How To Make A Crochet Labrador
If you are new to crochet, then check out this article to get to grips with the basic techniques before you begin your
Crochet Labrador.

For help with reading patterns, you might find this crochet abbreviations information useful as well.
Crochet Labrador Puppy Equipment
To make your own crochet Lab puppy you will need the following:
 100g yellow aran yarn
 Size E / 3.5mm crochet hook
 25g black soft & smooth aran yarn
 25g purple acrylic yarn (for the collar)
 safety eyes
 stitch marker
 sharp scissors
 yarn needle
 toy stuffing
You can buy crochet equipment from hobby stores. In the UK Hobby Craft and in the USA Hobby Lobby both have a
great range of yarns at reasonable prices.
To follow this pattern it doesn’t matter which colour yarn you choose, as long as the yarn weight is the same .
Most equipment can be found online through their websites or through Amazon.
There are also a wealth of independent craft shops to be stumbled upon locally, where the prices are often a little
higher, but you can find some fantastic quality unique yarns.
Crochet Labrador Puppy Pattern
Your crochet Lab will be worked in a circular pattern, building from a magic circle . Each section of the Lab will be
made individually, then sewn together when complete.
The tota l number of stitches in each row will be shown in brackets at the end of the instructions.
I recommend using a stitch marker to help you keep count of your stitches as you go. If you don’t have any stitch
markers then you can use a small piece of yarn to mark your place instead .

Please note: my crochet patterns are always written using US terminology.
(I learned from American youtube chan nels, and despite being British this has very much stuck with me).
If you are already keen on crochet but use the UK terminology, just have a quick check with this crochet termi nology
conversion chart before you begin.

Sewing Your Crochet Labrador Together
To sew your crochet Labrador together use the yarn threads you left when you closed each section.
Make sure to use fine stitches, weaving through each corresponding crochet stitch to firm ly attach the segments
together.
Position the front legs at either side of the chest, and the back legs under the bottom. This will give your puppy a
canine style seated position when you put him down.
Crochet Labrador Puppy Collar
I have given my Labrador puppies collars. To make them you will need to use your purple yarn to begin with.

Make a chain of twenty one stitches.
Starting from the third stitch from the hook, make a single crochet into each stitch.
At the end of the row tie off.
To make the coll ar tag, make a magic circle of four stitches, and put two single crochets into each stitch of the circle.
Tie off and sew the tag onto the collar using the loose thread of yarn.
You can then sew the first initial of your Lab’s name onto the collar to make it even more your own!
Your Personalised Crochet Labrador Puppy
When you make your own crochet Lab puppy using the instructions above, you will find that he looks like the yellow
Lab pup in the pictures.
To have a different look you can either order the pu p from me, and we will have a chat about how you would like to
individualise him, or you can personalise the pattern yourself.
I am a big fan of taking an existing pattern and giving it a unique twist.
The easiest way to adapt the pattern is to add or remo ve rows.
Think your Labrador has longer legs? No problem, just add a few rows to the length.
Want to give him shorter ears? Then just take a row off the length there instead.
You can also use different coloured yarns to reflect his shade, although I highly recommend staying with the same
yarn type. Different types or ‘weights’ of yarn give different stitch sizes and finishes to the toy.
