Santa Paws and Frosty Nose are brothers. But do you know how they got their names? Like all Shiba Inus, Pawsy and Nosey are “spirited’ and loyal, with a tendency to guard their humans. But there’s one thing that sets these brothers apart: every winter, the brothers give away their treats, old toys and spare blankets to the less fortunate dogs in the neighborhood. The brothers—both of whom were adopted from an animal shelter by their human parents—know that winters are harsh for those who are homeless and every single act of kindness, no matter how small, helps. And because they have such big hearts, they are known as Santa Paws and Frosty Nose.
On cold winter nights, the brothers put on their Christmassy capes and hats and leave the warmth of their home; they go around the neighborhood carrying gifts, blankets and warm food, looking for their street dwelling canine friends. And every time they come across a cold and hungry animal, the brothers make sure he has a belly full of warm food and a warm blanket to keep away the cold. ❤️
Now, a bit about the pattern. Santa Paws & Frosty Nose stand 12cm without the hat—and 16cm with the hat—when made with sock weight yarn and a 2.5mm hook. The difficulty level for making the dog is “Easy”; for the accessory [i.e. the gift box], the level is “Intermediate”.
If you are looking for a cute, quick and easy Christmas themed amigurumi pattern that can be finished in a couple of evenings, and can be used either as decorative pieces or made as gifts, this is the pattern for you. 🎄
I hope you enjoy making Santa Paws and his brother Frosty Nose. Their pattern is available in my Ravelry shop.
Happy hookin’! ❤️
