Crocheted Dog Sweaters

Recommended free sources of patterns for crocheted dog sweaters!

Patterns on this website

Pebble's crocheted sweater was made in an afternoon.

I adapted it from instructions for One-Piece Solid Dog Sweater and use buttons for fasteners.

Using the above pattern in a different color yarn, I show you how you can take your sweater and add ribbon to it to create a Christmassy outfit.

Designs from Other Websites

Crochet N More

At current count, Crochet N More offers ten free sweater patterns to crochet for your dog, included a ruffled pink sweater and red-white-and-blue patriotic jacket that looks just like a sweater.

If you're a beginner at crocheting, their Crochet Basics pages offer detailed information about crochet abbreviations and stitches.

DIY Maven

Here's a candy corn design by DIY Maven for Halloween. The instructions are for a 12 to 20 pound dog but can be altered to fit any size dog.

Note this a one-piece design without fasteners and uses only single and double crochet in the pattern.

Bobbie's Crochet Place

A pattern made for tiny dogs that can be scaled up is Bobbie's Doggie Sweater. This is also a combination of single and double chain crochet - it looks like you could crochet it in less than an hour!

Debbie Jean's Blog

Debbie Jean does not provide an exact number of stitches - so simply measure the piece against your dog as you go along.

For a pattern for any size dog worked from a different angle than the usual, check out Debbie Jean's Doggie Sweater:

  • Work a rectangular piece in single crochet that lies across the top of your dog's back from the neck to the tail.
  • Next add a side rectangle to the above to go under the dog's belly. Sew this flap to the other side when done.
  • Finally, add a collar piece that goes around the dog's neck in the same manner as the belly strap.

If you use any of these free patterns to create a sweater for your dog, we'd love photos!
