Chihuahua Amigurumi – Dog Crochet Pattern

I made a cute chihuahua amigurumi! This is a free dog crochet pattern for all you animal lovers out there! They look small, but they’re mighty in their minds! I tried to create a sort of life-size Chihuahua plush (which in terms of dogs is a small size, but in amigurumi size, it’s a large doll!).

I must admit I am actually more of a fan of bigger dog breeds (shhh don’t tell the chihuahua this), but I had someone request that I make a chihuahua after their pet, and I’m an animal lover, so I was game. So that’s actually how it came to be that I came up with a Chihuahua pattern. Now she always has it in her car and drives around with it everywhere.

Here is a sweet Chihuahua that would love to be adopted! Just look at those eyes. Who can resist?

This Chihuahua Amigurumi has cute perky ears with an inner pink color, spindly legs, and a cute snout.

CHIHUAHUA AMIGURUMI HEAD ASSEMBLY
1. Stuff the Head and Snout.

2. Sew Snout 9 Rounds down from Top of Head.

3. After sewing snout into place, you can also curve the snout upward and sew the snout onto itself to give a more perky look if you would like.

4. Use 20 mm plastic eyes (these are the ones I like to use) for both the eyes and the nose. The button eye shanks that I use are great because they have a big latch in the back that my yarn needle can fit through!

5. Placement of Eyes should be spaced with 6 sts between them.

6. Sew Nose on with the same 20mm plastic shank button.

7. Sew Ears onto Top of Head.
