Anubis Plushie Crocheting Pattern

Though writing is my passion, one hobby I picked up in November 2016 was crocheting. And like always, instead of starting with hats and scarves, I started with the most challenging items I could find: plushies. What can I say, I need something to keep my interest as I work. However, when I wanted to crochet an Anubis plushie, I wasn’t happy with the patterns I was finding. They were all Anubis’s were-form, and I wanted his pure jackal form. Eventually, I ended up having to create my own pattern for the Egyptian god. Now, I’d like to share what I created with other crafters who might be interested.

Note: This little plushie is 7 1/2 inches in height and 6 inches in length.
