched line, following the eye’s curve. Then flip the threads down over the eye and do another row exactly the same above it. Flip those threads over the eye, and do a third row the same again, in Light Grey this time.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Continuing with these arched lines, add some longer Light Grey threads. Finish in line with the outer edge of the eye,

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

 


 

STEP 4 – BRUSH, BRUSH & BRUSH SOME MORE

 


By the time everything is brushed out, your hairlines will all look something like this. You will still be able to see all the knots where the threads are joined:

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Start on the chest.

Flip all the threads up, except for the very lowest row, so they look something like this.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Now using your slicker brush, start brushing the lowest row only.

Start at the very tips of the yarn. If you start halfway up the length of the yarn, the yarn will clog up in a tight knot and it will break off instead of brushing out!

So, start at the tip and brush the yarn out til it’s all fluffy, then move up the yarn shaft and brush more until that part is also fluffy (just like brushing long, tangled people-hair!).

Here’s an example on some loose threads:

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

 

Keep going until the entire row is brushed out, then flip the next row down and repeat. It will take a while to brush everything out. Be patient – if you rush it, you’ll just break the yarn.

You’ll get a TON of fluff in your brush – keep it for felting later!!!

When you finish the chest, move on to the chin and work your way slowly up the muzzle in layers like before.

You can then brush out the paws, starting at the bottom-most row and working up the leg.

Then brush out the eyebrows.

 


 

STEP 5 – TRIM

 


 

Again, don’t panic! In this stage, imperfection is better because it looks more natural. Plus, the fur is all wild and fuzzy and bushy, which helps hide wonky cuts!

Cut small amounts at first. It’s much easier to cut it shorter later than to have to replace the fur!

Start on the chest and cut off all the wispy bits that are sticking out. Trim the edge into a V shape.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Trim all the wispy bits sticking out on the muzzle. It should naturally fall in the right kind of shape, but if you have dodgy bits, just trim those. (My dog’s mouth is already felted here – yours will still be all fluffy. We’ll get on to the felted mouth later.)

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

To trim the paws, I lifted up sections of the hair perpendicular from the skin and trimmed it all the same length. I brushed the leg itself as well, at the Gark Grey hairline, to blend it with the fur.

With the fur laying flat, it looks like this:

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

When trimming the eyebrows, make the Light Grey hair at the back, slightly longer than the beige hair in front.

Make the hair quite short at the forehead, and longer as you get closer to the temple.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

I brushed the side of the face too, for some fuzz on the cheek area, and trimmed the wispy bits off.

STEP 6 – FELTING

 


 

Time to use some of that awesome fluffy rat’s nest you accumulated from brushing!

Felting serves two purposes for your beautiful creation. First, we’re going to conceal the visible knots along the hairlines by felting over them with matching fluff; and second, we’re going to shape that that cute mouth!

Tip: You can keep the leftover fluff for stuffing your other amigurumis!

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

FELTING THE HAIRLINES


 

Start on the eyebrows. Using some of your fancy Dark Grey “roving”, felt the gap that you left between the eye and the eyebrow. Don’t compact it too much and be careful not to felt your hard-earned fur away – make sure the felting stays light and fluffy, but intact 😉

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Felt along the Dark Grey hairline on the muzzle with matching fluff.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Using Beige fluff, felt over the knots along the jaw.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Brush and arrange all the fur, then felt over any other conspicuous knots that you want to hide. I felted over the Beige at the edge of the safety nose as well.

 

FELTING THE MOUTH


 

Sit your pup down. At the front of the muzzle, brush all the fur neatly, straight down towards the floor.

Start right in the center, at the very tip of the nose. In the existing fur, felt a line straight down, about 15mm long.

Tutorial: How to make your own fur for amigurumi

Then felt a straight line perpendicular to that, making the mouth.

And now, your beautiful little dog is complete!

    Wow that is amazing

  4. Tricia says:

    I’m confused on the felting.
    How do you attach it?
    Thank you

    • Jessie says:

      Tricia, felting is attached using a special type of needle, called a felting needle. It has a burred tip that you use to stab the felting fibers into place. The felting fibers mesh with the crochet and that keeps the it attached. Near the top of this post, there’s a picture of a brush and a pink thing that looks like a pen – that’s my felting needle! Here’s a post I did on basic needle felting that might help: https://www.projectarian.com/2016/03/13/project-011-easy-needle-felting-yarn/

  31. Lucia Helena says:

    Thank you for this pattern. I loved! I’m from Brasil.

  32. Joy says:

    is there any chance you would make a video of you felting under the nose and doing the mouth?

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Joy. Unfortunately I wouldn’t be able to make a video of that. Maybe I can help by explaining in more detail:
      To do the mouth, you’ll literally just be stabbing the existing fur into the face until you’ve made a line that you can see. To keep the hair in place while you felt it, brush it flat before you start and then hold it down with your free hand, giving yourself space to work on the hair. Start at the tip of the nose, and work your way down slowly, felting in a straight line. The same goes for the second line of the mouth that runs perpendicular to the first line.
      The same method applies again for the felting around the nose. Hold the existing hair in place with your free hand and then just start stabbing your needle into the area around the nose. That will flatten the hair and keep it in place. Keep going until it looks the way you want it to. If you need to fill in any gaps where skin shows through, use a bit of the roving. Just pinch a bit of roving off (roughly the size of the area you need to cover), don’t roll it into ball or compact it, place it onto the bald area, and start stabbing it into place until it looks like the felting surrounding it. Repeat as needed.
      I hope that helps!

    I just found this pattern and am really excited to make the pup. Can anyone tell me what yarn works for this thats available in Australia please. TY

  39. Rita Giovinazzo says:

    This is brilliant! I love your instructions too – crystal clear. Thank you so much. I can’t wait to create this. Any chance you might do a German Shepherd??

    • Jessie says:

      Thanks Rita, enjoy your project! I have no plans to do any other dog breeds. This one was something I’d never normally consider but I took it as a special order from a customer and decided to publish the pattern since I had to design it anyway. There are lots of other adorable animal designs on the way though!

  40. Devonne Dotts says:

    I know this was a while ago, but do you happen to know/remember what yarn you used or have suggestions for a yarn to use? I’m new to felting, so I’m not really sure what works; but I really want to make this pattern.

    • Jessie says:

      Hi Devonne. I used a South African brand of yarn called Charity. Part 1 has information on what type of yarn will work best. Although I can’t recommend specific brands, this will point you in the right direction for choosing.
      Click HERE to see part 1, and scroll down to where it says “WHAT TYPE OF YARN SHOULD I USE?”
      I hope that helps!

  43. Gale says:

    Thank you for sharing a great pattern. I used to make a Maltese pup. I shortened the snout and it was perfect. It was my first attempt lots of hours because I did fur all over. I attach on Pinterest but don’t know if I did right. Again thank you I love this.

    • Jessie says:

      That sounds amazing Gale! I don’t know if I’d be able to find it among the many pins on Pinterest but I’d love to see your fluffy pup!

  44. D bbie says:

    Is there a way to see the felt I g done on this puppy? I can’t picture it .

    • Jessie says:

      I didn’t photograph the actual felting. To felt the mouth you just stab the are where the fur already is, to compact that fur into place where you want it. To felt the areas where it used to hide the knots, you lay a tuft of your roving on top of the knots you want to hide and stab it in place.

    Hi there!

    Thanks so so much for this amazing pattern, I find it not just very helpful but funny to follow as well.

    It was my pleasure work out this magnificent piece of art (here the result: https://www.facebook.com/454735245060105/photos/a.454762255057404/473154566551506/?type=3&theater ) in fact I made two of them =)

    My recommendations after the second one, in my experience: 1) ensemble head and body before the paws, this will make you easiest balance better in the end, when I assemble the paws first and added the head I lose a little bit of steadiness; 2) use a bigger crochet hook for the paws than the one you use for the rest of the work, this also help me to make a better balance (so much as 1/2 would do the trick).

    Well, thats it for me, congrats again, not just in this particular pattern but in the whole page, it’s amazing work.

    Thank you so much. I have really enjoyed making this for my grandson who turns 4 next month and who has a young miniature Schnauzer in his family. I know he will have to fight with his mother as to who actually has possession of this wee chappie! I live near Wellington, NZ, and my grandson lives in Auckland, NZ. Thank you again.

    I didn’t understand how to Felt….

    • Jessie says:

      Sorry Fernanda, I tried to go into as much detail as possible without making this post insanely long. I’m sorry if it wasn’t enough info for you to understand how to felt. There are some good You Tube videos that go into great detail – you should have a look! 🙂
