Crochet Patterns for Dogs

One of my very first crochet designs was this Paw Print Pillow Cover and the inspiration came from the king of our house, Charlie, a Bernese Mountain Dog, who is very particular about his pillows.

Dog with Paw Print Pillow Cover Crochet Pattern

Since then, I’ve been a little obsessed with designing free crochet patterns for dogs. Charlie likes to test out all my patterns.

Since not all dogs love pillows as much as Charlie, I’ve scoured the internet and put together this ultimate collection of crochet patterns for dogs so you can find ideas for what to make for your dog (or someone else’s dog).

What to Crochet for Dogs?

If you are wondering what to crochet for dogs, you can crochet dog bandanas and beds for your dog (lots of wonderful free crochet dog bandanas and dog bed patterns are included below). Depending on your dog’s preference for clothing, you could also make your dog sweaters or hats.

You do want to ensure that anything you crochet for your dog is safe and that the item won’t get torn apart from your dog’s chewing, which could be very unsafe if swallowed. For collars or bandanas, it’s important to never leave a dog unsupervised while wearing them. Please take extra precautions to ensure whatever you make for your dog is safe at all times.*

What Supplies Do You Need to Crochet for Dogs?

Most patterns for dogs use basic crochet supplies such as yarn, hook, measuring tape, yarn needle and scissors. There are some patterns, such as dog beds or pet stairs that may call for foam or pillow patterns that may call for a pillow insert.

What Can I Crochet for a Dog as a Beginner?

Making items for dogs is a great way to learn crochet – the recipient usually does not complain! Crochet dog bandanas are good patterns for beginners such as this Crochet Dog Bandana, which uses an easy granny stitch and this Tuxedo Dog Bandana, which uses very simple stitches.
