I have compiled 20 cute dog sweater crochet patterns for your furry friends. Choose from different styles and sizes to fit both small and big dogs.
When crocheting gifts we often think about all our family members. You can crochet cute toys for kids, hats, and beanies for husbands, or shawls for moms and grandmas.
However, we often forget about the four-legged members of the family. They are certainly just as important as anybody else.
You can make them various gifts. However, I find the most useful is a crocheted dog sweater. Not only is it super practical but it will keep your dog super warm and cozy. If you live in a very cold country a dog sweater is a must.
A cozy sweater will also make your pooch look super stylish. The great thing is you can completely customize it. I am not only talking about the size and the fit. This also applies to the color you can use or combinations of colors.
To add a special touch, you can also add crochet flowers and other appliqués. If you have a girl dog, you can also add cute ruffles to the bottom of the sweater.
20 Free Dog Crochet Sweater Patterns
I have rounded up twenty of the cutest dog crochet sweaters. No matter what breed of dog you own, you will for sure find a pattern to fit.
These crochet dog sweater patterns range from small to larger sizes. However, many of these patterns will also give you extra instructions on how you can further customize your sweater. Just pay close attention to your gauge and you can make a sweater that’s a perfect fit for your dog!
Dandy Dog Sweater
This is a super easy beginner-friendly dog crochet sweater pattern you can make for your four-legged friend.
The patterns come in three different sizes from tiny dogs to medium-sized dogs. The great thing is there is no sewing required.
You start working from neck down and it is all worked in one piece. It has a lovely ribbed collar and for the main body, you will use a Suzette stitch which is a simple combination of single crochet (sc) and double crochet stitches (dc) that makes a pretty texture.

Dog Sweater for Large, Extra Large, and Extra Extra Large Dogs
If you have a multi-dog family that includes both smaller and larger dogs, then you’re in luck! This crochet sweater for large to XXL dogs matches the small to medium dog sweater above.
This pattern shares the same ribbed collar and Suzette stitch pattern with the smaller version. But because it can be difficult to get large dogs’ long legs through the leg openings, this version includes a flap with buttons so it will go on more easily.

Easy Snowflake Dog Sweater
This cozy dog sweater boasts a beautiful snowflake design made with the tapestry crochet technique. Made as written, the sweater fits small to medium sized dogs. However, you can measure as you go and increase or decrease to fit the size of any dog.
One quick note: this pattern uses UK terms. So if you’re used to US terms, pay close attention to the Stitches and Abbreviations section. For instance, a UK half treble crochet (htr) is the same as a US half double crochet (hdc).
While you’re working on this pattern, if you need a little help with the color changes, you’ll be happy to learn that I have created a TUTORIAL FOR HOW TO CHANGE COLORS IN CROCHET. This tutorial will teach you when and how to change colors, how to avoid tangled yarn, and more.
