Free Dalmatian Puppy Security Blanket©

Free Dalmatian Puppy Security Blanket Pattern©
By Connie Hughes Designs©
Here is the pattern for the little Dalmatian Puppy
that is on top of the Granny Circle Security Blanket.
I had a medical procedure done this Friday.
 So with my recovery time I decided to update and add
the Puppy Pattern to my Dalmatian Security Blanket
See Below under the 3rd photo!

I have a soft spot for Dalmatians...we had one for years
until she passed away a few years ago!
We still have her collar and leash hanging on the
hook in the garage!
 The blanket part is the same as the free pattern...I just
changed colors...down below is the link to that free pattern!

To make the Head: with White Yarn & F Hook
