What you need to know

Delight children with Val Pierce's lovable French Bulldog knitting pattern, best suited to advanced beginners.

Small, playful and simply adorable, it’s no surprise that Frenchies are one of the most popular breeds here in the UK. We think designer Val has perfectly captured their cute looks and fun-loving spirit, and our little pup has the added perk of being perfectly house-trained! The pieces are easy to knit, and you can always choose your own collar colour just for fun, but don’t rush the making up stage as this is where you can give your doggy his character.

Top knit tips


Use a smaller needle size to prevent the stuffing from showing through your stitches.

Be sure to use toy stuffing that has been certified by safety agencies so that it won’t contain any nasties. It’ll also be flame retardant and can usually be machine washed. Sew on all the pieces really securely, going over your stitches several times, if needed. Take care with the buttons and sew on the felt eyes rather than gluing, if giving the dog to a young child.
