‘Raspberry Fool’ Crocheted Dog Sweater

   

The clear, bright pink of this lovely Malabrigo colorway, Geranio, took me back to a day in the summer of 1969, when my college friends and I picked buckets full of fresh raspberries on a farm in Pennsylvania. That evening, I found a recipe for “Raspberry Fool,” a deep-dish cobbler, and we all devoured it while watching the men walk on the moon and marveling at how far our country had come.

One skein ~ quick and easy!

This is my first crochet dog sweater pattern, inspired by that long-ago raspberry patch. This little item uses almost all of one skein of Malabrigo Merino Worsted (216 yards) for the medium size and is a very fast project.  Fits pups with 14, 16 or 18″ chest.

Here’s the pattern in pdf:

 ‘Basket of Daisies’ Dog Sweater

basket of daisies pdf

      

   

Sometimes the air conditioning is just too chilly for a small pup.  That’s the time to don our ‘Basket of Daisies,’ a sweet little cotton cropped sweater appliqued with knitted daisies and pretty buttons.  Perfect for a hot summer day on the back of the sofa ~ or just when you want to re-create that summer feeling.

Fits pups with 10-11″, 13-14″, 15-16″ and 17-18″ chest.

‘Furrrocious’ Dog Sweater

With Detachable Hoodie or Faux Fur Collar

Pattern includes directions for basic sweater with two hem styles, faux fur knitted collar and “fur” trimmed knitted hoodie. Optional, but recommended, fabric-lined neck.

Fits dogs with chest sizes 14, 16 and 18″.  Requires 1 skein each of Rowan Ribbon Twist and Rowan Big Wool Tuft; size US 15, 17 and 10 straight or circular needles; a dozen or so assorted buttons; optional neck lining fabric.  Click on the ‘furrrocious’ link, above.

    I just finished knitting the Little Black Dress for my sister-in-laws little toy poodle, Angel. I just blocked it, so plan to seam it up
    hand sew the pearls tomorrow. It is absolutely adorable and so quick and easy.
    I thought I would look at your lining pattern but can’t seem to locate it on your blog.

    Thank you so much for sharing.
    Regards,
    Sandy

      I love all the patterns. Made the Little Black dress but could not find anything on the lining, the sweater is beautiful, thank-you! I also started the Raspberry but mine is a soft orange, call it “Orange Shebert” ? lol

  11. 12 April June 8, 2008 at 1:38 pm

    Wow. Just love the dog patterns. Wish I could knit better than I do. Will definitely be trying to make the dress though. Thanks for the .pdf format.

    Hi

    I’ve just recieved my invite to join Ravelry today. I signed up and was looking around and found your beautiful patterns for dog jumpers……so cute.

    I’m saving up to buy a Shih Tzu dog next year, and wanted some dog jumper patterns so I could knit some for my local Dogs Trust charity, your patterns are just the thing.

    Thanks again.

    Hi,
    I just finished the LBD for my “Little Baby Dog” she looks adorable in it. Would like to make the Boyfriend Sweater. I’ve read through the directions and it sounds like it is knit in the round. Is that correct? Thanks.

    Not very good at all this! Would like to buy about four patterns for my Chihuahua – how do I go about it? Also, presumably if i use smaller needles they will come out smaller?? Maggie x

  20. 21 Kathie March 21, 2009 at 11:34 pm

    Love the little black dress! Found it on ravelry while searching for a little something for a friend’s little puppy. This will be PERFECT. Off to buy the supplies and get started–lots of colors in my stash, but it wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t black… ;-)

    Also looked around for the lining directions, but can’t seem to find it. Any clues??

    Thanks for your wonderful pattern!! I feel like a little kid at Christmas.

    I am trying to make your dog sweater, “Raspberry Fool” and I’m not understanding one of the abbreviations. It is “sk tch” at the end of rows. Could you please tell me what that means.
    Thank you
    Charlotte

  26. 28 carole November 14, 2009 at 10:15 pm

    Last winter I knitted the little black dress in red without the pearls or ruffle for my poodle and put a trim of black funfur. He would not take it off and received a million compliments. I just want to thank you for the pattern and will start a new one today.

    • 29 Cherie January 14, 2012 at 7:37 pm

      What a great idea! I bought some hot pink wool and was trying to think how to make the basic sweater and then dress it up. This would work great!

  27. 30 Stephanie Hendershot November 15, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    I am trying to make your Raspberry Fool and I can’t seem to understand the dc5tog. I looked it up on the internet and it explained how to do it, but it causes it to decrease for the next row. Could you please explain to me how to do this properly? I am trying to make this for my mother-in-laws dog. Thank you so much.

  28. 32 Tamara (HatGrl1) November 23, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    These patterns are to die for adorable! I can’t wait to knit the LBD with Pearls for my Dachshund and Chiwiener.

  29. 33 Lindsay December 5, 2009 at 9:32 pm

    For the pup squad sweater, would this work in crochet? I have to make an STL Cardinals sweater for Luke the pug… and sadly my skills are only in crocheting.

  30. 35 Chelle December 7, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    In the directions for the little black dress, the ruffles, what does M1 mean?

  31. 37 gnomes68 December 19, 2009 at 3:01 am

    I’am a self taught knitter for the past 15 years. There is always something knew to learn. My favorite yarns are, Kureyon and Lambs pride. I mostly like to make hats, baby blankets, but, now I want to step out of my comfort zone my learning to knit lace. Wish me luck on that one! I had a little yaorkie for 11 years and lost him to renal failure. Your dog reminds me so much of Big Gus. Now I have a little chihuahua named Bubba.com (no I didnot name him that). He has healed my broken heart. In fact he is asleep on my lap while I’am typing this. Well, I just wanted to say I love your site and hope to visit your shop on Etsy soon. Take care to you and your family. Rosa

  37. 43 jacqueline Luxon November 27, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    I just love your web site
    I too have a yorky – Arthur Pendragon Luxon
    I will make him the Valentine sweater next February
    I made the little black dress for a friend (but she wanted it pink as she has black and white dogs – but will give the black one to my father in law he has 2 yorkies – the girl will get the little black dress for new year and I am making the boy a white sweater with a black bow tie
    what if somebody wants me to make one and needs to pay me for it (I very RARELY knit for free – too busy) dont ever knit for money either – no body wants to pay what it is worth – anyway would it be a problem to use your free pattern to knit and charge for it ????

    dont want to get in trouble
    anyway I love your web site I will check on it often

    • 44 mysavannahcottage October 24, 2011 at 5:34 pm

      The patterns are not to be used for sale — sorry. If you want to charge your friends for the yarn, that’s fine, but as a money-making venture, I’m afraid not.

    Hi,
    After the other evening at Unwind and our conversation about pup patterns I was so happy to hear you posted it for no charge.
    The “little black dress (with pearls)” is absolutely adorable and I can hardly wait to knit it.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

  43. 50 Bertha Arnold February 22, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    Hi!!

    I found your site after looking for dog crochet patterns. I have never knitted, but your sweaters make me want to learn. Can you tell me where and how I should start?

    Thank you for the beautiful patterns, I can’t wait to learn and use them on my Maltese and Mutigree!!

  46. 53 Cindy August 22, 2011 at 1:37 am

    Love your sweater patterns. Just got a tiny maltese/shitzu mix and decided to try the raspberry fool pattern. I am having trouble with the front. I have tried to follow the directions in 2 different ways, but the piece does not look anything like the photo on the second page where it is connected to the back. I don’t know what I am doing wrong. Can you give me more explicit instructions for this part? The back turned out just right and looks so cute! I hate to have to have an unfinished pattern laying around.

  47. 54 Rhonda Blair September 19, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Thanks for taking the time to post these adorable patterns for all of us to use. RTR!

  48. 55 Lorraine Pounds November 3, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    where is the link for the ‘Raspberry Fool’ Crocheted Dog Sweater?? It’s not clickable.. :(

    • 56 mysavannahcottage November 3, 2011 at 2:46 pm

      Lorraine,

      The link is right after where it says, “Here is the pdf download.” i checked the link and it works.

  49. 57 Tiffany December 7, 2011 at 1:35 am

    I’ve been working on the “Raspberry Fool” pattern and I am having trouble with the shaping row. Do you do a certain amount of stitches for the shaping row? I’m kind of lost at this part. I know the dog is really small but it looks like there are more than 2 rows of dc for the neck part of the pattern. Please help! I’m trying to make this for a Christmas present. Thank you for the wonderful pattern.

    • 58 mysavannahcottage December 7, 2011 at 5:05 am

      After you complete the berry stitch section, you hdc (half double crochet) in each stitch across. For the shaping section, you continue hdc-ing acrosw in each stitch, but you hdc2tog the first and last stitch of each alternate row, for a gradual decreasing slope. After you complete this section you do one repeat of the berry stitch pattern (5 rows). That is the end of the back piece. If you are new to crocheting, I would really suggest you get a crochet reference book such as Donna Kooler’s Encyclopedia of Crochet, which has definitions of all the stitches used in my pattern as well as instructional illustrations. Good luck!

  50. 60 Erin December 7, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    I am making the “Raspberry Fool” pattern and I have having a problem with the pattern. When I am making the berries the width of the piece keeps increasing. What am I doing wrong?

    • 61 mysavannahcottage December 7, 2011 at 4:12 pm

      Erin, I have no idea what you are doing wrong, but perhaps you are not doing the berry stitch correctly. Again, as I tell everyone, if you are not familiar with the various crochet stitches you need to consult a good reference book or website. The berry stitch is also sometimes called the popcorn stitch. Here is a site that will show you how to do dc5tog and make the stitch: http://crochet.about.com/library/blpopcrn.htm

  51. 62 Tiffany December 16, 2011 at 4:17 am

    I am still working on the raspberry fool pattern and have finished the back just fine. I am now having trouble with the front piece. The piece doesn’t seem to fit with the back piece. I tried increasing after decreasing but it still doesn’t work. Please help.

  52. 63 Cherie January 14, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    I just completed the “Little Black Dress” sweater for my Silky Terrier. I don’t see a place to post a photo but it came out fantastically! She looks adorable. I had to look up some of the stitches that I’ve never done before (K1, M1 and picking up stitches for the ruffle were a challenge.) but once I got the hang of it, I could not put it down. I was so excited to see the finished product. Took me about 2 1/2 days . Thanks so much for the pattern. I had some pearl trim on hand left over from another project so used that and just make a double row for more impact since they were much smaller than the pearls you used. I still had some left, so added a row of pearls at the beginning of the ruffles. It is the cutest sweater!

    I love your little black dress. I plan on making it for my new “baby”, a rescue papillion who thinks she is something else. She deserves a “string of pearls” for all the love she has brought to this house. Thank you so much for the pattern!
