Chihuahua sweater

purlyman's picture

After we found our little Kenneth, a friend of mine's chihuahua passed away. He and his wife had bought an entire wardrobe of sweaters, t-shirts, parkas, rain coat, bath robe, etc. for their little one and they sent it all to us. Then... a few months later, they adopted another chihuahua so I'm trying to return some of their generosity. This is the first sweater for them. Kenneth is modeling it and hopefully it will fit ZeeWee. It's a tiny bit tight on Kenneth.

OMG! Your dog is so cute!

OMG! Your dog is so cute! I love the sweater. My girls are too damn big for sweaters; plus, they have way too much fur.

Both the color and pattern

Both the color and pattern suit Kenneth very well, he looks particularly good in a turtle neck. I think you should make him one as well.

It's loosely based on

It's loosely based on "Casey's Coat" in "Stitch'n'Bitch Nation" (pages 222 through 225). I followed it strictly for Kenneth's first sweater, but for this one I added the two-ply mock turtle-neck, a button hole on top for the leash, and the seed stitch border to keep the side and end from curling up. I think that's about it. Good luck!
