This is a knitted Dachshund from “Knit Your Own Dog,” a book a friend bought for me.
I just used some leftover sock yarn, figuring I’d try the Dachshund since it would be easily recognizable even if he was done in multicolor yarn and not in true dog colors!
The knitting wasn’t bad, but the sewing up was awful. My guy came out a bit crooked as you can see in the belly picture. All my non-knitting friends seem to love him but I get annoyed when things don’t turn out perfectly!
The book is really cute, but right now I don’t have plans to make any more of them. The one good thing about this project was that it was small - perfect for traveling or plane knitting.
