I am happy to report, that Little Kermit’s jumper knit up in a flash. I even surprised myself and had it cast on and cast off in just one evening.
I used this pattern: Pebbles Dog Sweater. It’s a very nice little pattern – simple and easy to follow. And like I said – knit up super fast.
It’s a pattern designed for a chihuahua, and since Kermit half chihuahua, I thought it would work well. I tweaked it just a bit to make it work better with the measurements Krista sent me.
And I learned an interesting fact: Apparently, many Chinese Crested dogs have allergies/sensitivies to real wool. So I made it out of some Patons Canadiana I had kicking around the stash.
Sadly, they aren’t the best pictures… but I don’t have a dog to model it on. (And I didn’t think the cats would volunteer)
I popped it in the mail last Thursday, so Krista should get it sometime this week. I’ll shared modelled pictures as soon as I have them.

Fast AND Cute!!! Those small dogs get cold so easily.
Such a sweet sweater. That was really fast. Kermie is going to love his new clothes. I know both Lizzie and Zoey appreciate their sweaters and coast when it gets cold.
It’s perfect! Pup gets so much use out of her knit sweaters. I make them out of acrylic also so I can wash them often. Yorkies have plenty of hair to keep them warm but we keep her clipped even when it’s cold out. She’s a stinky little terrier who needs a bath at least once a week.
Looks like it will be snuggly warm.
That was certainly quick and it turned out great. Look forward to seeing it modeled.
Quick and easy knits are great. I bet Kermit will love its added warmth.
You are fast!
Isn’t that the cutest! What a thoughtful gift!
You knit way faster than me! It looks great! Well done!
