Jake the Dog Free Crochet Pattern

Jake the Dog Free Crochet Pattern

This is the second pattern in my Adventure Time collection! Jake the Dog is Finn’s inseparable brother and best bud, so I knew I had to design the pair. Check out the other patterns in the collection for Finn the Human and Lumpy Space Princess.

Jake’s pattern works up very quickly because there is zero colour-work!

The Details

As usual, this pattern is made in the same style as all my patterns with some small exceptions! The body is worked in separate pieces worked in flat rows and then joined together to give them that unique 2-D look. The legs, arms and muzzle are worked in the round. This amigurumi has 7 separate pieces, not including the eyes.

The finished measurements are approximately 14cm/5.5″ from the top to bottom.

Let’s get started! (Or Pin/Shop for later!)

Arms:

Using 2.75mm hook, the arms are worked in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every row.

Important: you may need to use a chopstick or the back of your crochet hook to stuff the arm because it is quite narrow. Be sure to start stuffing after the first couple of rounds and top up stuffing after every couple of rounds as you go.

Rnd 1: MR 4 sc (4 sts)

Rnds 2-11: Sc 4 (4 sts)

Tie off. Repeat for second arm.

Legs:

Using 2.75mm hook, the legs are worked in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every row. Start in black.

Important: you may need to use a chopstick or the back of your crochet hook to stuff the arm because it is quite narrow. Be sure to start stuffing after the first couple of rounds and top up stuffing after every couple of rounds as you go.

Rnd 1: MR 5 (5 sts)

Rnds 2-13: Sc 5 (5 sts)

Tie off.

Move on to final assembly below!

Assembly:

Step 1: Face

First, we need to attach and stitch on our facial features to the front panel.

Cut out two circles of white felt measuring 19mm across and two circles of black felt slightly larger at 22mm across. Position the white circles onto the black circles so that they are lined up at the top. Stitch the white felt onto the black felt using white sewing thread and a sewing needle. Stitch the eyes onto the front panel by stitching down the black felt using black sewing thread and a sewing needle. You can also glue the eyes down if you prefer!

Next, flatten the muzzle and position it between the eyes (it will overlap the bottom of the felt eyes a little bit). Stitch in place using the main colour yarn by picking up stitches on the back of the muzzle. Tie a knot on the back once finished to secure.

Finally, using black crochet thread, make several stitches around two stitches on the muzzle to create the nose. Stitch a smile onto the front panel between the muzzle.

Step 2: Body

Here are the pieces you should now have at this step.

Jake the Dog

First, cut four lengths of main colour yarn about 12″/30cm long each and set aside for later. Place the two body panels together, matching up all sides.

Make sure the front is facing you as you crochet around the outside.

Starting on the left side, at the top of the head, begin attaching the panels together by single crocheting around the outside of the panels.

Crochet down the body until you get to the bump for the ear. Work 3sc into the same stitch for the ear.

Insert an arm between the panels just under the ear and, using a length of yarn you set aside earlier, stitch the arm in place by stitching through all three layers, the front panel, the arm and the back panel. Once secure, tie a knot and hide the yarn tails between the panels.

Continue crocheting down the body. When you get to the arm, simply crochet in the stitches of the front panel only, since this small section is already sewn shut. Continue crocheting both panels together as usual when you are past the arm.

Stop before you reach the bottom. Insert the first leg and secure in place the same way you did for the arm, using a length of yarn that you set aside earlier.

Continue crocheting around the bottom of the panels. Stop before you reach the other side; insert and stitch on the second leg.

Continue crocheting up the other side. Start stuffing the body.

Insert the arm the same way you did for the first. Continue crocheting up the body, stuffing as you go. Be sure to work 3sc into the ear bump.

Keep stuffing!

Continue to crochet across the top of the head, topping up stuffing as you go. Be sure to push the stuffing up into the top of the head.

When you are satisfied with the stuffing, close with a slst to first st. Tie off. With your tapestry needle, poke the yarn tail back inside the piece.

You’re done!

  1. Amei a possibilidade d fazer estes personagens, porém a tradução não é bem clara..tem q melhorar pois há termos q não se consegue identificar o significado. E isto atrapalha até para fazer a compra de pdf, pois comprar e não conseguir executar o crochê por não entender, é inaceitável. Melhora na tradução já😉
