Ugly Dolls Series: Lucky Dog Amigurumi - Free Crochet Pattern & Youtube Video Tutorials!


Hi there, I want to start off by saying how much I appreciate your support & love having you tag me in your projects! This pattern is for the ‘ugly dolls’ movie character “Dog” The pattern works up each piece separately, which are then sewn together in finishing (scroll to the bottom to see the video). It has been thoroughly tested & can be completed in an afternoon!

To ensure more patterns are made available from my blog & shop please share your gratitude for this pattern by letting your friends know it exists!

As always thank you again for your support along my maker journey!

Find me on Instagram!



This pattern is not intended for sales purposes, or resale. I recommend you do not sell trade marked items, but rather gift them to your family (This project series is a BIG ask from my daughter – keeping mommy on her toes). I wouldn’t want you getting in trouble because you can make something, it doesn’t mean that you should.  I hope you appreciate this gift for your littles & share with your friends!

For the Free video tutorials Scroll down to the bottom, or click the hyper links throughout the blog post!

Final measurements are roughly 2.5” tall by 3” long (individual handmakes vary)

For this project you will need:

1.    3.25mm Crochet Hook

2.    Worsted weight Yarn in 3 colours: I used Red Heart in Cornflower, & scraps of Bernat’s Super Value Yarn in the colours Mulberry & Redwood Heather

3.    Sewing needle & thread (Black and white)

4.    Scissors

5.    Felt: Black, White & Red, in small amounts.


Ch = chain stitches

SC = single crochet.

SCINC = single crochet increase (2 sts in one space.)

BLO = back loop only

sts = stitches

SKST = Skip Stitch

Inv.dec = Invisible decrease (insert hook into the FLO of the stitch, then insert again into the next stitch. SC there pulling through all 3 loops on hook)

FO = Fasten off, pull a SLST through to close off the piece/ detail.

Special Instructions:

This pattern is worked in Rows, there will be a seam in each piece (this means that each Row is finished by slip stitching the working loop to the first ch stitch of each Row - NOT continuous Rounds)

This pattern is worked in small pieces and then sewn together. Head and body are the base structures for the ears, legs & tail to later be sewn onto.  Each piece should be WELL PINNED before any attempt to sew this together.  Make sure that each piece is exactly where you want it before sewing it into place. 

The eyes are made of felt with a small embroidered circle in the middle, and the mouth is made from a small piece of felt sewn in place. Facial details can be found on Youtube here:

The Legs and the ears are a multiple of the same pattern.

I will have videos on how to get this done so I hope you can follow along & like/share/subscribe for more if you like it!
