17 Patterns: Crochet for Pets

17 Patterns Crochet for Pets

Don't forget about your special four-legged friends, they need crochet patterns too. Crochet for pets is something that's one of a kind; they'll be the envy of all their friends. I recently became a dog owner; I've never had one in my life until I got married and man was I in for a surprise. Who knew how much work really goes into having a dog, I certainly did not. Ever see the movie Marley and Me? Yep, we have that dog, only he's half Husky half Shiba Inu, very smart and very stubborn. If I didn't think he would eat it I would love to make him a crochet pet pattern. I could picture him wearing a cute little crocheted outfit or crocheted bandana. For now, I can just dream about these fun crochet patterns for pets.

Don't miss these free crochet patterns for collars, clothing, toys, and more. Your pet will look oh-so-cute in any one of these homemade crochet designs. Try a fun  dog sweater crochet pattern to keep your furry friends warm in the fall and winter, or stick with fun accessories like bandanas and fun collars. 

Crochet for Pets: Collars

Easy Shamrock Dog Collar

There are all kinds of animals out there that people can have for pets; some of the more unique pets I've heard about are parrots and monkeys. Please don't get me started on how some people have ferrets or mice, I just don't get it and ewww. The more common pets people have are the four-legged pets such as cats, dogs and rabbits. All cats and dogs should certainly have a collar on with their name and a phone number if they ever get lost. Here are some super cute free crochet patterns for collars.

Crochet for Pets: Clothing

Mock Turtleneck Sweater for Cats

During those colder winter months, you might find that crochet for pets is just what they need to keep warm, a nice little outfit or hat. I think it's so adorable when you see a tiny dog walking around with a sweater; they can be fashionistas too! Besides, when you crochet for pets you make the pattern with love knowing they'll look great in it.

Try a crochet dog sweater pattern for man's best friend and keep him warm on your daily walks. 

Crochet for Pets: Toys

Dog Bone Applique and Toy

Crochet toys are great for pets! They're small and quick to work up, and you can use some stash yarn to create them. Since they don't take up that much yarn, they also make for inexpensive pet toys so that if your dog or cat destroys one from playing too hard, you can easily whip up another.

Several of these projects are from Sara Sachs, the talented owner of the Posh Pooch Designs. She must have the most patient chihauhaus in the world. As for the kitty turtleneck, I remember trying to wrangle doll clothes onto an uncooperative tomcat without much success except an arm full of scratches. The toys Ill make, the clothes Ill take a pass on.

Hi I made the crochet dog sweater for both my dogs, I turned one into a tuxudo and the other pink and pearls, I will down load photo for u . My first ones ever and so brill. Thanks so much

I agree with racheltaiken. I love ferrets especialy snowy little white ones. I think someone should design fancy little collars for them and sweaters. Can't you just see a ferret running through the house with crocheted pink and white striped leg warmers? How cute.

I really don't appreciate the authors comments on ferrets. I own 1 and have had 3 others. They are very sweet, smart and intelligent. They were actually trained to hunt for rats in England. They are not even related to rats or mice. They are actually a member of the otter family. Ferrets are just as smart and trainable as your family dog. Yes, they can be potty trained AND trained to walk on a leash. I know this website is about crocheting, I am an avid crocheter and actually own a small business selling my projects. I check this website almost daily. I don't mind if people have their own opinions but I'm sick of people thinking ferrets are bad animals. It's just like thinking Pitts are bad because of their breed. Know what you talking about or I'll ewwww your website......thank you

I to agree rachelaiken, well said and yes I can imagine a little Ferret running down the hallway wearing a crotched little jacket. Real cute to say the least and yes, a real smart animal to. Happy Crocheting and cuddles to your lovely little ferrets xoxoxox

Do you have a crochet sweater pattern for a ferret? If you do I'd appreciate it. Thank you.


I havae made little summer singlet style shirts for wee dogs made from baby singlets and with a little stitching it any they fit perfect.

Oh and has anyone made little 'raincoats' for small dogs from Baby Bibs. Works a treat and looks soooo cute to. Get the rubber/plastic typed backed ones and WHALAH a little raincoat for your 4 legged little pooch.
