Updated on June 3, 2019

Kimberly is a 19-year-old jewelry artist, soap maker, and crocheter. She lives happily with her boyfriend in northern Minnesota.

As some of you may know if you have read my previous patterns, I have a small dog named Gizmo and she gets very cold in the harsh Minnesota winters. I've made her three other sweaters so far this year, but this one is extra special. This was the first one I worked with textured stitches, which hold in more warmth. All the green areas are extra thick, and the acrylic yarn used holds in a lot of heat. Even here up north, these sweaters allow my little puppy to play outside in the snow.

For this pattern we work the body in seed stitch, which is just a combination of double and single crochets. The collar and other green areas are worked with a ribbed double crochet, alternating between front and backpost stitches. This pattern is more aimed towards the intermediate crocheter, but I will link other patterns at the end of the article so you can keep your fur baby warm no matter your experience level. Let's get crocheting!

Seam

With a darning needle, start at the top of the collar and whip stitch down to your first row of increases.

Placing a few stitch markers every 5 rows or so makes seaming this a lot easier, as you can keep better track of each row.

Legs

Work on both sides.

Tie on in the inside corner of your leg hole, closest to the seam.

Row 1- Work 1 sc in each stitch around, working in the open loops of the ch stitches. Connect to first sc with slst at the end of row.

Row 2-5- Ch 1, work 1 sc in each stitch around. Join with slst to the first stitch of row.

Tie off.

After you work all of that, now all you have to do is weave in ends and your sweater is complete!

I really enjoyed working this sweater. You can obviously do it in any colors you want too: I just really loved the contrast of such a dark green on such a light pink. It was also starting to fade into spring when I began making this, so my mind was really on flowers. I really hope you all enjoyed this pattern, and as always happy hooking!
