Summertime Dog Poncho Crochet Pattern

This is the perfect little poncho for when
 the weather is too warm for a sweater,
 but still cool.

 Easy to slip on and off for 
outdoor potty breaks.
It is still cool in the morning, 
here in Colorado,
so I just slip the poncho on, 
and they can go potty. 
It doesn't get in way of doing business, 
either.


We just re-tested and updated this Crochet Pattern.
