Making sweaters for your dog is not a good idea. Some dogs can really get cold and shake violently during the winter season. This is of course dependent on his coat. Some do coat are lighter than other dog's fur, so when you notice that your dog is suffering during the cold days, you also get some winter clothes. It may be strange for other people, but it is worth while and to take care of your part to keep your dog warm.
When considering what type of sweater will bring to your dog, go to mixed yarn that is easy to wash as well as comfortable on the dog. This can be mixed wool and cotton or acrylic yarn material. Before you start crochet, be sure to get the dog's measurements right so that the dog will not be able to pull off the shirt. A snuggly fit should be appropriate.
Patterns that can be used to make the dog shirt are most similar to the patterns used to make things for human wear. The back stitch pattern can be used, as well as the pattern for cross stitches, chain stitches, slip stitches and cable stitch patterns. You can consider your dog's coat color before buying yarn and make sure the sweater color works well with the dog's coat color. Other dog owners have also been able to add embellishments to the dog sweaters, especially for the smaller dogs. Imagine if your dog will be comfortable or not with these.
