Subject says it all Wink When the pictures were taken, it was little bit too big for her, but now it is okay, she has grown a bit since. Here's pics:

I love it!!!!! It looks so soft and pink ... you cant go wrong with that combo. I have a female chihuahua who looks so simliar ... she is the same color and also has white mittens on her feet. I've knitted my two chis sweaters before, but I always have problems with the fit.

Would you mind letting me know where you got the pattern? I would like to make some for my pupsters.

You know you're crafting too much when you even find glitter in your cat's poop! (true story)

GinaChick: Oh, you have two chihuahuas? I love the breed, maybe I will have another one when the first one is old enough  Kiss (Shes 9 months now, in the pics she is only 4-5 months.)

This was very easy to make. The site is in finnish, so there's really no sense to link that page, but I try to translate the instructions. Hope you understand this even that I have poor knowledge of right terms Cheesy

- Make enough loops. I had thick yarn, and made 40 loops --> 4 sticks. My dogs measure around the neck is 18cm.

- Knit 1right/1wrong in circle (like you would knit socks).

- And here's some sort of tutorial:

Great job,

Thanks for the info, Terhen. That is so nice of you! I'll let you know how it goes once I get around to trying the pattern, which is hopefully sometime before it gets really cold around here!

Kisses to your pup!

That is so unbelievable cute that I have had to look at it twice today already. The sweater style, yarn and color are so perfect for your little pup. I think I am going to try out your pattern on my Devon Rex (cat).
