I lololol. Mutt mitts! I never thought of it, but you're right. It is basically a fingerless glove with holes for the front legs.

Mutt mitts. I thought I should patent the name. Chihuahuas are such a pain, they need sweaters but finding a pattern to fit them or figure out how to make one from the patterns that tell you how to fit them was impossible for me. It made a fun project for some left over yarn. Maybe I'll make a couple more. I'm thinking of a ribbed collar that is open at the front this time. The turtleneck was cute but DD said it was hard to get on.

Here's a really easy crochet dog sweater pattern. The hardest part is getting the dog to wear it. This is the best pattern I ever found. So simple and will fit those hot dog body Corgis.

Edit: Emmi uses a 9mm size M crochet hook. This is the Susan Bates Crystalite hook. I have these. The sizing is different after a size K. In a Boye and other hooks, this would be a 9mm size N. Susan Bates is the oddball. A Susan Bates N hook is a 10 mm, which I believe would be a P in standard hooks.

Cute dog sweater. And if someone likes it (and I bet someone will), they'll measure their dog and see if it fits. Dogs, like people, come in all sizes, so any size should work for some cool dog somewhere!

A former coworker has a chihuahua, and they used an old sock for a sweater--worked great. In fact, in addition to keeping the dog warm, it acted as a doggie straight jacket, too. The dog would be bouncing off the walls and acting horrible. Then they'd put the sock on him, and immediately he'd mellow out!

Perhaps you could market your dog sweaters as both a coat and a behavior modifier!?
