Free dog sweater patterns + calendar

by Shannon on March 25, 2005

If only I’d seen this in January… free dog sweater patterns! Some include matching owner scarves. I think someone might be getting a new sweater soon…

At left, the aforementioned someone. My baby, Anezka, wearing a sweater knit by her Auntie Heather (whose birthday is next week — what do you get the knitter who has everything?!) Heather has two patterns in the fall Knitgrrl book, and is quite fabulous.

Update, 24 January 2007: It seems the dog sweater calendar pattern link is no longer active, and the pattern seen above is not mine, it’s Heather’s (as I mentioned above). However, if you have a small dog, I can recommend this pattern, which I’ve knit for friends’ dogs, or this book.

I have been a lurker at your blog for a long time, but I couldn’t resist commenting today. Your dog is just gorgeous! My dog Vito has quite the crush on her.

He can be visited here:

That is quite the link of free dog sweater!

I would love to have a pattern for my overweight dachshund max. He’s supposed to weigh 12 pounds and he weighs 18. Oh well!! I love Anezka’s sweater. Is this a free pattern and, if not, how can I get the pattern?
