I spent the weekend at a friend’s house watching her chihuahua. We snuggled up under blankets on a rainy day and I crocheted her a sweater.

With such a small pup it’s easy to work something up really quickly.

I crocheted two granny squares, one a round larger than the other.

I put those back to back and joined them, leaving room for the puppy’s head and front legs to fit through.

I added a few rounds of half double crochet to create the legs and neck of the sweater.

I added a row of shells along the back of the top, extending the larger square even further down the back and making it a frillier, girlier sweater.

And that’s all it took.

I used Red Heart yarn and an H hook.

Aww! How cute! I want to crochet a sweater for my darling feline, but I don't think she'll appreciate me making her wear clothes!
