The 25 Coziest Crochet Dog (and Cat) Sweater Patterns

Astha Bhandari  - January 18, 2022

As a kid, I would beg my parents for a dog. I mean, what’s not to love about a fur baby who licks you and has the cutest nose? Also, around the same period, I had an obsession with Barbie dolls, in particular, with dressing them up. So, for my sixteenth birthday when I finally got that dog I had been asking for, I’m sure you can imagine how I combined my two hobbies. I started crocheting sweaters for my dog (and even though he runs away when I try to put them on, I know he loves them somewhere….deep…deep…deep down inside of him).

Two years later, I love making these sweaters, and my dog? He still likes to run when he sees I’ve finished yet another pattern.

In light of my two-year “making-my-dog-wear-crochet-sweaters” anniversary, I figured I’d show you some of my favorite crochet dog (and cat) sweater patterns.

Here are the 25 coziest crochet dog (and cat) sweaters
