    These are stunning!

    I wonder if you would be able to help me- we lost my grandfather less than 2 months ago, and I just found out that my grandmother’s dog passed last night 🙁
    I love to crochet, but not clever enough to work out patterns by myself. I looked for a pattern on here for a Lowchen dog, but couldn’t find one. Could you please let me know if one of these are close enough and perhaps how I could adjust it to make it look the same?

      Hi Rosana, thanks for reaching out and I’m sorry for your loss. The best best would be to reach out to the maker directly, Tatiana of Amber Craft Store: — I really hope she can help you. Best of luck.
