If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen my seven dogs in seven days challenge where I crocheted a different dog every day for a week. Whilst most of the dogs I crocheted were patterns I had previously written such as the Basset Hound or the Dalmatian I also took suggestions from followers as to which breeds they wanted to see. I received a few different answers but the two I picked were Greyhound and Husky. This meant I had to come up with a brand new design for each of these in a day!

Basset Hound dog amigurumi free crochet pattern

For the Greyhound I didn’t have too many problems and the original one I made during the challenge ended up being the Greyhound amigurumi pattern I released the following week. However, I wasn’t happy with the husky I made during the challenge – it actually looked more like a collie! But, I have been working on the Husky amigurumi crochet pattern for a few weeks now and I’m very happy with how they’ve turned out.

To make your Husky amigurumi you’re going to require DK weight yarn in two different colours – white and another colour of your choice. I have used Stylecraft Special DK but you can use any brand of yarn. You’ll also need a 3mm hook, stuffing and a yarn needle. The eyes I’ve used are The Craft Factory Toy Eyes Solid Black – 9mm but if you don’t want to use plastic eyes you can embroider on some eyes with black yarn.

Materials

White Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK – White 1001

Black Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK – Black 1002

Eyes: The Craft Factory Toy Eyes Solid Black – 9mm (you may use yarn to sew on eyes if you prefer)
