We love: pet patterns
We love our furry friends more than we love ourselves. This week, we are celebrating the bond that we share with our pets with these crochet pet patterns from our huge pattern library.
Every pet needs a bed, so why not crochet this bed? It measures 18.5 inches (47 cm) across, perfect for a cat or a small dog, but could easily be modified to make a larger bed. It’s a simple project with a comfortable result! The designer recommends Rowan Creative Focus Worsted, which is as strong as it is soft.
Just like every pet needs a bed, every dog needs a bone. This super simple, personalized bone uses US crochet terms (Confused? Check out our handy conversion table by clicking here). You’ll need some worsted weight yarn like Universal Yarn Classic Worsted, some toy filling, and a G-6 (4 mm) crochet hook.
This cat toy measures about 3 inches when finished. You can fill it with a jingle bell or catnip, whichever entertains your feline friend more! Don’t miss out on this free pattern – you’ll need some King Cole Splash DK yarn and a size D (3.25 mm) hook.
Ooh, another free pattern download! This super sweet sweater has instructions for sizes to fit nearly any dog, and it’s simple enough for a beginner to tackle. It uses Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn, a workhorse yarn that can stand up to whatever Fido gets into!
We love these little mousies! Perfect for cats everywhere, this pattern includes a detailed picture tutorial and measures about 4 inches long (excluding the tail) when finished. The designer used Rowan All Seasons Cotton, a worsted weight yarn.
This free pattern is perfect for dressing up your pets for special occasions. The tie features a pet-safe velcro closure at the back that will release if the tie gets snagged – pet safety is important to this designer! She recommends Rowan Kid Classic for this super simple project.
