When one the local animal foster groups announced they were expecting their first child, a baby boy, I knew exactly what I needed to make. This little bub will be joining a family of three dogs and a cat. What could be a more adorable outfit for the little man then a puppy.
I based this set on a few patterns from others. I have the links below so that you can make your own. I based the beanie , nappy cover and booties on the Parker set by sewrella. The set on its own is absolutley stunning. The dog bone snuggle toy is a shorter version of the pattern by Sunflowers at Home.
I made the patterns for embelisments myself and have added these below. All the paid patterns I could find didnt match the set I loved or were too comical. I wanted the booties and nappy cover to be subtle, and I made an extra hat. This way there was an option to dress the baby up or have a normal set.
This pattern is written in US terminology and you will need to be familiar with Single Crochet [SC], Half Double Crochet [HDC], Slip Stitch [SL] and single crochet increase [INC].
