11 Crochet Dog Sweater Patterns for Your Fashionable Furry Friend

Even if your dog isn’t a huge fan of wearing clothes (like ours — last year’s hot dog Halloween costume had our black-lab mix cowering in the corner), these crochet dog sweaters just might be cozy enough to wear! Plus, these puppy sweaters range from full-coverage sweaters to smaller coats and snoods.

Find the perfect pup outfit with our crochet dog sweater patterns!

6. Brown Cape for Dogs

This sweater has an adjustable strap that goes along your dog’s belly so you can make the sweater as comfortable as possible. It’s also a great option for dogs who don’t like sweaters that wrap all the way around them, since most of the bottom is open.

    I know you and “Craftsy” are very much aware that your automated message (same message just a different name imputed) is since 2020. You have yet to resolve this issue and many others. You offer this website at such a discount but it’s not even worth the few dollars. Patterns have not been added and there is still not any modern or new classes.
