Zero the Ghost Dog

IMG_20151113_141409

Again, couldn’t find a pattern to quite fit what I wanted so here is my Zero lovey. I wanted to write down the pattern because many people seem to want zero and I forget how I did it before… Also, I’m going to use typical amigurumi method and way of writing the pattern.

G and H hooks
Orange, white and a little bit of Black yarn (or black 9mm safety eyes)
Polyfil
Darning needle
Stitch markers

With Orange and the G hook
