A New Crochet Doggie Sweater for Betty

Last autumn I made a light blue mohair crochet sweater for my best friend’s dog, Betty. I was petsitting for her again recently and decided she needed a second sweater in a darker blue.

I love the bulky blue boucle on her but I kind of regret adding the yellow trim. What do you think?

  3. Just love this doggy sweater. Cute dog to. Is this a free pattern, if so how do I find it.?

  4. LOL, shouldve waited for he page to download, thanks found it on Lionbrand and must say your version slightly altered as I read is just lovely. Colour makes all the difference to when it comes to making them.

    • @Loweja I was just going to re-post the link to the pattern. I love tweaking patterns to suit my own style – it’s one of the best parts of crochet because you can be creative without having to pull inspiration out of thin air!

  5. I think the yellow trim give it pizzazz! It’s also nice without the trim, what did Betty say about it?
