My 1st Crochet Pet Garment

A dog sweater!! Oh my… And I don’t even have a dog. In fact, our household is petless. I made this for a friend’s goat. Don’t laugh. They need to stay warm too.

It’s for this one. The one without a sweater. Can’t let him be known by the other “kids” as the one with no fashion sense. 🙂

Since I don’t have a doggy model, I bought this stuffed animal yesterday at Kroger. Droopy. Look at those eyes.

He will be busy as I plan to crochet several more of these sweaters. Hopefully I can find some different patterns on the net. Slim pickings. I searched. I may have to design my own pattern.

This is the pattern I used.

Sweater is created in 2 parts. A long piece that starts with the neck. Then a triangle under body piece to sew in. I used Red Heart acrylic yarn in a mix of black, gray and white. Hook H.

    So actually it’s not a dog, but a goat sweater. How cute!
