Snoopy Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Dec 18, 2020

Everybody loves Snoopy!

There is something so reassuring about this timeless character. He has always a simple piece of advice for all the the little and big problems of our everyday life.

Snoopy's the best mental coach of our century, he inspires and encourage you to be yourself.

My husband has always been a huge fan of The Peanuts gang, and Snoopy in particular.

When he was in elementary school, he used to have a Peanuts branded pencil box, composition book, backpack... you name it!

When I started to crochet amigurumis, one of my husband's suggestion was to make a Snoopy doll, as he thought the Peanuts would be something both children and adults would like.

In fact, one sweet lady reached out to me after she saw my Snoopy doll and asked me to crochet the entire Peanuts gang! I had so much fun designing all the characters!

It took me some time to crochet all the 12 characters, but she was so happy that she sent me a picture of all of them proudly displayed on her desk.

She is a true Peanuts fan!

If you are also a Peanuts fan, here are the instructions to crochet the most famous beagle in the world...

Let's crochet Snoopy and have some fun!

could you be missing some dec? row 6 has 7 total dec so 34->25 should be correct. and row 7 has 8 total dec so 25->17 should also work. i've not done the pattern yet but i keep seeing comments on this. as long as the legs don't look too wonky i'd say dont stress <3


Oh my goodness! I'm so glad you're willing to share this. My maternal grandmama was a huge Peanuts fan, sadly she passed away almost 2 years ago. I thought I'd crochet Snoopy for my mother this year.


Does anyone have any suggestions for the legs? Particularly row number 6 and7.
