This is a sweater I knit for my LongHaired Chihuahua Cosmo. He's a boy, and it's hard to find good boy clothes! So I just taught myself to knit!
This one's made out of angel hair yarn, which is really soft.



Here are some of the other sweaters I've made. I like the baseball tee! The dark brown one on the far right was super fast and easy-it's made with bulky yarn and knit with circular needles. (Well, I used the 4 double needle approach.)
The one at the bottom is my first attempt at multi colored stripes. It's all done-I just have to stitch it up! It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be!!

~Enjoy!

I just looked at the pic again, and the striped sweater on the bottom looks funny! The neckband at the top of it is made of multi-colored yarn, so that's not a mistake or some weird stripe! Smiley

They look gorgeous!!  I like the one Cosmo is modelling - what a fantastic model too.  I agree, it's hard to find nice boys clothes! Cheesy

Thanks!
If anyone wants to know how to make them, I got the patterns from a great kit-it's called Posh Pooches. It's got some great small dog knitting patterns, and some cute wooden knitting needles with doggies on the end!
I got it from Barnes & Noble (they don't have it on their site). I also purchased one on EBay...yes I have two. I was afraid that I wouldn't find it at Barnes & Noble!

These are SOOOO cute! I'm going to have to make my doggy-girl one - only it will have to be crochet, because I don't know how to knit. It'll be pinks/lime, I think. Thanks for sharing the cute photos!

Yours came out so nice! I have that book, too. I made the basic sweater for Kaiser but he hates it. Sad



I think I didn't make the neck part long enough and it falls down. I got some great suggestions from the ladies in the knitting forum and I'm hoping to fix it.

Keep up the good work!

All the sweaters are too cute for words. Shocked

I agree it's hard to find sweaters for male dogs that don't make them look foolishly girly.

Much easier to make your own.
