Ruffled Dog Sweater: The Laughter Ensue’s

“Mwah hah hah hah ha ha ha….*cough….

Hah Hah Ha ha ha ha mhaw hah….”


I normally dress Darby in colors associated with boys. I think she looks particularly good in red, sho thats my favorite sweater for her. Now, Vicki (who I am knitting puppy sweaters for) is much more into the girly colors and likes her little girls to look like..well, little girls. So this is the dress for Sophie, her mid-sized pup (3-3.5lb), although I know it will fit Bella (at 4.5-5lbs it’d just be a bit short) I still need to add a bow at the waistline. This dress is based off of a design in “Posh Pooches“. When I say “based off of” I mean here’s this picture of an a-line dress in there and I kinda read the pattern, but the yarn was too small and the needles were too small and I can’t do a picot edge, so I made a dress that kinda looks like it. The pattern will be coming as soon as I type it up, but being that my roommate and his daughter will both be home tomorrow (school holiday, y’all!) I know that my only time on the computer will be after 10pm and I have work too, so it’s probably a bad idea. Must get full time job, so I can buy a laptop!


Wish me luck, I have an interview Wednesday!

Oh yeah, another view. Please note, I’m allowed to laugh at Darby as she loves me and hates trying on clothes.

  1. Oh my gosh, this is just adorable!!!!

    I tried to make a different version of a similar looking sweater, but it turned out kind of bulky and heavy, and I don’t know if Chica will wear it. Turns out that she doesn’t like clothes, and hasn’t figured out that they are supposed to keep her warm. I am anxiously waiting for this pattern, ‘cuz it’s the perfect sweater for my baby girl.

  2. would like to have the ruffled knit pattern.I am a grandma to a chihuaua ,and love to knit for therapy after having a stroke. Would like to be able to knit the outfit for her for Christmas.Can anyone help me get a pattern?

    Thanks in advance
