Pug Brooch {Free Pattern}

Who can resist to pugs? They are charming, super social, playful and loving dogs who follow their human everywhere and friendly with strangers too. 
Pug Brooch Amigurumi Free Crochet Pattern from hannicraft - Pin for later!

I wanted to come up with a pug-themed crochet or knitting pattern from a while, so now I designed this brooch for all pug-lovers out there. It is a simple amigurumi project using basic stitches,  assembly might be the trickiest part of making it.

  • 2 safety eyes with 3/16” [0.5 cm] diameter
  • fiberfill

Today we had a beautiful day, we could spend long hours in the garden. For me it was also a great opportunity to make a photo shoot of my baby wearing the brooch and playing with fall leaves.


For those who are new in my blog, I adore pugs. When we moved in our suburban home, the first thing was buy a pug puppy. Dragee was our best friend for two years and when I became a SAHM to my daughter our bond gained more strength. One month ago we lost her when the annual rabbies vaccination or the steroids she received for the adverse reactions killed her. Now, we welcomed Dragee II in our family. She is a cuddly pug puppy with lot of energy.


 Wishing you happy I Love Yarn Day!
