Crochet Queen Elsa Doggy Dress


Meet Elsa, A.K.A. Brinkley.
Isn't she adorable? 
She's not mine, pout pout.
She belongs to my cousin. 
At least I was able to borrow her to make this Frozen Elsa Dress right?


This year I am participating in the 

My daughter is totally obsessed with the Frozen movie. This movie seems to be on my mind a lot.

So when I was approached about doing a dog DIY 
I was like Bingo, I know what I'm gonna do!

I already had the turquoise yarn too, perfect!
But HA, I've never made dog clothing. 

After looking up a couple of different methods, I finally decided to give it a go.



You will need 1 skein of turquoise medium 4 acrylic yarn. 
and about 1/4 of off white 2 acrylic yarn.
I used an F hook.

This pattern is for a small dog.
however it can be easily altered to fit your little one. 

It begins around the base of the neck.

Measure the width around your dogs neck. 
This will ensure its going to fit, and not choke them.

This sweet girl measured 15  inches.

Round 1- Chain 54,  join with a slip stitch being careful not to twist the chain. Chain 2, 

Round 2- Single crochet in the next chain and in each chain around. Join with slip stitch at the beginning chain. Chain 2.

Round 3-  Double crochet in next stitch and in each stitch around. Join with slip stitch in top at the beginning chain, and again chain 2.

Round 4-   Double crochet in next stitch and in each stitch around. Join with slip stitch in top at the beginning chain, and again chain 2.

Round 5-   Double crochet in next stitch and in each stitch around. Join with slip stitch in top at the beginning chain, and again chain 2.

Round 6- Double Crochet in the next stitch and and each stitch for the next 7 stitches.

Round 7-  Chain 2 and turn work, double chain for 8 stitches.

Round 8- Chain 2 and turn work, double chain for 8 stitches.

Round 9- Chain 2 and turn work, double chain for 8 stitches. Single chain down the flap into each chain until you reach the working circle again. Single Crochet for 5 more stitches. Chain 2 and then double crochet in the remaining stitches until the 5th stitch from the beginning chain.

Round 10- Turn work Chain 2 and Double Crochet back, and stop at 5 stitches from your flap.

Round 11- Chain 2 and then double crochet in the remaining stitches until the 5th stitch from the beginning chain.

Round 12- Turn work Chain 2 and Double Crochet back, and stop at 5 stitches from your flap.

Round 13-  Chain 8 and slip stitch into the first chain of the flap. 
Single Crochet into the next 9 stitches (the tip of the flap).
Double Crochet into each stitch until reach the beginning. 

Round 14- Chain 2 and double crochet into each stitch.

Continue to double crochet into each stitch (chaining 2 at the beginning of each round).
Continue until you each your desired length.




To add the ruffles at the bottom: Chain 1 and crochet 2 double crochets and then a single crochet making a shell. In each stitch all the way around the dress you will do a single crochet and then 2 double crochets and another single. Fasten off and  weave in the yarn ends.



For the cape: 
Round 1- Skip 5 stitches from the beginning and then Single crochet into each stitch (not chain) at the top of the dress for 16 stitches.

Round 2- Turn work and chain 2, then double crochet into each chain for a total of 17 chains.
Then add another stitch into the 17th stitch.

Round 3-  Turn work and chain 2, then double crochet into each stitch. At the end of each stitch add another double crochet into the last stitch.
This will make it wider.

Continue the instructions in round 3 until you reach your desired length, 
which will probably be the length of the dress.



Thank you so much for tuning in!
Until Next Time...

    1. Thanks Julie! Isn't she so cute in it? She is only 5 months old, so still so playful and barely stayed still for the photos. But she loved her costume and never even tried to get it off.

  7. Okay-that is pretty cute, even though I'm really not into dogs wearing clothes. :) I know my friends who have dogs with clothes will love this. Especially a friend who also crochets things for her dog!
