Did you know that January 14 is Dress Up Your Pet Day? Other than a failed attempt to photograph my cats in tiny Santa hats years ago, I haven’t had much success dressing my cats. I do have the honor of dressing my mom’s dog in her winter coat when I dog sit, though.
To celebrate Dress Up Your Pet Day, I’m sharing a roundup of 10 awesome free crochet patterns!

1) I love the
Doggie Tutu by Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs! Sara includes a great tutorial for measuring your dog correctly, and the pattern is customizable to any size dog.

Rigby Scarf by Sincerely Pam is a cute kerchief available in 5 doggie sizes. It’s easy to adjust it to a larger (human) size if you’d like to match your furry friend on your next walk.

Stitch 11‘s Size Small Dog Sweater is a classic style that will suit even the most traditionally dressed dogs. Corina also has an extra small version available here.

5) If, by chance, you have a Saint Bernard, s/he should definitely accessorize with
Jennifer Gregory‘s crochet Whisky Barrel Pouch for Saint Bernard dogs. The pattern includes helpful tutorial photos to assist with assembly.

7) If you want a solid color cowl, check out
Sara Sach‘s Cable Stitch Dog Cowl with Buttons. As a button fanatic, this is definitely one of my favorites. This is also a great small project to try crochet cables!

Sara Sach shares another tutorial in her Small Dog Shrug. She demonstrates how to measure your dog so you can customize the shrug to a larger size.

9) And, if you’re looking for a more old school cowl, try
Sara Sach‘s Retro Collar. This would be a great stashbuster to use up scraps from larger projects.

10) Last, but certainly not least, is this cute dress from
