On my blog post: “Helenmay Crochet What Are You Making Next?!?!?!?” I have payment buttons for people that want me to make a custom crochet pattern or to make a PDF written pattern for one of my YouTube video tutorials on Helenmay Crochet YouTube Channel.
I was contacted by Kathy Dennis who requested a PDF written pattern for my Crochet Dalmatian Dog and Puppy Dog, which I first made in the year 2015!!! I was very happy to take on the task, especially since I haven’t made them since the originals were made so long ago! So now, there is a Free step-by-step YouTube video tutorial on Helenmay Crochet YouTube Channeland a PDF written pattern for both the large crochet Dalmatian Dog and the Dalmatian Puppy Dog! Thank you very much Kathy!
When I made the YouTube video tutorials for both the large Dalmatian Dogs and the Dalmatian Puppy Dogs, I used Effervesce yarn. If you have never heard of Effervesce yarn, it is because it is, unfortunately, no longer available. For the written pattern, I used different yarn styles to show that you can still make the crochet Dalmatian dogs using the same YouTube video tutorials that I created in the year 2015. I will put the yarn styles on this blog post for you. In the YouTube video tutorial for the large crochet Dalmatian Dogs, I seemed to skip around a lot in the part 2 of 2 video tutorial. So, I decided to make a free PDF downloadable cheat sheet that will show the times that I made the different parts for the large dog. Here is the free downloadable cheat sheet:

The Effervesce yarn equivalent that I used is from Hobby Lobby. Here is the information about the yarn that I used:
For the large Dalmatian Dogs.
- 3 skeins Yarn Bee Tender Touch “Snow” colored yarn, 100% acrylic yarn, bulky 5, 135 yards, 3oz. for the main color. I used this style of yarn for the male dog.
- Alternate yarn choice for the main color: 1 skein Crafters Secret Big Idea, 16 oz, 810 yards, medium 4, 100% acrylic yarn. I used the “Off White” colored yarn. I used this style of yarn for the female dog (You will have a lot of yarn leftover).
Here is the direct Ravelry link for the PDF written pattern:
For the Dalmatian Puppy Dogs.
- 2 skeins Yarn Bee Tender Touch “Snow” colored yarn, 100% acrylic yarn, bulky 5, 135 yards, 3oz. for the main color. You will have a lot of the 2nd skein of yarn leftover. So, if you wanted to make 2 puppies, you would only need 3 skeins of yarn.
- Alternate yarn choice for the main color: 1 skein of “I Love This Yarn” Metallic White-colored yarn, 97% acrylic/3% Metallic polyester, Medium 4 yarn, 252 yards, 5oz.
- 1 skein Caron Simply Soft Party “Black Sparkle” colored yarn for the nose, spot behind the eye, outer ears, and the mouth. Alternate yarn choice: You could also use the same colored black yarn as in the video tutorial.
Caron Simply Soft Party Sparkle colored yarn is a lot of fun to crochet with, and adds a lot to your finished crochet work!! Click, here, or the picture below to go directly to the affiliate link! Prime eligible in many colors to choose from!
