Max's Dog Harness Crochet Pattern and Video | Posh Pooch Designs

Max's Dog Harness is the perfect little sweater harness
 for the chilly days.
It adds a little warmth, and also give your pet a 
 comforting feeling of getting a cuddle or hug, when they are feeling scared or anxious.

It has D Ring closures, not buttons, snaps or Velcro
 to get caught in their tummy fur. And the D rings make the vest portion adjustable.
This Easy Dog Harness is designed with Worsted Weight yarn (4) and can me crocheted in any colors you have on hand.
Cotton is an acceptable chose as well, but will not be as stretchy.
