Sweater Crochet Pattern for the New Puppy

Pug Puppy Sweater

Pug Puppy Sweater Crochet Pattern

Did you get a new puppy for Christmas? Maybe you’re planning to adopt a pet in the new year. It can be difficult to find a sweater for toy breed puppies. This easy crochet pattern will fit your new puppy who is approximately 2 pounds. Finished measurements are approximately 6″ length by 13.5″ diameter to fit a pug, Boston terrier, French bulldog and other similar stocky-built dogs who are about 2 months old. Remove a few stitches to make the sweater for a thinner dog such as a poodle or chihuahua. Add a few rows for a longer dog such as a dachshund. Add your revisions to the blog to help other puppy owners make their own tiny sweater.
