Crochet Dog Sweater Pattern© and it's Free!

 Free Crochet Dog Sweater Pattern©
By Connie Hughes Designs©

My puppy is very tiny in fact we thought she was 3.5lbs. 
But when we took her to the vets and they weighed her 
we found out she only weighs 2.6lbs!!
Here's my 1st puppy sweater...
this pattern is very easy and simple to make... 
I made the sweater so that there is only one leg opening...
because my puppy had never worn a sweater before...
this just made taking it on and off easier for her and for me...
she adapted quite well...if you have a short haired dog like mine...
They Will and Do Get Cold!
Gracie wore her sweater all day yesterday when we were out and about and
she didn't seem to mind it at all... I know it kept her warm...she
was ready to get out of it once we got home though.

I used a tape measure to measure my puppy. This sweater won't fit all puppies because mine is so small. But you can make one for yours by measuring like I did.
My puppy's measurements are:
7" around the neck
91/2" around the body
From the lower neck to about 3" from the tail is 6
I made my sweater slightly bigger than her exact measurements because I didn't want her to get scared by having something on to tight. If your dog is use to sweaters then make it closer to their actual measurements.

To make the Puppy Sweater: with  Red Heart Gumdrop in Cherry & F Hook
Row 1. 1sc in 6sts, ch1 & turn.
Row 2. 1sc in the BLO in 6sts, ch1 & turn.
Rows 3-40. repeat row 2
Join the 2 ends together and wk 1slst across in 6sts, ch1.
Row 42. 1sc in 42sts, you can join or use a stitch marker. I used a stitch marker because I do not like the line you can get when joining.
The ch18 below will make the leg opening.
Row 43. ch18, skip 18sts, 1sc in 24sts.
Row 44. wk 1hdc in each st (including ch18)-42sts.
Row 45. 1hdc in 42sts
Repeat row 45 until the body of the sweater reaches about 2 or 3inches from the tail.

On Saturday night we gave Gracie a bath because she was going to Grandma's 
house on Sunday and this poor little girl had a complete melt down...
she curled up in a ball and then fell asleep like I've never seen her!
