LEGS (Make 2)
Using white yarn,
Ch 10
Sl st to join the first chain and the last chain (10)
R1-4: Sc 10 (10)
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. Sew the leg to the foot using the yarn tail that is attached to the foot and sewing it onto the opening of the leg that does not have the long yarn tail. The leg is not centered on the foot and will naturally be offset to one side of the foot just like how human legs are naturally positioned. After the legs are attached, place Snoopy’s torso on a surface as if he is sitting down. Place the legs on the body to gauge where they might look best before you sew them onto the body. Alternatively, you can sew on the legs beneath the body to make it look like he is standing up, but the doll was not designed to stand upright. Sew on the legs with the long yarn tail attached to the legs.

TAIL
Using white yarn,
R1: Sc 5 in a magic ring (5)
R2-4: Sc 5 (5)
R5: Inc, rep 5 times (10)
R6: Sc 10
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.
Sew the tail on at the center of Snoopy’s back.

DOT ON THE BACK
Using black yarn,
R1: Sc 6 in a magic ring (6)
R2: *Inc*, rep 6 times (12)Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.
Sew the dot at a center point in Snoopy’s back, between the tail and the head.

COLLAR
Using red yarn,
Ch 18
Fasten off, leaving a medium tail. Wrap the collar around Snoopy’s neck and tie two knits to secure. Hide yarn tails between the chains using a darning needle. Clean up by cutting off the ends of the yarn that can’t be hidden.

MOUTH (optional)
If you would like to place a mouth on your Snoopy, use black yarn to sew a line across the underside of his snout, just below his eyes. Snoopy is already an iconic and recognizable figure without his mouth, so you can choose to omit this portion, since placement may be difficult.

  1. Thank you for sharing this pattern. If I may, I would offer a suggestion. On the ears, starting at row 3 the count is a little off.
    In the pattern it says: R3: SC 7, inc, rep 2 times (18)
    It should read: SC 7, inc, SC 6, inc (18)

    On the second side of the ear after the first inc there is only 6 more stitches left. It doesn’t add up even. This affects the rest of the rows as well.

    It still works and looks good. This might be confusing to beginners.
