Just in time for the heat wave!

I've not had time for knitting much lately. So in an effort to jump start back into knitting with a smaller project, I whipped up a sweater for my boss's dog.

It was so much fun, and so appreciated, that I think I'll make another for her other dog!

Very cute...where did you find the pattern? My daughter wants me to knit a sweater for her new puppy and I think she would like one like you knit. Great job.

Wow, that is a nice looking sweater, I love the collar and the way the body is made.
Please share where the pattern is from.

Aww so adorable! So well knit!

This is exactly what I've been researching lately, patterns for chihuahua-size doggie sweaters for my 14 yr old chihuahua 'grandson' "Pedro"! He belongs to my DS and his family! Pedro is older than the grandchildren! He is always so cold except for summer. They've put a heating pad in his dog crate, on low. The kids are excited about Pedro having some warm sweaters. I have some angora-wool blend stash yarn set aside for him! Not machine washable, true, but I think warmer than acrylic. He needs animal fiber!

My DIL is holding Pedro!

The pattern was free, found HERE (http://www.chopped-tomatoes.com/bucalicious-sweater-0). I modified it by adding 16 sts to the center ribbing so that it would fit Buddy -- yes, I made a gauge swatch...and then did the math. The dog in the pattern picture is a long-haired chihuahua, clipped short for the summer.
