Free Amigurumi Crochet Dog Bone Pattern: Notes

Skill level: intermediate crochet skills and knowledge

Finished size when using a 2.5mm = B/1 hook and Fine Sport #2 = 4 ply:

– Bigger bone: length – 21cm (8″), width – 9cm (3.5″)

– Smaller bone: length – 14cm (5.5″), width – 6cm (2.5″)

Terminology: US crochet terminology

Gauge (2″ x 2″): 14 rounds x 12 stitches

Notes: this pattern is worked in continous rounds, which means you will not slip stitch at the end of each round. Instead you will continue to crochet the next round in the next stitch.

Free Amigurumi Crochet Dog Bone Pattern: Materials & Tools

Yarn: this pattern will work nicely with 100% cotton, 100% acrylic or a blend of both. I recommend using Fine Sport #2 = 4 ply OR Light Worsted #3 = DK. You can also use different yarn such as Worsted Weight Yarn #4 but the size of the bones will be a bit larger.

I used the below vibrant colors but the crochet bone will also look nice in natural color:

– Fine Sport #2 = 4 ply

– 55% cotton and 45% acrylic blend

Color A:

– 1x ball of YarnArt Jeans – blue 55 – (50g/160m)

– 1x ball of YarnArt Jeans – yellow 35 – (50g/160m)

Color B used for the middle part:

– 1x ball of YarnArt Jeans Tropical – multicolored 614 – (50g/160m)

– 1x ball of YarnArt Jeans Tropical – multicolored 616 – (50g/160m)

Crochet hook:

I used 2.5 mm hook = B/1 because I wanted the stitches to be very dense so the stuffing wouldn’t come out. Refer to the instructions on your yarn label if using different weight of yarn but go one size smaller.

Tools used:

Scissors, tapestry needle, stitch marker, polyester stuffing, plastic squeaker – 33mm /1.3″ diameter (optional)

Free Amigurumi Crochet Dog Bone Pattern: Large Size Bone

Notes

– Crochet the bone in a continous round, do not slip stitch at the end of each round. Instead continue to crochet the next round in the next stitch.

– Use tight tension rather than a regular tension so you don’t have large gaps in between your stitches and the stuffing is not showing

– No special stitches needed…you will just be using the single crochet stitch (SC), single crochet increase (INC) and invisible single crochet decrease (INV DEC).

– Crochet 2 separate cups that will form one end of the bone first; join these two cups together and continue to crochet the middle of the bone, then split the round into 2 separate rounds/cups to form the other end of the bone.

– I recommend using a longer piece of string as a running stitch marker so you can easily go back and count the number of rounds. Either way, a stitch marker is a must when working in a continous round.

Crochet two separate cups using the bellow pattern – R1 to R9:

R1: MR – 6 x SC into the ring {6} – watch this step by step video tutorial on How to crochet a magic ring

R2: INC in each ST around {12}

R3: (SC in next ST, INC in next ST) x 6 {18}

R4: SC in next ST, INC in next ST, (SC in next 2 STs, INC in next ST) x 5, SC in next ST {24}

F-R68: SC in each ST around {12}

Stuff well, close the hole using a yarn needle and weave the yarn end in (Pic 12)

Watch this step by step video tutorial on How to close a hole in an Amigurumi piece

You have now finished the first cup so you can start working on the second cup:

– you will need to attach a new strand of blue yarn to R60

– and then you will continue to crochet the second cup in a continous round just like you did the first cup

Second cup:

S-R61:

– create a slip knot on your hook using a new strand of blue yarn

– go back to R60, insert your hook into the stitch with the pink stitch marker in it and SC (Pic 13)

– the stitch you have just created will be the first ST of S-R61

– SC into next 35 STs {36} – your last ST should go into the ST with the green stitch marker in it (Pic 14)

S-R62: SC in the first ST of S-R61 and then SC in each ST around {36}

S-R63: SC in each ST around {36} (Pic 15)

You will notice that you have a little gap left in between the two cups again. You should have a yarn tail left from when you attached the new strand of yarn so pull this yarn tail out through the gap so you can use it to close the gap at a later stage.

S-R64: SC in next 2 STs, INV DEC, (SC in next 4 STs, INV DEC) x 5, SC in next 2 STs {30}

S-R65: (SC in next 3 STs, INV DEC) x 6 {24}

S-R67: (SC in next ST, INV DEC) x 6 {12}

S-R68: SC in each ST around {12}

Stuff well, close the hole using a yarn needle and weave the yarn end in (Pic 16)

You can now close the gap in between the two cups: thread a yarn needle with the yarn tail you pulled through the gap and close the gap with a few stitches on the outside; weave the yarn tail in.

And that’s it, your bone is completed! 🙂
