Cute little dog coats

The red one is done in Red Heart Super Saver, nice and thick. I used a crisscross stitch and just a plain picot edging.
This second one is done with Homespun, it's SO soft and warm, he really digs it

I have a Min Pin here and a taco bell grand dog so I crochet sweaters for little ones here also. I also have a small toy poodle but he doesn't get cold with his built in fur coat.. Bet your dogs just love their sweaters.. Love the stitch detail you can see on the red sweater...and they look like they are easy to get onto the dog witch is very important lol as you know.. they are worse then dressing a newborn lol

ch 41 (for small 12-13lb dog)
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across, ch 3, turn.
Row 2: (ch 3 counts as first dc) * sk 1, dc, then dc in the sk, * repeat to end, ch 1, turn.
Continue for 27 rows in this pattern. (Ending with a sc row.)
For the turtleneck collar:
Ch 11, in 2nd ch from hook, sc into the chain and all remaining chains, at the end to join sl st two times into the main piece, then turn work and sc in back loops of the collar piece. Continue until you get to the end, sl st the two ends of the collar together.
Row 1: inbetween where the main body isn't joined work 3 sc in the edge, turn, ch 1 Row 2: work 2 sc in each st, sl st into the side of the main body, ch 3, turn.
Row 3: dc in same st as the ch(inc), *sk 1 sp, dc, then go back and dc in the sk sp.*Continue to the end and sl st into the main piece. ch 1 turn.
Row 4: 2 sc in first sp(inc), and 1 sc in each to the end, ch 3, turn (this is where I do NOT join to the main piece to make the 'arms')
Row 5: dc in the ch 3 sp (inc) and in each st to the end.
Continue in pattern for the amount of room your dog needs. Inc at the start of each odd numbered row.
When you have the amount needed for the legs, continue without inc, sl st into the main body at the end of each row for 4 rows.
Sc loosely around the main body of the piece and then do a row of simple picot to finish it off. Do the same around the 'arm' holes.
I've never written a pattern before but that's pretty close to how I did it.
