Knitting Toys: Dog to Doghouse

If you're looking for new a knitting project, consider knitting toys like this reversible dog to doghouse that will have you saying Bow WOW!

| January 2014

From the amazingly imaginative mind of author and knitter Susan B. Anderson, comes a knitting book solely focused on creating “Reversibles” — knitted projects that are two toys in one. Topsy-Turvy Inside-Out Knit Toys (Artisan Books, 2013) contains step-by-step instructions for knitting a collection of toys that, in one easy flip, become brand new characters for child’s play. The following excerpt will show you the basics of knitting toys, featuring the Dog in the Doghouse.

You can purchase this book from the Capper’s Farmer store: Topsy-Turvy Inside-Out Knit Toys

Knitting Toys: Dog in the Doghouse

I love that saying about someone being in the doghouse. Whether your dog in the doghouse is a person or an actual dog, you’ll enjoy making this quick-knit project. Feel free to change the colors of the doghouse, the dog, or both to best represent the dog in your house. Any worsted-weight yarn will work just fine to make this knit toy.

And, instead of appliquéing dog on the front of the house, you can personalize your doghouse with your favorite canine’s name.

Because the love of dogs is universal, this toy will bring a smile every time. Make it for the dog lover of any age in your life — or for the person you constantly have to “send” to the doghouse!
