I made this dog for a friend's baby months and months ago using Sirdar baby crofter wool in blue with white Sirdar Snuggly contrast. It was almost the same size as him when I gave it to him. Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of dog mark 1 and so decided to make another. This time (dog 2) I followed the same Sirdar pattern but used Aldi aran wool and increased the needle size accordingly. It has turned out a little larger than expected! But how can you not love him anyway?
