So the dachshunds are crocheted
For light dachshund body, apply 28 crème to cream and 6 crochet M solid. Do not crochet the 4 outer sts on both sides in the next row. Then crochet 16 R solid sts without loss and in the next row increase 4 sts both sides again and then crochet 6 more rows without any increase.
For the head, cast 17 lb and crochet 4 R sts. In the following 3 R at the end and beginning one stitch at a time (= 2 sts off together). Then crochet 3 R solid M without removing. In the following 2 R at the end and beginning each decrease 1 st.
Crochet for the tail over 10 airm 1 row of solid M in teddy.
For each ear, cast 8 air m in teddy and crochet 1 round. Crochet the ears again with a round of solid sts. Make the second ear equally.
For the darker dachshund, reverse the yarn colors and crochet as above.
Finishing the Dachshund
Close the body with the matching yarn and fill it with cotton wool or wool. Then sew all over. Now sew the head, fill also and sew on the body. Sew ears and tail. Embroider for the faces with the dark brown embroidery thread on the muzzle satin stitches as nose and put on each side a few stitches in a light bow. Embroider eyes as small crosses. The dachshunds can then be pulled together with one or two stitches by the body length quite easily and thus optimally shaped.
The small dachshunds can be decorated after the picture or discretion.
