New Chihuahua Clothes By Yourself - Knitting A Sweater

June 27, 2011

Now, we continue with another one Chihuahua sweater pattern that you can knit by yourself to gladden your little pet this winter. Sweater is suitable for a Chihuahua or other tiny dog.
This will fit a dog weighing between 3 and 6 pounds.


Hook: Size G.

Yarn: 4ply worsted weight yarn.

Stitches used: ch, sl st, hdc.

Difficulty: Easy (since there are no leg holes to shape)

Chihuahua Clothes SweaterRND 1: Using a G hook ch 40, join with sl st being careful not to twist the chain. Ch2, hdc in next ch and in ea ch around. Join with sl st in top of beg ch2. Ch 2. DO NOT TURN

RND 2 -7: Hdc in next st and in ea st around. Join with sl st in top of beg ch 2. CH2. DO NOT TURN

RND 8: Sl st in next 10 sts, ch 2, hdc in next 19 sts (20 including beg ch 2) ch 2 TURN

ROWS 9-13: Hdc in ea hdc, ch 2, TURN.

RND 14: Hdc in ea hdc, ch 10. DO NOT TURN. Join with sl st to opposite side of row just completed, ch 2

RND 15: Hdc in ea st and ch around, ch 2 DO NOT TURN

RND 16-17: Repeat Rnd 15.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

You can use a 4 ply worsted weight yarn. To make this smaller or larger use the same directions but use a smaller or larger hook. A smaller hook and sport weight yarn will make a smaller sweater also. If one needs a longer sweater extra rows/rnds can be added in rows 9-13 and/or rnds 2-7 and/or 16-17.

If the neck part looks like it might be too tight to add a couple of chains to rnd 14.
