Inspired by specific dog breeds, the Nattypat pups are here to keep you company. Each pup is a breeze to make with a single form for the head and simple moveable legs. And, using just small amounts of yarn, they are perfect stash busters too. Better yet—there's no waiting. All Nattypat patterns are instant digital downloads that come with visual aids and links to video tutorials for all required stitches and techniques to complete the project.
