With cold weather upon us, it’s time to break out the sweaters for those blustery days. As parents, we always think of our kids and want to be sure they are warm this time of year. Many people these days with or without kids think of their pets as their children. So with that in mind, I wanted to showcase dog sweater patterns for you to knit for your fur babies this winter season.
Dog Sweater Patterns Showcase for 2016
The first sweater in this week’s showcase is this cute fair isle dog sweater by Bente Solen Torjul1. I love how they have made matching leg warmers and a hat. Not sure what dog would keep that hat on but the idea is fun. In this winter icy blue shade with a classy fair isle design it screams winter. The sweater pattern runs $7 bucks and is a size M.
There’s nothing like Burberry style for your little one. Try this Barkberry Dog Sweater Designer Inspired by My Savannah Cottage. I love plaid so I can’t get enough of this one. The pattern is definitely for the experienced knitter. With a buckle collar, intarsia knit design, i-cord, and double knitting it’s truly a spectacular dog sweater pattern for only $6.
These racing pups are a bit bigger but really need to stay warm and look great in these matching dog sweater patterns called Side Button Greyhound Sweater by Terri Lee Royea. I like the ribbed look that creates a long streamlined design that’s perfect for this winning dog. It comes in size M and L and is a FREEBIE!

Doesn’t this little guy look snazzy in his sweater designed by Helen Nemko. The pattern is great for a beginning knitter. However, it does have some basic crochet elements and is embellished with buttons. It comes in XS and S for the fur baby in your life and runs $5.50 for the pattern.
Need a sweater for Halloween try this fun Dragon Slayer design by Lion Brand Yarn. It’s a FREEBIE and looks like so much fun. Comes in sizes S and M for dogs between 10lbs-29lbs. You’ll also need double pointed and circular needles for this pattern but seems like an easy to moderate pattern.
