How To Make A Dog Sweater From A Sock

This will work best if you have a small dog. I’m not sure where someone can find really big socks to make a sweater for a larger size dog. Perhaps you can use a holiday stocking, but then your dog may be embarrassed to wear a sweater with a big snowman or Santa Claus on it.

Also, before making a sweater for your dog, you might want to make sure you use a clean sock. Your dog doesn’t want to smell like feet.

    I’m going to have to try this (sans hat, my dog hates hats). But it’s still a little too warm for sweaters.

    This is too cute - and so easy. The biggest problem with making it is to find big enough socks.

    That’s too cute.

    Now where do I find a sock big enough to make a sweater for my newfoundland?

    Also works for kittens or very small cats.

    Another inexpensive way to make a small dog or small cat sweater is to use the cuff and part of the sleeve from a sweatshirt. The cuff becomes the neck opening, and you make two slits for the legs. If you’re a neat sort of person, overstitch the cut areas to prevent unraveling. Voila!

    May i suggest using sleeves from old sweaters? There are beautiful moth eaten sweaters out there languishing for a use :) Check out large size mens sweaters for possibilities.
