Meet Carlton the Striped Pup
Whoa! What a puppy! Carlton measures 18″ long (10″ seated) and is an awesome way to use up your leftover yarn… since you can stripe him anyway you’d like! (detailed striping instructions included)
When you’re done, you’ll have a pup you’ll love to cuddle! The adorable hand-painted eyes are available from Suncatcher Eyes.
For this pattern, you’ll need 700 yards of worsted weight yarn in 3 (or more) colors, plus 10 yards of white yarn for the eyes. For the sample, I used lots of different yarns, grouped into 3 color groups. Great way to use leftover yarns!
This pattern can be used with any weight yarn, but plan on using more yardage for bulkier yarns.
