Hi there - You can buy Pomp Poodle yarn on Amazon or eBay (simply search for it on Google and you should see where to find it). Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

where do you buy pomp a doodle wool, I am in Canada and you cannot buy it anywhere, discontinued, if someone has some or knows where to get the botton candy pomp a doodle wool please let me know

Hi, I am from UK and wonder if I need to change single crochet to double crochet and double to treble etc. She is so pretty I can't wait to start!

i wonder if u could put the mouth of the poodle on this pattern.

Rosaliz you say it came out beautiful.did you make any modifications did not have any problems please help us to all of us that we have problems in make it .will appreciate gracefully.

I would like to know if the Lady who publish this beautiful poodle will give us a answer on the comments.i did have problems make it the Holes for the arms end up on the back.how you keep the head in place, please help......!!..?

For the Head Pouf what does the "e" mean. I agree with so many of the comments. Something is definitely wrong with the instructions and it is not a good thing when you put so much time into a pattern discovering things are off when you can't change anything because you're so far along. My holes for the arms and legs and also the neck did NOT match up. I had to close the holes and attach these parts where they needed to be. When you say to use a smaller and a larger hook, it would be more helpful to state the exact sizes. Round 2: With e and larger hook, sc in each st around. Again, what does the e mean? I'm at the end of the pattern and I'm afraid to do the head pouf. Hope someone sees this and can help!

oh and another thing.... when you do the neck opening on the body...... don't crochet 39 sc st other wise you will have the head off to the side.... its suppose to be 29 st then ch 10 then skip 10. I think you should have looked them over before posting the instructions

collar needs to be 2 rows longer, attaching head? did you do it from the bottom of the head or the side? also, double check your counts on stitches! I don't mind remodifing, but some of it was a bit off!your ears: you may have it on here as one thing, but they don't turn out like you have in the picture. Did you make this dog or just print a picture of it? your tail is so much longer in the picture vs. what you have in instructions.

wonderful picture of a pink poodle. I am making a purple and a pink one. However, I had to guess on certain things: 1. You all never said when to use the H hook. it only says to use a smaller hook and 2. You need to get rid of the video that is no longer existing. I am using my imagination and though I won't have buttons for eyes the girls are old enuf for them, I am not doing black nose insteadpurple poodle gets a dark purple nose and eyes and the pink will get dark pink nose and eyes

I made this for my "girly, girl" granddaughter for her birthday. Everyone was surprised that it was handmade. All thought it was a big hit. My granddaughter looks it and has it sitting on her bed. She is 7 yrs old.

I would prefer an English Bull Terrier

I would like to make this for my granddaughter. So stinkin' cute!!!

easier said then done! there is a lot of remodifying on it

I would make this for my friend girl because her favorite color is pink! A child would love this also! Thanks for the pattern!

i made this Poodle with Love it came out Beautifullllllllllllll

I crocheted the head but it looks so big, was wondering if I'm doing something wrong. When does the crochet a long start?

When does the crochet along start?

For crafter 5934454 - some patterns call for inserting a small piece of dowel in the neck and head, stuff around the dowel. Works well.

Please look at row 24 on the body. Is the stitch count really 52? So you need to add 4 stitches on row 25 to get back to 56.

How does the head stay up? Once I made a doll and the head kept rolling down or to the side.

dont really need a dowel to put in which usually comes with the stuffing. What I did was crochet it on with slip stitch and then added another row of pomp a doodle under the head giving it a much better look.
