Here's a pattern complete with pictures:
I am looking for the pattern to make a shaggy dog. It is in Coats and Crafts #Art j17 Book 0713. It is titled Animal Bazaar Book. There is no wire is in this dog. I am desperate to find either the book itself or at least the directions to make the dog. He is so so cute. Thanks to anyone who can help.

Check etsy.Com/it's a place where crafters sell there wares. It works like ebay. So go to the site and put the pattern number in and see if they have it.
I posted my request, for making shaggy dog from yarn. I've gotten great feedback, but it's not what I'm looking for. The one I'm looking for is from a pattern, and it's only yarn, no coat hangers, or nothing. It is made just by lying out a lot of yarn, and tying string to form the legs, and a ball for the head. The yarn is clipped for the bangs that cover the face down to the nose, and it's shaggy all over, a little longer than your hand. It is so cute!

It also works for a long coated ram. Unless you mean just using yarn, this would require a lot of yarn, make as to do a doll's hair. (04/11/2008)
This may take a little practice so have patience when bending your wire. Then take you yarn and a piece of card board about 3 inches wide. Wrap your yarn around the card board about 6 or 7 times. Being careful slip off the yarn and tie in the middle with another piece of yarn. Make your tie off long enough to tie to your wire hanger. Tie this to the wire form. It will take many, many of these to form your dog. As you tie these on you will see your dog take shape. You can use those wiggly eyes they have in the craft department just glue on. Good luck and I really wish I could find my pattern to copy and paste here, but as always, I can't find it when I need it. (04/11/2008)
Anyone who is interested can email me through this site, with Yarn Dog in the subject so I don't delete it, and I will attach a picture and the pattern for you and send it to you. Harriet (04/13/2008)
I saw a picture of a shaggy dog made of yarn at this link. It is from a pattern book put out by Red Heart in 1992. It has instructions/patterns for 20 yarn-based crafts (None involve knitting or crocheting. They are made around pompoms and various wrapping methods.) The person owning this book has it for sale at the link. I will try to add the picture I saw below. (05/27/2008)
Does anyone have pattern for yarn dog, without wire or other materials except eyes, nose, and tongue?
I need the pattern for a yarn dog from Coats & Clark.
