The patterns use a variety of basic crochet stitches such as slip stitchsingle crochet stitchdouble crochet stitch, and post stitches. Be sure to grab a tape measure and get your pup’s chest measurements and length and read the pattern’s sizing notes carefully so you pick a cozy sweater pattern that fits your fur baby best.  

Many patterns use budget-friendly yarns like worsted weight acrylic yarn, which makes a dog sweater a great make on a budget.  Make sure to work a gauge swatch and adjust your crochet hook size if necessary to get the correct sweater size.
