Add This Crochet pattern to Your Ravelry Favorites.

Skill : Easy

Materials:
Crochet Hook - H
Yarn - Worsted Weight( 4)1 OZ Red, Blue or What ever colors you want.

Slip Stitch ( sl st)
Double Crochet ( dc)

Sizes- These are approximate sizes
XS- 2-5 lb dogs ( S-6-9 lb dogs, M- 10-15 lbs dogs)

Notes:  The neck ties are make to be short and tied in a permanent knot.
 I did this so the ties will not come untied, or get caught in the legs or nails.  

Also be careful about the length of your cape, as they can
 spin to the front, and get caught in the legs and nails, if they are too long.

R : 1  - Starting with the neck ties- Ch 52(61,72) Sl st in the 2nd ch from the hook,
sl st in the next 17(20,24) chs, 1 dc in the next 17(20,24),

Which Red Heart Yarn, I can not decide? | Posh Pooch Designs

Here is the Issue.
I just found out these 2 yarns, 
and few more, 
are on there way to 
my house this week.
So, I have decided to design a
 new dog Sweater Pattern
But, I can not decide which yarn to use.

I haven't decided on a "design" yet,
But I am thinking Spring-Summer.

I love icelandic because it has a beautiful
ocean waves sort of vibe to it.

But I absolutely love 
black and pinks together, 
and the shades of the Panther pink. 
I really love using Red Heart Super Saver
 for making and designing 
Dog sweaters and things.
 It is durable, washable and 
comes in so many fun 
colors and variations.

If you want to soften it up, 
just wash your item, 
on gentle with a little fabric softener.
I always sun dry mine, But you can 
put it in the dry if you like.

Soooooooooo,
Which Would you pick and way?

Leg Warmers For Your Dog Free Knitting pattern - 3 sizes | Posh Pooch Designs

Now Maximo can go outside and go potty, 
and keep his legs warm.

He hates the cold and sometimes will 
not go out side. We get a lot of snow,
 and snow drifts,
 And these legwarmers are the perfect 
solution for cold dog legs.
The yarn is
Sock yarn (1)
I really love the striping effect
 this yarn has. 

I designed this yarn in 3 sizes,
X Small, Small and Medium
for Dogs 2-20 lbs
But it is easily adjustable to any size dog.


Legwarmers For Dogs Knitting Pattern
By Sara Sach

Please add this pattern to your Ravelry Favorites.

Skill - Easy

Materials -
Knitting Needles - 4,  3.50mm
Yarn - Sock Yarn (1) .5 to 1 oz depending on size
          I used Red heart - Heart and Sole

Stitches -
Cast On (CO)
Bind Off ( BO)
Knit (k)
Purl (p)

Sizes - XS (S, M) 
These sizes are approximates, as all dogs are shaped different.
             X Small- 3.5 x 3.5 inches - 2-7 lb dogs
             Small - 4.5 x 4.5 inches - 8-12 lb dogs
             Medium -5.5 x 5.5 inches - 13-20 lb dogs


 Note- These are very stretchy, and easily stay put on your pets legs.
So do not be afraid to make them smaller then you think.

Pattern - CO 20 ( 24,28)

R : 1 - k2, p2, Repeat across row

R : 2 - k2, p2, Repeat across row( ribbing)

R: 3-20 (24, 28)  Repeat R : 2

R: 21(25,29) BO

Sew Closed the side of the Legwarmer,
with the ribs going vertical.
And That is it!
You are basically making a ribbed Square,
 the sewing the sides together.
They are so fast to whip up, that
you can make a set of 4 in one evening.
They are very stretchy because of the ribbing.
They slide on and off super fast.

Kitties In A Row Tote Bag Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

I Love This stitch Pattern. 
It is fun to crochet 
and looks really cute when it is done.
But because I have and
 love Chihuahuas,
 I decided to call it 
"Chihuahuas in a Row".
 Just kidding. 

You will see I didn't stitch my tote bag up 
in the traditional way of 
doing the "Kittens in a row" Stitch pattern..
I changed colors every 2 rows,
 not every 3 rows.
You know me,
 I like to change things up a bit.

I Love These Bright colors too!
And the yarn is Redheart Supersaver.
So it can be washed easily.

I really do think they look like 
Chihuahuas in a row!

Spring Colors Cowl Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

I was looking through my Yarn Stash
 and saw these 4 colors of yarn
 laying next to each other in a basket.
Lavender, Pink, Medium Blue and White, 
and wished I had a scarf, cowl or shawl 
to wear in those colors for Spring.
I usually go for Bright colors, 
but really loved the way these 
4 colors looked together.

I designed a Lacy open worked Cowl,
that is perfect for Spring.
 It can be worn several ways.
Draped,     Long or
Off The Shoulders.
And I added a Big Loopy Flower.

Spring Colors Cowl 
including the Big Loopy Flower
Crochet pattern is now available in an
