pug nose tutorial

When I wrote the Pug pattern, I couldn't think of a better way to describe how to shape the nose, other than "fold it up between the eyes and stitch in place." I'm really a hands-on type of teacher, so I find it much easier to show how to do something, rather than write down how I did it. I think most people who make this toy don't even bother with this step, and their pugs look just fine. But in case any of you are wondering what the heck I meant, here's a video tutorial that will hopefully clear things up.

If you don't have this pattern, you can purchase it on Etsy or Ravelry. It's also included in the new edition of Fuzzy Knits (Rav link).

Woot! I looked at the noses of real pugs and that is how I did it for my pug.

Whoa - Anita - how COOL was that graphic! And Barbara - you're going to think I am SO weird, but I love you, love you, love love love. Every time I see a new fuzzy blog on my Reader, it makes me feel like I got a present. I love being taught. And I love buying your patterns for myself - and for my friends.

thank you SOOOOO much.

Thanks so much for the great video! I've made 3 pugs now and wasn't sure how to stop the nose from sticking out. I can't wait to try it again with the new tips for the nose!
