Petey Pug Puppy (Free Crochet Pattern)

by - February 05, 2015


I find pugs to be adorably and oddly charming, and I'm quite certain I'm not alone!  There's not a single animal lover I know who doesn't think, "awww!" when they see these cute, wrinkly-faced critters!  Thus, I've designed this little puggle, whom I've named Petey!  (Yes, for alliteration purposes, this pug puppy's name had to start with a P!)

If you're a pug lover or know of someone who is, this little guy can surely be a great addition to have!  I'm sure he'd lighten up any office desk, bedroom, or softie collection!

Please find the free & original Sweet Softies crochet pattern below.  Happy crocheting!

NoteThe heart pattern is free and from K and J Dolls Blog.  (I wish I knew how to make a smaller heart, though, because it would be cute to see Petey holding the heart between his paws!)

  1. I made this and found that the head is much larger than I anticipated. It doesn’t look right. Did anyone else have problems with this?
