PrettiPants Dog Potty Pants/Sweater

from SheilaSparkles Crochet
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : PrettiPants Dog Potty Pants/Sweater
PrettiPants Dog Potty Pants/Sweater

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Single Crochet

Pattern Description:

Come on in to my crochet design studio! Here's a useful and cute design to solve the problem of doggies who have frequent accidents in the house!

I tried every sort of doggie pants on the market and NONE of them worked! The dogs were so clever at taking them off! In desperation, I started cutting out a design in fleece fabric and voila - it worked! The dogs couldn't remove their "pretty panties."

This year it finally dawned on me, "HEY! I could crochet these!" So i got busy with hook and yarn and came up with what you see here, "PrettiPants."

I make it a point to call them their "Pretty Panties" when I put them on the dog and make a big deal out of how pretty they are. Most times, their "pretty panties" stay dry! Apparently they don't like the wet feeling when they have an accident with their PrettiPants on.

My sister suggested these would also make a great light sweater for her Yorkie furkid. That's definitely a good idea! She also suggested adding a harness loop to the sweater, and I have now included that feature in the design.

If you can do Single Crochet, you can make them yourself for your beloved furkid(s)!

Thanks for shopping my pattern store! ! I hope your furry kiddo will enjoy wearing his or her PrettiPants!

PS - if you don't crochet, email me at sheilaschnauzies@gmail.com for information on how to order a finished PrettiPants for your dog!
