Scottie Dog Toy Pattern

There are slight variations to materials and instructions between these two versions of the same pattern in different publications. Two versions are below.


Thread Mills #9305, Quick Crochet with Enterprise Yarn

Soft, Cuddly "Sleepy Time" Toys will replace factory mades that are hard to get. To be crocheted of washable Enterprise Cotton Yarn and stuffed with cotton or other soft materials • just the thing for a sleepy child to take to bed • so soft they can be rolled upon and do no harm.

Complete row by row instructions as far as needed are given— then follow the chart.

Crocheted in Puff Stitch, these toys are firm—durable and, if tightly crocheted, will not stretch.


The charts show layout of puffs to be followed to make all of these toys. Puff Stitch is simple to do—read the first 3 rows of Humpty Dumpty Doll instructions. Following any of the charts, row after row are crocheted in the same manner. Each square on the chart is a puff stitch.

Diagonal lines that form curved edges indicate increases (as in Row 10 of Humpty Dumpty Doll instructions) or decreases. To decrease at beginning of rows, sk last sc, dc in next sc,—hold final loop of it on hook, draw up loop in next st, thread over and thru all 3 loops on hook at once.

To find number of ch sts to start—count 2 chs for each puff, plus 2 and add an extra ch for each increase on starting edge; i. e. chart for starting edge at top of Jumbo Elephant Toy shows 7 puffs and 2 increases—7 x 2 + 2 = 16 and add 1 ch for each increase = 18 ch on starting chain.

Make two side pieces for each toy so that wrong sides may be placed together in same positions.

You can lay out your own ideas on cross section paper to be crocheted in the same manner for other toys.


MATERIALS: 2 balls for body—just a few yards of color for collar and eye.

Start at foot with ch 8, 7 sc on ch. 3 puffs in next 2 puff rows. In third puff row make an inc (as in Row 10 of Humpty Dumpty Doll) and 3 puffs. Last puff row (No. 4) has 4 puffs. Make two feet,—after last sc in last puff row of second leg, ch 7, sl st to first sc in puff row 4 of first foot, then work 25 sc across legs and ch 7 to start body. Head is made separately and sewn to body. Inset piece is 3 puffs wide, start same as for feet. For collar ch 40 in color, 39 sc on ch. Fasten around neck.

The two sides of this Scottie will make an excellent Hot Pot Holder—pad each side and line with muslin—place padded sides together and stitch from base of neck, around nose and across top to base of tail.

Sew head to body as illustrated. Make second side to correspond, BUT BE SURE TO MAKE INCREASES AND DECREASES AT OPPOSITE ENDS OF EACH ROW, so that when wrong sides of work are placed in position to sew together, they will be alike and same size.

FOR HOLDER: Pad each half, then line with muslin. Press each piece on wrong side. Place padded sides together, starting at base of neck and stitch together around nose, head, and across top of body and around to base of tail.

COLLAR: With color, ch 26, 25 sc on ch. Cut thread 6" from work, thread to needle, place around neck and sew ends together. Sew bone ring to collar as illustrated.


With a crocheted inset piece to go between the sides and stuffed; Scottie is a soft, cuddly sleeping toy. Unlike so many store toys, it may be washed, blocked and restuffed when soiled. So soft it won't hurt a sleeping child when rolled on in the crib.

After making the two sides as for holder, an inset piece is crocheted to be placed between the sides to give depth and room for stuffing as follows:
Ch 8, 7 sc on chain. Repeat Rows 2 and 3 of feet alternately, until 79 rows of puffs are complete. Do not cut thread. This inset is to be stitched between the two body pieces at edge, on right side of work. Start sewing at back of neck, with end of piece so that rows may be added or taken off if needed. When exact length of inset is determined, break thread and sew ends together. Care must be taken that either body or inset is not drawn, in stitching, or stretched. Be sure when sewing that all corners are exactly opposite. Leave opening at top of body,—stuff, and close. Work collar same as for holder using 40 sts for chain.
A colored puff for nose can be worked on inset and mouth embroidered, if wanted.
