A Small Sweater for a Fur Baby

I recently finished a light green dog sweater for my youngest DD best friend's dog, Charlie. Charlie is a sweet, lovable 4 1/2 lb Chihuahua.


This was a quick, fun easy knit. I used the dog sweater pattern from Bernat http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=199, but I skipped the pocket. I really didn't think that Charlie would mind not having it.

I altered the pattern a little to suit me & the receipt. I did a 2x2 ribbing for the neck instead of garter st.

This was first time using Vanna White's yarn. I think that it was a great choice. It is a very soft acrylic yarn & it shapes up very nicely.
