Crocheted Items For Dogs and Cats

This is our page devoted to free patterns to crochet for pets!  If you’re like me, my sewing and craft room looks like Joann’s threw up in it; crafts, fabric and yarn everywhere!!

I’m not ashamed, and you shouldn’t be either!  Take that yarn you have lying around and crochet projects for your dogs or projects for your cats!  

You will find free crochet pet bed patterns, crochet pet toy patterns, and all things crochet for your sweetie pies!

My cats, Ginger and Cooper, absolutely love to play.  And it’s not “play”, it’s ”PLAY” in all caps!  I’ve never had pets that are so active and love their crochet pet toys as much as they do! 

Let’s talk, then, about the crochet pet toy patterns on this page.

Free Crochet Pet Toy Patterns

Your pooch will fall in love with this free dog toy crochet pattern using T-shirt yarn and two tennis balls.  Look at our page to learn how to make T-shirt yarn!

The project is super-easy, but you do have to use some muscle with assembly! 

When you finish this, your dog will have a new toy to chew and tug and fetch!

Use your T-shirt yarn to make crochet cat toys as well!  The cat toy balls have a bell and Valerian Root, a scent that cats can’t resist!  

My cat, Cooper, loves catnip; Ginger….not so much.  I found that the scent of Valerian root is something she loves. 

Make your T-shirt yarn using our tutorial above.  One T-shirt is needed for a small ball, and you will need 1 ½ T-shirts to make the large crochet cat toy ball.

Free Crochet Pet Beds

Every fur baby needs a special cozy bed to curl up in!  We have several on this page.

Are you looking for something modern and fun for your kitty?  Check out the free crochet pattern that uses cozy jersey knit fabric to crochet a bulky cat bed. 

This jersey fabric has a bit of stretch to it, so your cat can sleep any way he likes, and the bed stretches and changes shape with him!

The free crochet pet bed for your pup is a cute design….higher on one side than the other.  Dogs can curl up in this cozy doggy bed and enjoy a good long snooze.

Other Free Crochet Pet Patterns

We have different crochet dog sweater patterns that are so cute!  The dog sweater patterns can be easily altered to fit any sized dog.

Check out the crochet patriotic dog jacket pattern, too!  It’s just too festive with it’s red and white stripes going down your dog’s back and navy blue around the neck. 

Add a couple of star embellishments, and your dog is ready for the Independence Day parade!

The previous cats I’ve had in the family refused to go for a walk, but you can make the crochet cat harness leash pattern for your kitty to try out.  The worsted weight acrylic yarn that is used is both washable and strong enough for your cat walk!

Crochet Pet Patterns for Charity

Dog and cat shelters are always in need of cozy knit or crochet pet blankets to keep the animals feeling secure and safe. The pets leave the shelters with their own blanket when they are adopted, having something of theirs to take to the new home.

Crochet some of these blankets to use up that yarn you bought because it was a “good deal”, but you’ve never found a use for!

We have many free for pet crochet patterns on this page, so keep scrolling down and check them out!! 

If you're interested in more crafts for your pets, we have a general page full of pet craft ideas!
