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.

1. Cut on all of the dotted lines.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. This is adorable, will try it on my shipoo. If it works I will send you a picture.
