Recently, most crocheted toys are made using the Japanese weaving technique – amigurumi. They are not only trendy, but also stunningly beautiful, attracting the attention of everyone around.
Amigurumi dogs are especially popular, and with proper skill, they turn out to be incredibly realistic and are in no way inferior, if not even superior in quality, to toys from the oil-st-market. In addition, given the fact that each craftswoman can decorate such dogs at her own discretion, we can safely say that there are no identical toys twice, which means that the dog you knitted will be truly unique!
Let’s start knitting our long-legged dog Pool! By following the exact knitting instructions given below, you will have an amazing almost 40 cm toy.

REDUCED. – decrease from 2 SC into one loop İNC;
