Dachshund or Teckel Amigurumi, Free English Pattern


Original source
TECKEL AMIGURUMIThe teckel is made with a cotton/acrylic yarn and 2.5 mm crochet (you need a smaller crochet than that recmmended by the manufacturer of wool).. It takes two alternative colors (or more if you want to make a striped one, for example), small safety eyes, and a bit of felt to decorate.

inc = increase

dec = decrease

sc = single crochet

ss = slip stitch

ch= chain stitch

A trick that it’s simple to obtain most beautiful amigurumi is to alternate increases in the rounds. In this way the rounds are non hexagonal one.
