Crocheted Bone, originally uploaded by craftypants.

I’ve been terrible, and haven’t been crafting as much as I would want. Having a “real life” job takes some getting used to!

I did however make this wee crocheted doggie bone for my co-worker’s dog, Romeo. Here is the “recipe” since it is really just a teensy tiny modification of another pattern.

Crocheted Dog Bone
worsted weight yarn
F or G hook depending on yarn weight

  1. Crochet Pepika’s 3D Heart, but stop at rnd 9
  2. Continue crocheting in a spiral for about 10 rows
  3. Crochet another 3D heart, also stopping at rnd 9
  4. Stuff both pieces and sew together!

That’s it! Alternatively, you can crochet both halves for 5 rows after rnd 9, so the seam is in the middle. Your choice.

Romeo is a teeny timy dog, so he couldn’t chew through this thing. However, I would supervise larger dogs to ensure they can’t get to the polyfil inside.

Thanks to much to Pepika for posting the original heart pattern.

Here’s some in action pictures:

Love it!! And I’m sure my dog would as well, but I’m afraid he’d chew it up in seconds… :s Maybe it would work if made with thick cotton string or hemp…?
