AmiDogs Miniature Pinscher pattern

For my last design in 2008, I wanted one more small dog to complete my ‘mini’ set; a breed with a distinctive look to complete my trio…

The Miniature Pinscher is adorably also known as the ‘Min Pin’ – how cute is that?! My Min Pin is just over 6″ long and worked in worsted weight yarn and an E (3.5mm) hook. You could also make a one-colour Min Pin by just omitting the colour changes.

And here’s the complete AmiDogs Set 4 (Chihuahua, Miniature Pinscher, and Pug):

The Set 4 patterns are available individually for $4.50 each, or $11.25 for the set of 3 – all available from the store right now!

    I love your crochet min pin. Do you sell the finished product?

      I’m afraid I don’t have time to accept commissions for finished items based on my patterns, but some of my customers do: you can find the list of customers who sell items based on my patterns at Maybe you’ll find one of them who has what you’re looking for in stock, or can custom-make it for you 🙂
