Scottie Dog Toy Pattern

Soft, Cuddly "Sleepy Time" Toys will replace factory mades that are hard to get. To be crocheted of washable Enterprise Cotton Yarn and stuffed with cotton or other soft materials • just the thing for a sleepy child to take to bed • so soft they can be rolled upon and do no harm.

Complete row by row instructions as far as needed are given— then follow the chart.

Crocheted in Puff Stitch, these toys are firm—durable and, if tightly crocheted, will not stretch.


The charts show layout of puffs to be followed to make all of these toys. Puff Stitch is simple to do—read the first 3 rows of Humpty Dumpty Doll instructions. Following any of the charts, row after row are crocheted in the same manner. Each square on the chart is a puff stitch.

Diagonal lines that form curved edges indicate increases (as in Row 10 of Humpty Dumpty Doll instructions) or decreases. To decrease at beginning of rows, sk last sc, dc in next sc,—hold final loop of it on hook, draw up loop in next st, thread over and thru all 3 loops on hook at once.

To find number of ch sts to start—count 2 chs for each puff, plus 2 and add an extra ch for each increase on starting edge; i. e. chart for starting edge at top of Jumbo Elephant Toy shows 7 puffs and 2 increases—7 x 2 + 2 = 16 and add 1 ch for each increase = 18 ch on starting chain.

Make two side pieces for each toy so that wrong sides may be placed together in same positions.

You can lay out your own ideas on cross section paper to be crocheted in the same manner for other toys.


MATERIALS: 2 balls for body—just a few yards of color for collar and eye.

Start at foot with ch 8, 7 sc on ch. 3 puffs in next 2 puff rows. In third puff row make an inc (as in Row 10 of Humpty Dumpty Doll) and 3 puffs. Last puff row (No. 4) has 4 puffs. Make two feet,—after last sc in last puff row of second leg, ch 7, sl st to first sc in puff row 4 of first foot, then work 25 sc across legs and ch 7 to start body. Head is made separately and sewn to body. Inset piece is 3 puffs wide, start same as for feet. For collar ch 40 in color, 39 sc on ch. Fasten around neck.

The two sides of this Scottie will make an ex­cellent Hot Pot Holder—pad each side and line with muslin—place padded sides together and stitch from base of neck, around nose and across top to base of tail.
