FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Bundle Up Dog Sweater

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Bundle Up Dog Sweater


Easy does it with this Bundle Up Dog Sweater. Perfect for your little fur baby on that extra cold day. Add a little layer of protection to their natural fur coat with this adorable and fashionable piece. I used Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran and in a couple of fun stitches-front post and back post double crochets! This coat is one of the most fun and easy projects that you can make!

There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
