Herbie the Basset Hound and other Dera Dogs

I love yarn and I love using Deramores. Not only do they have amazing wool bargains, they also have some fabulous patterns and kits. I’ve made some of their Dera dogs before, wait, I’ll show you one of mine later, but here is their latest addition, Herbie the Basset Hound and he’s way too cute not to share.

Herbie the Baset Hound from Deramores.

I love him, and I’m so tempted to buy the kit. You can get the digital pattern for just £1, the pattern and yarn for only £8.87 (10% off at time of publishing this post) and the pattern, yarn and stuffing for £12.80. How can you resist? Problem is, I’m more of a crochet person than knitting, but it’s certainly made me think of picking up those knitting needles again.

Other Dera Dogs

The Dera Dogs are growing all the time and you can make so many different pooches. Some knitted some crochet. Here are a pick of my favourites. (And they are all 10% off at the moment.)

  1. The variety and charm of the Dera Dogs collection, offering both knitted and crochet options, cater to different crafting preferences. It’s delightful to see such a range, from Herbie the Basset Hound to Dakota the Dalmatian, allowing for personalized choices in yarn craft. The dilemma between sticking to a familiar craft like crochet or venturing into knitting for these adorable patterns is relatable. If crochet is more your preference, Poppy the Poodle and the three-dog crochet kit seem like great options. As for a favorite, it really depends on personal taste and crafting comfort – do you lean towards the intricate detailing of a Dalmatian or the classic look of a Poodle?
