Approved by Chihuahuas! Reviewed by Dar Brown on 2012-11-12 *****
I didn't have any bulky yarn around, so I held two strands of worsted weight together (black and cranberry). Using the size 13 needles suggested, my gauge came out a little smaller than that of the pattern: 4 st = 3-1/4 in. instead of 4 in.; finished sweater was 16 in. @ chest and 11 in. long. Made it in one evening, and fits my 12 lb. chihuahua/Jack Russell perfectly! --Darla in California

To allow for the dog's harness to be worn under this thick sweater, which then enables attaching the leash, I made an opening about 2 inches from the bind-off edge in the centre of the back by casting off 4 stitches and then casting on 4 stitches on the next row.

Just finished making this sweater from left over yarn - was real quick and fits my Chi perfectly - was a little nervous re fit since first doggie sweater I have made!! Just in time for chilly nite - think will try another one with suggestion of making higher neck/adding cable down back for more interest - thanks for pattern!!

I just finished this today for my 10lb chi min pin. I followed the directions but mine fits loose at the back end. I think I will add a button on strap underneath to make it fit tighter.

This turned out pretty cute for my mums reindeer chihuahua. And it knit up super fast. Hes sporting it right now and is super comfy.

Just finished stitching this together for my boxer Heidi. The pattern was easy...but due to the boxers large chest cavity and muscular legs compared to other dogs, I had to remake the belly piece larger and it doesn't lay flat against her chest. But should still keep her warm. I did mine in the colors Grass, Fig and Blossom. Going to make one for our Beagle next. We will see if it fits his body shape better.

I made this yesterday and it is lovely, it was for my friends whippet and he loves it too. Now I am making another one and adding a cabled stitch pattern on the back part so doggie can have a smart one for his Sunday outings.
Very quick and easy to make, thanks for the pattern.

Super easy pattern, completed in one evening!! I did one in small for my 5 month old cavapoo puppy and adjusted it smaller for my friends King Charles Yorkie. They look great!!

I normally don't dress my dogs, but I made this from leftover yarn for our 8 year old Scrappy. It's very easy to knit,a nd easy to slide on to the dog, He actually loves the sweater, and as it on right now for the Colorado Blizzard. It was so cute and so easy that I just made one in solid purple for my 10 week-old Fiona (8lbs). I made a size small and it is pretty big on her now, so I don't think it would work well for a toy breed.

I haven't tried it yet, but it already gets five stars from me because the instructions are very understandable and it's done in two pices. I don't mind to do a little sewing. :)
