Fire Hydrant | Free Crochet Pattern

Thank you for sticking around and reading my patterns right here on the blog, without copy/pasting. When you stay here to follow patterns, I am compensated for my time and energy.

I had so much fun last week designing Fuzz, my new little puppy, that I decided he needed some accessories. His first accessory is his very own fire hydrant. This is a fast pattern, and a great addition to any dog’s toy box.

I mean, what dog doesn’t need a good hydrant?

Cut yarn. Thread needle through back loops of remaining 6 stitches. Pull tight to close. Flatten bottom. Using same yarn, thread up through round 21 to round 16 (from bottom to top of the flattened bottom). Thread down through next stitch. Continue around to permanently flatten bottom of hydrant.

Repeat sewing around top “lip” of hydrant by threading yarn from round 11 to round 15 and sewing between them. See video for clarification.

    Hello. I just finished my fire hydrant! Not as good as yours, put pretty good. I’ll tag you in the Instagram post I’m going to do.

    I found a couple small errors.

    After the (sc, dec) 6 x
    It doesn’t say to then do 6 sc

    And also on the side piece, on round 2, I believe it should be increase around 6x

    Thanks for the pattern! 😁
