Hide Grandma, the Big Bad Wolf is here!! This is the Wolf I designed to go with the
Little Red Riding Mouse set. Granny's outfit and glasses are designed to fit this guy! Check out those patterns here or continue to scroll down this page for the Wolf pattern. There is a full video tutorial for this pattern as well. Link below!

Special notes: I worked in continuous rounds with a 3.75mm hook and worsted weight yarn. Have any questions or if you come across a mistake in the pattern please leave a message in the comment section below. This pattern will give you a Wolf about 6 1/2  inches tall depending on your choice of yarn and hook size.I made this wolf to go with the Little Red Riding Mouse set but it certainly can be made and enjoyed by itself

st = stitch
sc = single crochet
2tog = 2 stitches together
sl st = slip stitch
f/o = finish off



Supplies used:


3.7mm hook
2 different colors of worsted weight medium #4
black embroidery floss for the nose
sewing needle
yarn needle
safety eyes 7.5mm but use any size you like or use felt or yarn for eyes
small piece of red felt for tongue
optional * fabric tac

How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. For example 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.


Video Tutorial Here. Use the print friendly button at the bottom of the pattern to print off and follow along. Video is in order as follows:
    • Make the body
    • Make the head includes putting in safety eyes
    • Make the legs
    • Make the arms
    • Make the ears
    • Make the tail
    • Make the muzzle
    • Make the mouth
    • Sewing it all together

      *Please note that I chose to place the color change part of the head front and center and sewed the muzzle over the color change. This might not be the best option for you. You can choose to put the eyes in on the opposite side of the color change (the color change would be on the back of the head then). You can decide once you get to that part of the pattern.

      sl st next st then f/o leaving a long tail for sewing. Break free from beige yarn and leave a long tail for sewing. Turn muzzle inside out and knot off all color changes, making sure you knot off pairs that are side by side. Cut the color changes up shorter and tuck them inside the muzzle when you turn it right side again. Use the longer yarn tails to sew the muzzle to the face. Use the brown to sew the top of the muzzle in and the beige to sew the bottom of the muzzle in.
      Use black embroidery thread or yarn and whip stitch or wrap the top half of the magic circle that you started the muzzle with. Just wrap the yarn or thread as many times as needed to make a nice looking nose. See video if this part is confusing



      MOUTH:
      with lighter color
      make a magic circle with 7st then f/o leaving a tail for sewing. Glue on a red piece of felt after the mouth is sewn to the face.

        2. So does the outfit for the mouse also fit the wolf?

          Delete
        3. Granny's outfit was designed to fit the wolf. I'm not sure if one of the x-mas hats would fit so well, I never tried that! But the scarf will fit for sure and the cape will too

        1. yes, scroll up from this comment section and look to the right side until you see the label list. Click on "fox".. there's many free patterns in the label list :)
          To make the wolf bigger try 2 strands of yarn together or a bulky yarn with a 5.00 mm hook.

      9. hi, I love this wolf but I want to use him as a set of the three little pigs! if I use him with your little Bigfoot pig how does he compare in size? the pig seems to look quite big compared to your hand unlike the wolf, thanks

      10. Could you make an owl?

        ReplyDelete
      11. How big is the wolf? I'm trying to figure out if I need to make it bigger or not. Also I tried posting this once but it didn't show up so if this question shows up twice that's why.
