Dachshund Dog Small Charted Design

Chart is shown done as a filet crochet design but is suitable for many different needlework applications:

Cross stitch on aida cloth, cross stitch on a crocheted single crochet or afghan stitch background, crocheting or knitting the color design in on a piece, needlepoint, plastic canvas, loom beadwork or adapted for peyote and other beading techniques, pieced quilt blocks.

Printing This Page: If only the ad at the top of the page prints, try this: before choosing the Print command, click on the pattern portion of the page (tells your printer what part of the page you want to print), then choose Print. If you choose Print Preview before printing, you can preview the pages and choose how many pages to print.

The photo on the right shows this chart worked as a cross-stitch on a crocheted background. I crocheted the background in worsted weight yarn so I also used worsted weight yarn to do the cross-stitch portion (with the yarn threaded on a large-eye needle).

I recharted this dog chart from a chart in Alphabets in Crochet by Emma Farnes, Including Small Filet Designs, No copyright date in book, circa 1920 or earlier.
