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