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!!!!
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.
I begin with a chain, and from there design the pattern.
I write down the pattern in the notebook as I go.
This way I can change it,
and make marks and ideas, about the pattern as I go.
It probably looks like Scribbles to you,
but it makes perfect sense to me ( most of the time).
I always measure, over and over again. Crocheting
can be tricky and I want my finished project to fit.
Please, Add This Crochet Pattern to Your
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.
The color choices are endless!
I hope you will try this pattern and have some fun with it...
And I would love to see a pic or two!
