The AmiDogs Chihuahua measures just under 5″ long. If you’d like to make your own, the crochet pattern will be available shortly in the store. (For those who are still waiting for the Paint Set, it should be up in the next day or two!) If you’re on the mailing list, you’ll be e-mailed as soon as each new pattern is released.

I still have a list of other dog designs to work on in future, but please feel free to comment and add your requests for more breeds!

UPDATE: Looking for the pattern? You can find the AmiDogs Chihuahua crochet pattern in my shop.
