DIY: 3 Knit & Felted Dogs Toys

I love these cunning dog toys.  All three tutorials are for knitted & felted toys.   Don’t forget to use wool yarn so it will felt.  Felted knits handle more like fabric and are more durable.  (Here are a few tutorials on felting, in case you need them: this one covers both hand & machine felting,here is a printable one on machine felting, and another on hand felting.)

First, is a great tutorial for this cute dog dumbell. It’s aesthetically pleasing and a neat toy!  I especially like dog toys that are fun for the dog, but also also look nice on the livingroom floor. This dumbell kind of looks like it could be modern art.  The pattern comes from Tara over at Tara’s Knits.

Second, is a nice tutorial for these wonderful ducky dog toys. You can use the pattern to make a mallard & a duckling, as shown, or any bird you can dream up. This pattern comes from Ever Green Knits. She has other free patterns and makes some lovely things.

Third, is a tutorial for a tug toy. It has details for a short & a long version.  You could make a nifty one using variegated yarn.
