How I Design a Crochet Pattern &
A Free Leg Warmers for Dogs Crochet Pattern.Many people have asked me how I come up with all my fun and sometimes crazy ideas for Dog apparel. Sometime I get suggestions, and sometime I have ideas swimming around inside my head. When I decide on a specific idea, I usually draw a very rough picture. In this blog we are going to Design Leg Warmers for:
Maximo and Rosie..The world's Cutest Dog Models!!!!
|A rough drawing of Leg Warmers for Maximo & Rosie|
I am a visual learner, some would say "an artist", but looking at that drawing, no one would say that now. But anyway, I need to see it on paper to see what I want to create. As you can see I also take a few measurements. I then decide what stitches I want to use. Since these are very small, I decided to use Single Crochet. I want them to be stretchy so I an am going to stitch the rows Vertically.

Pattern for Dog Leg Warmers:
Skill : Extremely Easy
Hook : H
Worsted Weight yarn (I used Assorted Red Heart Yarns I already had)
Single Crochet (sc)
We will be stitching through the back posts in order to give the leg warmers a ribbed look.
This pattern will fit about 6 inches around and 5 inches in length. Depending on what kind of yarn and how tight you crochet will determine fit. You will need to measure your dogs front legs.
R - 1 : Ch 13, starting in the second ch, 12 sc, turn ch 1
R - 2 : 12 sc, turn, ch 1
R - 3 - 12 : Repeat R- 2
R - 13 : Repeat row 2, fold leg warmer in half to form a tube, and sc evenly up the side to close the tube. Then sc evenly around the top to form an edge. tie off.
