AmiDogs Border Collie crochet pattern

First pattern of 2011! Actually, this is a bit of a cheat – this was a commissioned pattern that I completed in December, but I haven’t found the time until now to list it in my shop.

AmiDogs Border Collie marks the 18th breed in my AmiDogs series:

You can vary the angle and height of the ear crease to make your ami collie match any special Border Collie in your life, and I also give pattern modifications if you’d like to make a Border Collie with fully erect ears.

Now, this should be the point where I say “and with this 18th design, that means AmiDogs Set 6 is now available to purchase…” but that’s not the case, because all my amigurumi (including the 3 dogs in question), my light tent, and my prop box including the grass and sky backdrop, are all packed away. So, there’ll be no Set 6 multipack for a while at least, until I can take the group photo of them all together!

BUT all is not lost! You can make a custom set including all the breeds who will make up Set 6 (American Akita, Greyhound or Whippet, and Border Collie), or any 3 other breeds of your choice, for the same price.

So you can grab the individual Border Collie pattern, or, to save money, buy him as part of a custom set of any 3 AmiDogs patterns.

Hope you like my collie!

    How large is your border collie finished? What size yarn is used for this size?

    I have friends who attend school at Texas A&M University and I would really like to make them a border collie, which is their mascot. (named Reveille) However, I need to know the skill level required for this project before I purchase. Help me out?

    • June said

      Alyssa, it’s all made with single crochet stitches (the most basic crochet stitch), with increases and decreases for shaping, and occasional colour changes. You’ll need to know the magic ring, how to change colour, and the invisible decrease – luckily I have video and photos tutorials for all those, should you need help with them 🙂
