Making a Dog Coat?


Does anyone have a pattern for a Greyhound dog coat? It could be knit, crochet, or sewn. Greys have a different shape compared to most dogs with their deep chests and long torsos. My boy is very tall and about 80 lbs. Much thanks.

If you can get your dog to stand still for a moment, take his measurements and add extra inches to the pattern so it will fit his long slender body.

Hello all! Just wanted to put my 2cents in the pot! For bigger doggies, I have a black lab, the legs of a pair of sweatpants work great and last a long time. Cut the legs off at an angle, the elastic at the bottom goes around the neck, pull down to the legs, cut leg holes, make sure to not cut the doggie, stick legs thru, it should angle down the side of the back legs and the point is at the end of the back at the tail.


I always keep extra fabric between the neck and front legs so that in case they get fiesty and stretch it. Sweatshirt arms are great for little doggies... you don't have to sew them, but you can if you know how around the leg holes and back ends

I just bought a dog coat pattern (10 different coats, 4 knitted and 6 crocheted), at JoAnn Fabrics. It shows how to measure the dog to get the coat to fit, and then gives a scale for the blocks for 12 sizes.


It is book #934, Dog Sweaters to Knit & Crochet, from Leisure Arts. Don't know the price as I bought several items.
