FRIDA the rescue dog PATTERN!

Hello everyone!

I said since starting my blog that I would be publishing some free patterns time to time, so sorry I still haven’t done any, is just I am kind of lazy when I have to write these patterns, even when I am making them I just make lots of scribbles in a piece of paper, the problem is later when l try to see what it says lol

Well so finally I decided to share with all of you my personal pattern for FRIDA, one of the rescue dogs that help during the rescue in Mexico city in the earthquakes in september

My first time making a pattern for other people, hope it is easy to understand

Now with black yarn make a SP in one end of the google and make enough chains to get to the other side and SP when you get to the other side f/o hide the remaining yarn and cut the excess

DONE! pfff it took me so much time to make this pattern I don´t know how people can make these all the time… I usually just have the pattern in my head… or some strange scribbles in one note… – -;; hope you can understand it… and that you like it!
