2024 Pet Appreciation Blog Hop

The 2024 Pet Appreciation Blog Hop has ended, but you can still find the crochet patterns that were a part of it below.  You will find Free and Paid crochet patterns that are designed just for your fur-babies.

This year’s and last year’s Pet Appreciation Blog Hop had such a great response that I decided to make this an annual event!  There will be more pet patterns to come in 2025’s Pet Appreciation Blog Hop!

The post contains affiliate links that appear at no cost to you.

May 5-11, 2024 is International Pet Appreciation Week.  Our pets bring us so much love and companionship all year round.  I know my cat Maze and my son’s dog Freyja mean the world to me.

Below you will find 21 crochet patterns you can make to show you appreciate your pets and to return the love to your pets!
