Chase is probably the best dog that has ever lived. He also manages to be the cutest. With that said he is also about a hundred pounds and a big bear of a dog…who hates the cold. Hates it. If it drops below fifty degrees…he curls up in a ball and shivers until I cover him with his favorite Tunisian knit stitch afghan. Seriously!
Sorry…I’m a big aggressive about making dog stuff. Before I forget! Make sure to share your finished pieces with me @rohnstrong on Instagram!
Many may not know this but I actually started out crocheting dog toys and blankets and selling them online! So…this is kinda cool to come back too. :-)
I scoured the Red Heart archives and dug up a few quick to stitch doggone cute projects that I think you’ll all love!
First up is this cute Hunter Dog sweater!
I’d totally make that for Chase…except the hat. He’s too sassy for a hat.
Next is the La-di-da Dog Sweater…
I mean…this is as cute as the dog wearing it! Does it come in man size?
If your dog is like Chase, they love a good blanket. A Dog’s Home Throw is perfect for cuddling up with on those chilly days!
And last…cause I know not every dog is all about the crochet. You might as well make something for yourself…
Now, before I go let me give you a few tips from an old dog like myself.
- Choose an easy wash hard wearing yarn. Cause dogs aren’t as kind to their clothes as we are.
- Don’t get attached to what you make. They’re going to ruin it. They’re dogs.
- If making a dog sweater a great wool/acrylic blend is awesome. It breathes which helps the dog regulate their temperature. They get warm too!
- Make sure you choose a color that pops…those doggone dogs like to feel pretty too!
