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 outfit for your pup with our favorite crochet dog sweater patterns!

This sweater will fit up to a 20-inch chest, so you can make it for many different sized dogs. A combination of single and double crochet helps create a texture that’s as pretty as it is warm!

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.

7. Crocheted Dog Sweater
The basketweave texture of this classic sweater is great for style and warmth. This designer has several different custom-created dog sweater patterns, so if your dog’s measurements don’t match this particular pattern, check out the designer’s store for more options.

8. Dog’s Crochet Clothes
A poncho design is perfect for dogs who don’t want tight-fitting sweaters that wrap around their bellies. The simple design also means you can use some of your scraps to make cool stripe designs like this one.

9. October Dog Sweater Dress
Not familiar with this beautiful stitch? The sweater dress uses Tunisian crochet for a gorgeous texture that requires a special type of hook. (You can read more about Tunisian crochet here.) The dress was designed for the fall season, but you could create a color palette for any time of year.

10. Greyhound Snood
When your dog doesn’t seem to love wearing a sweater, perhaps this snood is the best option. The designer also points out that this is a great pattern for stitching and donating to your local rescue shelter.

Sometimes a simple sweater just won’t do. If your dog needs an upscale upgrade, try this coat pattern. There’s even a pattern included for a cute little matching bow!
