Click For Crochet Abbreviations List

Shiba Inu (Siba Inu) is the most common breed of dogs in Japan. A unique breed of cute dogs, hardy and playful. A dog is a hunter, a companion dog. Tie your child such a friend, and he will not part with it!

The sizes of a knitted toy depend on the chosen number of a hook and a yarn, at me it has turned out ok. 10 cm in height. 

For crochet crochet you will need:

remnants of white, red and a little black yarn (I have 100% acrylic, I decided to make a 3-color dog);
hook number 2;
safe eyes or beads.

Important: the size of the knitted toy can vary, depending on the yarn chosen and the number of the hook. 
In the original knitting details of amigurumi begins with an amigurumi ring, but I prefer to start with 2 air loops instead of a ring. Start at your discretion. 

Used abbreviations 
vn -  air loop
ss -  connecting column
sb -  column without crochet
pr - 2 sb in one loop 
yb - 2 sb knit together 

Knitting in a circle: at the beginning of each row do 1 in, at the end, close it with ss. 
Knitting in a spiral:  all the stitches are knitted in a spiral, the beginning of the row is conveniently marked with a marker or a contra thread, at the end of the part you make 1 cc. 

Note: if you have never knitted a toy with a color change, be sure to check  "How to knit two-tone toys in a spiral and in a circle" .

Ears - 2 parts


Forelegs - 2 pcs., Knit in a circle, start with a white thread 
1 row: 2 in. 6 sbn in 2 loops (6) 
2 rows: (pr) x 6 (12) 
3-4 rows: 12 sb (2 rows) 
change the thread to the red 
5-15 rows: 12 sb (9 rows) Cut the 
thread, leaving a long tail for sewing. Fill the pads with filler, sew a hole.

Hind legs - 2 pcs, knit as front, only 13 rows.

We knit the tails with straight and reverse rows. Start knitting with a white thread. 
Link a chain of 16 items. 

1 row: 15 sb, starting from the 2nd loop from the hook (15) 
2-3 rows: 1 in the rise, 15 sb (2 rows)

4-5 rows: 1 in the climb, 15 sb (2 rows ) 
Cut the thread, leaving a long tail for sewing. Tail the tail folded and sew over the edge, as shown in the picture.

We knit the nose in a circle, with a black thread. 
1 row: 2 in, 6 sb in 2 loop (6) 
2 row: (1 sb, pr) x 3 (9) 
3 row: 9 sb (9)


We sew the muzzle to the head (between the 11th and 19th rows of the head).

If you have not sewed eyes yet, sew, or you can embroider (like mine), and embroider a white thread on the edge (between the 9th and 10th rows). Sew our ears on either side of the crown, between the 3rd and 8th rows). We sew the nose - in the center of the muzzle, between the 3rd and 5th rows.

Then we connect the head and trunk.

Sew pads: upper paws so that the center falls on the 21st row of the trunk, and the lower ones between the 5th and 9th rows. 

Sew a tail to the 5th row of the trunk. Tail the tail and sweep.
