This little puppy came to my mind about a week ago. I had fuzzy grey yarn waiting and I just started to crochet. I always begin with the head because this is usually the difficultiest part of a toy. If the head/face isn't cute enough, the toy isn't worth crocheting (imho). I gave him also a vest because the summer here in Estonia is quite cold at the moment ;)
When the grey dog was ready I had to crochet it again with a normal yarn, to see how it looks. And it looked quite good. So I decided to share the pattern with you too. You can get it in my Etsy shop or by Ravelry.
