Dog Bed Crochet Pattern -  Adjustable Dog Bed

Maximo and Rosie are getting used to their new bed.


Skill level : Easy

Materials:
Hook size : K
16 oz. of Worsted Weight Yarn ( I used Caron One pound - Taupe)
Stitch marker or 15 inch piece of a different color of yarn

Stitches :
Chain  (ch)

Pattern Notes :  2 sts = 1 inch

We will be working the whole pattern with 2 strands of yarn. I pull 1 strand from the center and  1 strand from the out side, in order to use just one skein of yarn.

We will work The center section of the dog bed  in rounds.

Pattern :

R : 1 - Ch 3, 10 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, join  with a sl st to the 1st sc to form a circle.

R : 2 - 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in each sc around.

R : 3 - 1 sc in the next st,  1 sc in the next st, * 2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in the next st, Repeat from * around.

R : 4 - 1 sc in the next st,  1 sc in the next 2  sts, * 2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in the next st, Repeat from * around.

R : 20 -  1 sc in each sc around.

 Circle should measure approximately 17 inches at this point.

This bottom section may curl some if you are a tight stitcher, if so you can block it before you start the side.

If you want the dog bed  bigger continue to follow the pattern adding increase stitches.


R : 21 - Sl st in the next st, then turn, stitching the opposite direction, 1 dc in each sc around, join to the 1st dc with a sl st, ch 2

R : 22 - 1 dc in each dc, until 20 dc are left, turn, leaving the last 20 dc un-worked. leaving a opening for the front of the dog bed.

R : 23 -  Ch 2, 1 dc in each dc around, turn

R : 24 - Ch 2, * 1 dc in the next 6 dc, st the next 2 dc together ( dc dec) * , Repeat from
 * to *  around, turn

R : 25 - Repeat R : 24

R : 26 - Ch 1, 1 hdc in dc, turn

 R : 27 - 1 sc in each hdc, 1 sc in the 1st corner of the opening, sc evenly down the side of the opening, sc across bottom of opening, then back up the other side, 2 sc in the second corner, tie off and weave in end.

If no extra rounds were added, dog bed will measure approximately 20 inches.
