Happy International Dogs Day! Today I’m able to share with you a fun puppy pattern; Parsley the Woodgreen Puppy!
You may recognise Parsley from a past collaboration with Deramores back in April 2021. With the closure of Deramores (in Feb 2022) I’ve been slowly working my way through any associated patterns to add to my pattern shops, however as this was a pattern was originally designed in collaboration with a charity it’s been a bit of a different task to sort out.
However I’m now absolutely delighted to announce that the lovely folks at LoveCrafts are going to host the pattern for the Woodgreen, The Animal Charity – with 100% of sales going to support pets looking for their forever homes!
Wood Green is a pet charity that makes a difference to the lives of pets and people across the UK. As a charity they help rehome pets into loving homes and also educate and supports pet owners, so that they can enjoy a mutually rewarding and happy relationship with their pets.
The charity helps thousands of dogs, cats and small pets, many who have been abandoned and neglected, to have a second chance at happiness – and no animals are ever turned away!
If you are a crafter you can help support this charity by creating the Parsley the puppy with the purchase of the digital pattern (approx. £3.60 / $4.24 at time of posting).
For my original puppy I used Deramores Studio DK in Ebony, Oatmeal, White, Chocolate and Peridot with a 3.25mm (US size D/3) hook, however you could easily substitute with Paintbox Simply DK in Pure Black (101), Taupe (75), Champagne White (102), Lime Green (128) and Coffee Bean (110). The finished result is a lovely cuddly puppy that you can make for yourself or a loved one.

If you do make up a puppy I hope you will share pictures of your pup’s on socials using the hashtags #kcacouk and #LoveCrafts so we can share your wonderful work.
Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
