Who would have thought that the patterns and master classes of clothes for dogs would become so popular! However it is. Here you have several options at once. Even just reworking old clothes.
Those owners who dress dogs for a walk know that there should be several things. This is especially true of autumn and winter.
On walks, dogs run, jump, sometimes fight. They do not cherish their clothes, which become wet, soiled and torn. In the rainy season, it is necessary to wear a new thing for every walk, because the former one still dries after washing.
I don’t wear my dogs, but I had to think over the outfit of my girlfriend’s pet. Her dog is quite large, Doberman, but freezes in the fall and winter.
Unfortunately, not everyone is friends with needlework, and everyone wants to dress their pet cheaply. I want to offer for your consideration the most simple knitted things for dogs with their own hands. Some of them can be made even by those who do not know how to knit. I hope that everybody knows how to hold a needle and thread in their hands and to at least somehow wield them.
Red blouse from the old hat.
This blouse is suitable for small dogs, the back length of which is equal to the length of the old hat. In order to make such clothes, you need to take an unnecessary hat and unzip it from above. You get something like a pipe.
Those who know how to knit at least a little, can tie a mouth with a rubber band. Those who do not know how to knit can either sew to the neckline of the old sweater, or simply fold it along the edge and sew it, and skip the band, tape, cord inside, in order to tighten the neckline.
When the neckline is finished, you should try on a sweater on the dog and mark the places where the front paws begin. Take off your pet sweater and make slots in the intended places. The cuts should be either crocheted or needled. The edges of the slots do not tighten.
For larger dogs, instead of a hat, an old sweater or jacket is taken and dog clothes are done either their sleeves (you get two things at once) or from the front and back, but without sleeves (the neckline will serve as a cutout for the front paws). If you take a thing with a clasp, you can simply and easily put a jacket on the dog, and then fasten it.
For those who are able to knit at least a little, I present the following model.
For the manufacture of such poponki fit yarn residues of different colors. The more residues there are, the brighter and more elegant things you will get for dogs with your own hands.
You start to knit from the neckline and knit a strip of length equal to half the neck circumference. Throw knitting on the spare needle, do not close the loop.
Then you knit the exact same strip and attach loops to it with additional knitting needles. Between the loops of the strips, additional loops must be collected so that the product does not converge with a corner on the neck. How much additional loops you need will depend on the yarn thickness and the neck volume of the animal.
We connected two strips, and then knit directly to the very beginning of the tail. Close all the loops.
Now knit belt. It passes under the front paws and its length is equal to the chest volume minus the width of the popon. The belt can be immediately tied up in a bun, or it can be tied separately, and then sewn. If desired, you can sew only one side of the belt, and the other buttoned or velcro.
We make a fastener of a mouth. The neck can be buttoned, buttons, velcro or buttons, for whom it will be more convenient.
For those who know how to knit, I suggest creating a beautiful jumper.
Gray cardigan with red stripes
We begin to knit with a gum neck. The rubber should be double (fold in two) for density. Place the seam on the side of the product, so it will be easier to tie.
When the neck is connected, divide the loop in half. Knit separately in front and back.
As soon as the length of the parts is equal to half the volume of the front paws, we join them in front of the back and knit further with one cloth. The seam will be on the side. We continue to knit.
For boys: we close the loops on the stomach as soon as the canvas reaches the important place, and we continue to knit the canvas on the back before the tail begins.
For girls: knit fabric to the base of the tail.
We collect loops on the slots for the paws and we knit a rubber band with a turn. Close the loop.
Jumper ready. For reliability, you can skip the braid or string on the neck, then to tighten it around the neck.
Dress for dogs
The dress fits exactly like a jumper, only a hem should be knitted at the hem: knit two from one hem and knit further in a straight line. The product can be tied with a yarn in a contrasting color for beauty.
Knitted pants for dogs
If you wish, you can knit and pants. To do this, make cuts for the hind legs. They are performed in the same way as for the front. The cuff-elastic band joins the cuts.
The last two photos for those who know how to sew. We sew on the pattern, there should be no problems here.
Coat for dog on the pattern
I hope that I helped a little those who want to do things for the dog with their own hands.
