Two of my friends have a dachshund that they absolutely adore. So I made them dachshund related Christmas gifts. I was planning to create a pattern for the dog, which is about an inch long, but I had such a hard time with making it that I couldn’t keep track of the stitches. I made the dog of embroidery floss using a size US 14 hook. I had a hard time seeing the stitches and kept having to rip them out. The overall product turned out really cute!
