My next door neighbor has a tiny little chihuahua puppy that is shivering cold all the time. She asked me if I could knit a little sweater for it, but I was having a hard time downsizing doggie sweater patterns that were going to work for the tiny thing.

Then I got the idea to just use a pattern for fingerless mitts, only adding two thumbs instead of one for the arms, and voila! :woot:
Worked like a charm!

Here is little Thumbelina in her new sweater; fits like a "glove"!

Being such a tiny little thing, the owner might need to consider having you make a couple in flouresent colors so she can be very easily spotted.

Oh that's a good idea! Caron Simply Soft Brites (http://www.caron.com/color_cards/cc_brites.html) would work well for that. :thumbsup:

Think of all the wardrobe possibilities for this tiny doggie. She can have a Fetching Sweater, and so many others. Genius. :muah:

It's so tiny! haha. Great way to advertise your knitting skills and ingenuity, I'd say.
