Cut three pieces of wire, each 35 inches long, and bend each wire in half. Place one puff on the wire by threading it from the open end to the bend. Twist the wire behind the puff in order to secure the puff on the wire. Continue threading puffs on the wire, twisting the wire behind each puff.
Add eyes, ears, tongue, and ribbon as desired, in keeping with the colors of the dog.

I am looking for a complete pattern to make a Shih Tzu yarn puppy with a list of materials and length of two cardboard pieces to cut yarn. It seems others don't list the complete instructions.
The length of the cardboard measure 18cm-20cm (7" - 7.8/8 inches).
The short cardboard measures 12cm (4.7"/5")
The long yarn is about 20 times but not sure of the short. It looks like everyone is just wrapping and not necessarily counting.
If you watch this video closely you can count the times around.
You can gather most of this from this video. It is too fast so click on the little knob at bottom of screen and change playback speed to .25.
The measurements are written on the cardboard.
It tells you how many of each to make also.
I was also told that Michael's has a pattern so you might call them and check it out.
You are in luck. Right here on Thrifty Fun, they have set of instructions and answers to all your questions. You can find all you need to know on how to make your yarn dog right here www.thriftyfun.com/
Thank you very much.
I had to dig through some boxes, but I believe this is the pattern you are all looking for.
No that's not it it's on YouTube
I would like to know to get a copy of the Animal Bazaar pattern from the Coats and Clark book number Art J17 0713? Please help me. Thank you.

I posted my request, for making shaggy dog from yarn. I've gotten great feedback, but it's not what I'm looking for.
I need the pattern for a yarn dog from Coats & Clark.
Does anyone have pattern for yarn dog, without wire or other materials except eyes, nose, and tongue?
