A Wee Knit for a Wee Pup

We got a puppy and he is straight-up adorable.

This is Louie. (Middle name: CK). He’s a chocolate Havanese, and we’re in love. He’ll be 13 weeks old tomorrow, and he’s already learned how to sit on command, lie down on command, and use the bathroom on his potty. He’s a whip-smart little dude!

Evidence of his intelligence: he’s also a Tigers fan.

I made him the first dog sweater I’ve ever made:

I made this for him to wear on St. Patrick’s Day. And yes, we matched (me in my Cape Cod).

I loved this sweet little pattern, which can be made to fit any pup (or cat, or rabbit, for that matter). It’s called the Perfect Fit Dog & Cat Sweater, and it’s free.

I made this one a bit short (let’s call it a crop top), but you can make it whatever length you want. I have plans to make him one in handspun for fall, once he’s quit growing. I mean, that sounds like a perfectly reasonable thing to do, right?
