Hey friends! Thank you for having me back here to share another pattern. If we haven’t met, I’m Shehla from The Blue Elephants and I love to share crochet patterns, tutorials, and all about running a handmade business. Last time I was here, I shared a pattern for a modern hexagon baby blanket, and I shared a lovey pattern before that.

Today, I have a pattern for a crochet wolf pup that is as easy as it is cute! I use single crochets and basic increases and decreases to create all the shapes needed, and then it’s just a matter of seaming them all together. I call him Remus and I hope you love him as much as I do!

Assembling

  • With all the pieces of your crochet wolf done, it’s just a matter of assembling everything. First, add some stuffing to all the parts, except the ears. Then align the snout to the head, using the color changes as a guide and use the gray tail to seam the gray part of the snout to the head and the white to attach the white part.
  • Next, fold the ears flat and use the tail end of the yarn and a tapestry needle to sew them in place at the top of the head. With a length of spare white yarn, embroider on some eyebrows. Use black yarn to embroider a triangle shape to the top of the snout as a nose.
  • With the head done, position it onto the body and use the tail yarn from the body to seam around the base of the head. Work through each space on the body and the corresponding space on the head so it doesn’t wobble. Next, line us the arms and legs where you want them and sew them into place as well. Finally, seam the tail to the back of the body and you’re done! Weave in any loose ends and trim the excess yarn to finish it off.

  • Plushies are always a lot of fun for me to make. Even though they involve a little bit more seaming than most projects, it’s so worth it to see it all come together. I hope you like Remus, and if you make him, tag me @_theblueelephants so I can see! You can also see my other plushies and toy patterns over on my blog here.
