Do you know what makes everything in life better? A knitted pug you can tuck in a pocket. That's totally true and you totally agree. Having a bad day? Reach in your pocket, pull out pocket pug, smile, and repeat.

These tiny pugs are perfect to give as gifts, or even to make up as party favors (if you can manage to part with the adorableness once you are finished!). And, this pattern is written line by line so you can use any weight yarn you want making for tons of pug sized options! This is a quick and fun knit and you will find yourself making a whole pack of petite knitted pugs!

Yarn:
20-45 yards of tan yarn for body, legs, and tail
10-35 yards of dark brown yarn for muzzle and ears
The heavier the yarn weight, the more yardage needed.

This pattern is written round by round so that you can use any weight yarn you want to create all sorts of sizes of pudgy friends. Try sock yarn for pocket size pugs, or bulky yarn perfect for a huggable friend.

Want this to be a prepackaged, ready-to-go project? We can make that happen! We also sell this pattern as a kit in our shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/601975451/wicked-chickens-yarn-wickedly-pudgy?ref=shop_home_active_1

Gauge: You pick! Simply knit with your choice of yarn on needles 2-3 sizes smaller than called for to get a tight knit fabric your stuffing won't show through.

Needles: You pick! A 40" or longer circular needle (for Magic Loop Method) in a size right for your yarn. You can also optionally use two double pointed needles in the same size as your circular for i-cord, but it is not necessary. See the pattern for more info.

Notions: Scissors, tapestry needle, beginning of the round stitch marker (removable or closed) and optional row counter. 22 removable stitch markers, stuffing, and a set of safety eyes and a triangle safety nose (or other eye and nose choices such as buttons or scrap yarn for embroidery).

Finished size: Your finished size will depend on what weight yarn you use. If you are knitting this pattern in sock weight yarn like the smallest samples shown, your finished friend will come out about 1.5” tall and 2.75” long with 6mm safety eyes and an 8mm safety nose. The worsted weight sample measures approximately 3” tall and 3.5” long and uses 9mm safety eyes and a 12mm safety nose. The bulky weight sample measures approximately 4” tall and 4.5” long and uses 12mm safety eyes and an 18mm safety nose.
