Pit Bulls

deviant art dispelling myths  I love dogs. All kinds. Even pit bulls. I’ve never lived with one but I’ve liked the ones I’ve met. They’re just like all other dogs, be nice to them and they’re nice to you. And you must know by now I love to crochet dogs as much as I love to crochet cats. When I create my crocheted critters, I usually use bright fun colors, the colors the critters would be if they had a choice I always say.

The reason I bring up pit bulls is that my most recent crocheted critter is a lovable, soft, huggable pit bull. I made him by crocheting with three different shades of brown chenille and white chenille to make him sort of realistic looking. I made this cute critter for a benefit art show, Deviant Art: Dispelling Myths. The show, now in its fifth year, raises funds for A Rotta Love Plus, a Minneapolis/St. Paul Minnesota pit bull and Rottweiler rehoming, advocacy, and education organization. If you venture into Facebook land, and who doesn’t these days, click here for the event page for the show.

My one of a kind pit bull will be available for adoption at the show. I hope he finds a good home.crocheted pitbull
