DIY Crochet Dog Blanket

My dog loves blankets and she always has one. She usually destroys them quickly because not only are they a snuggling companion they are also a toy.

My Boston terrier, Millie, is a crazy little thing who loves to play and destroy. She is good at that destroy part. She has always had a blanket and I love making them for her. I have made them with yarn in the past and also fleece. I just recently crocheted seven for her out of extra yarn I had around the house.

I did not follow a pattern to make these blankets. I used a 6mm hook and make a chain at a length I thought was appropriate. I then hdc (half double crocheted) the whole whole blanket and at the start of each row chained two. If you are a crocheter then hopefully that makes sense. If not, then you will have no idea what I am talking about.

The point of this post is to show you how to use what you have to make things you can use and need. I will never spend money to buy her a pre-made blanket because she will destroy it. What I will do is use resources that I already own to create her something. I now have no extra yarn sitting around my house. Which actually feels weird to say because I usually always have yarn. I think the blankets came out adorable and they will get good use.

Are your crafty and resourceful? I would love to hear any projects you do with extra materials laying around your house!

    Ohmigosh!!! Couple of things–1) I love this! The blankets are too cute!! 2) I love the concept of using what you have instead of running out to the store for materials or for a blanket 3) I’m sure your dog loved it even more because it has your scent on it. I used to know how to crochet when I was a kid but I haven’t done it in forever. I really do envy people that can make such nice things like this!

      Thanks for the sweet comment. She loves to destroy them more than anything, but I can’t complain. They keep her occupied. If you ever want to learn to crochet YouTube has amazing tutorials.
