Crochet Dog Patterns



Dogs are known to be man's (or woman's) best friend. And who wouldn't love to give their best friend a handmade personalized gift for the cooler weather? Animal lovers will adore this sweet crochet dog sweater pattern.

DOGGY SOCK SWEATER- Don't be intimidated by the length of instructions. This one's really quite easy.

Finished size: Approximately 12 (14-16-18)" from neck to tip of tail. These instructions are written out for a size small pup (approximately 12"). I did provide the medium, large and XL info as well, though, for those who want a larger size. For your convenience, you should highlight the size/number that you will be using throughout the pattern. This will make following it a lot easier.
