“Loaf” Pug Dog Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

I love the shape of pugs. That little loaf body and itty bitty legs is just too much!

I set out to develop a simple and quick pug amigurumi pattern that epitomizes that adorable loaf shape. But I soon realized that all animals are cuter in loaf form. By changing up the yarn colour, and a few changes here and there, you can loaf-mode any creature.

Below I have the instructions for the loaf pug. However, I would LOVE to see your creative loaf pets made from this pattern. Comment below or share your loaf animal on Instagram (remember to tag @sirpurlgrey)! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Materials:

Yarns – Main colour (A), Ear colour (B), small amount of black for the nose
8 mm safety eyes
polyester fibrefill
size 7 (4.5 mm) crochet hook
yarn needle
brown felt (cut two small circle shapes)

Abbreviations:

ch = chain
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
inc = single crochet 2 into the same stitch
dec = decrease over next two stitches (single crochet 2 stitches together or use invisible decrease)
sl st = slip stitch
