I’ve had a lovely response for all the deradogs I’ve made for the lovely people at Deramores – thank you very much. If you remember we’ve had a Poodle, a Schnauzer and most recently a Spaniel. Well I thought today I’d share with you the last three pups of the pack!
The other dog breeds I’ve been happily hooking are a French Bulldog, a Pug and a Rottweiler. The first dog I made was Rocky the little Rottweiler pup – all puppies are cute when they are little but have you seen images for rottweiler puppies? Cuteness overload!!
As I was designing these little dogs I did some research on them all and I thought I’d share a couple facts with you. Did you know that Rottweiler’s were original bred to drive cattle to market and they often used to pull carts for butchers because of their large size.
I don’t know whether I’ve mentioned it previously but every little dog includes the details for a removable crocheted dog collar – fastened with a little button (you might just be able to see it on the photo of Rocky above).
Next we have Pugsey the Pug with his short muzzled face and his curled tail! Pug’s for me will always make me think of the fictional dog Little Willy from the BBC soap opera EastEnders (anyone else remember him?).
What I like about pugs is that apparently they have a great sense of humour and like to show off! And I know you totally wanted to see his curled tail, so here is his behind!
And last but certainly not least we have Buster the French Bulldog with his pointy alert ears. Historically this kind of dog accompanied English lacemakers to France, where they acquired the ‘French’ moniker. I think therefore it’s very suitable that this breed has now been immortalised in crochet – just keeping it yarny!
And now for the exciting news! I’ve been told that Deramores are launching on TV at the end of July on Create and Craft show. On the 28th July at 9am there’s going to be a showcase of what Deramores designers have been up to and the deradogs are going to be featured! I can’t quite believe that one of my designs is going to be on TV!!
The show will also feature other fab designers like Emma Leith, who is doing a main interview slot about the 4 Seasons Deramores Crochet Along, and will feature designs from crochet and knit designers Zoe Potrac, Nicola Valiji and Amanda Berry.
If you want to watch the show can find Create and Craft TV on the following channels and devices:
- Sky 683
- Freeview 23
- Virgin 748
- Freesat 813
- Apple TV
- Amazon Fire
But back to the dog crochet patterns. All three dogs are available in a pattern together in my Designer Shop where you can purchase just the pattern, or the yarn kit to make all of the dogs.
I hope you like all the new additions to the pack, and out of interest, if I were to make some more dog breeds in the future to join the Deradog clan what breeds would you most like to see?
Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
