LUCKY, The Chihuahua


LUCKY, the Chihuahua dog amigurumi was created for my friend. Her dog, Lucky, passed away in
2012. I know that Lucky will stay forever in her heart and now, forever with her in amigurumi form.
I did not use a graph chart for this pattern. Rather, I freehanded this and had just written down what I
did. If you notice any mistakes(s) in the pattern, please feel free to message me and I will revise the
pattern as necessary, thank you!!
You may adjust the size of the dog with different sized hooks. Use any worsted weight yarn.
Please add this pattern to your Ravelry Favorites & Queue!
And dont forget to upload your finished project to Ravelry or tag #littlemeecreations in social media!

Notes & Gauge


- Sample Chihuahua measures approx. 7.25 in height.
- Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning/end of round/row, if desired.
- Work in continuous rounds, do not join or turn, unless instructed.
Gauge (tension): not important, but I do crochet tightly.
Magic Ring Alternative Method (Chain 2 Method): ch2, work 6 sc in second ch from hook, then
continue on to next round without joining.

Pattern Instructions
This pattern is designed to specifically resemble the Chihuahua named Lucky in the photo below. If youd like to
make it a single color with no design on the head, keep increasing after Rnd 4 until your desired head size, then sc
evenly for a few rounds before decreasing to finish.

Head

With white yarn, start with a magic ring


Rnd 1: 6sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2sc in each sc around (12)
Rnd 3: *2sc in next sc, 1sc*, rep * around (18)
Rnd 4: *2sc in next sc, 2sc*, rep * around (24)
Rnd 5 - 7: 1sc in each sc around (24)
*****If this is your first time crocheting with two colors of yarn, you may want to take a look at
the h el p f u l l i nk s on p a g e 2 before starting the color changes in Rnd 8*****

Flip head inside out and place safety eyes between Rnds 8 & 9, about 6-7 sts apart.
You may cut off the white yarn as the rest will only be tan.
I like to start making the snout at this point, put on the animal nose, sew snout to head and
stuff before continuing to Rnd 18 to close it up.

Rnd 18: t *sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog*, rep * 3 more times (12)
