**This pattern is now available in my Etsy store!**
(see signature line for link)


He is listed as "Springer the Puppy" since Slinky is copyrighted.
Thanks for all the help and advice from my testers!


I loved the idea of a slinky crochet project. I was inspired by this question:

http://www.crochetvi...ighlight=monkey

So here is my newest pet! At one point I wasn't sure if he'd turn out, but adding eyes and ears really made a difference. I love his face! :yes

He's about 4 inches tall and 7 1/2 inches long (when not stretched out). I used about 1/3 of a tiny plastic slinky. Which means I have enough for 2 more slinky animals!

Sooo you crocheted a dogs head, legs and tail---did you crochet around the slinkey too? I think this is really cool, and was going to try and experiment trying to make one.
