Yorkshire Terrier By Vanessa Mooncie
"If you are a dog lover, or have dog lovers in your circle of “crochet-worthy” gift recipients, you will definitely enjoy this pattern. This amigurumi Yorkshire Terrier is a great project to dive into if you're looking for a fun, cute pattern to occupy your time. The Yorkshire Terrier’s long coat is formed by adding tassels to the head, neck, body and tops of the legs. The strands of yarn are trimmed to neaten and can be cut to any length desired (allowing you to make the coat according to what you'd like)."
