People love their crafts and their furry friends. So why not bring the two together? Here’s a handy collection of free patterns for pet crafts that work well for dogs and cats. Create bedtime comfort, playtime fun, and fabulous fashion with knitting and crochet for pets.
If you don’t have an animal companion, consider making some of these crafts for animals that are in shelters. Many local shelters have request lists for some items, so be sure to check with them first before making a dozen doggie sweaters. Also, a good site to check out is the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Charity.

I’m not sure who enjoys pet clothes more–the owners or the pets. It’s probably the owners, but for smaller dogs a little sweater can help beat the cold winter temperatures. Designer Sara Sach from Posh Pooch Designs has a whole collection of patterns for dogs (and willing cats). Grab some of her free crochet pet patterns on AllFreeCrochet.
