Bubble Dog Toy




      Even puppies need something to play with. I made this for our dog, and he absolutely loves it :)

     multi-color worsted weight yarn
     * I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Banana Berry for my project.
     stitch marker
     squeaker noise maker
     stuffing material
     yarn needle
     scissors

Abbreviations Used:
     Rnd(s) --- round(s)
     ch --- chain
     sc --- single crochet
     st/sts --- stitch/stitches
     sc2tog --- single crochet 2 stitches together

Notes:
     --- Be sure to move the stitch marker up as you complete each round.
     --- Squeakers to place inside the toy can be found at craft stores and large pet supply stores.
