FO: Lady Sophie’s Sweater

I have a thing for dogs wearing sweaters. Exhibit A:
The only thing you can do after a good turkey dinner with the family. #cherandjelly
I also have a thing for my friends who love their dogs the way I love my own. When I was making a tie for my friend Steven’s birthday I knew it had been long overdue for me to make his lovely dog Sophie a sweater.

I mean come on, how regal does she look? She’s such a freakin’ lady.

I made Sophie the Sparkle sweater that I previously made for Cher. It’s such a simple top down sweater that’s easy to modify. Since Sophie’s chest was a little larger than the largest size I modified it by adding more repeats in the chest.

It fits her perfectly. For this sweater I used a leftover skein of Lion Brand Heartland yarn. I really do like this acrylic yarn for something soft but durable and you can wash it and dry it in the machine. If you’re knitting for dogs that’s kind of a must. And since I’m talking about dogs in sweaters…can I share the sweaters I had my cuties in for the holidays?
Holiday sweaters
I bought these from my favorite site, Baxter Boo and I’m pretty sure Cher believes she’s a model. I’m obsessed with this faux cardigan style and now want to knit this for them on my own. I will figure this design out. And I can’t forget to share Jellybean…

Cause she’s too cute too. You’re welcome.

    1. Thank you. It tickles me to no end when I put them in sweaters. And Jellybean is so stinking tiny and always cold that a sweater is kind of mandatory this time of year.

  1. You can make me smile even though the state of the world gives me a migraine! Thank you for the love you show and share. This is going to be all vicarious for me. We just adopted a very skittish little cat, and Sadie is not interested in getting dressed just yet, though she does love burrowing into an afghan.

    1. Everyone asks me to sell sweaters but i would need to develop my own pattern and have time to make them. I just don’t know if I can do it.

      1. Don’t. Cause you know how things end up after we say never! LOLOL!

  2. So cute! Definitely Jellybean IS a model. I knit one for a friend’s dog recently, and it was easy once I figured out the measurements. The red, the stripes, and the cardigan look all in one sweater just slay me.

    1. I couldn’t resist the cardigan style when I saw them. It’s just so cute! I’ll definitely figure out how to recreate the look. I love it too much.

  3. They rock! My parents dogs have hoodies, each time I see them it melts my heart. But they don’t like them so much so they wear them only outdoors when it’s really cold, whereas your dogs look really comfy in them! Makes me a bit jealous 😉

    1. Jellybean lives in a piece of clothing, she is always nice and warm. Cher we put coats on her when going on but she doesn’t wear stuff on a daily basis.

  4. I’ve got to knit a sweater for my grandchild, my son’s dog Connie. She’s a pit bull/bulldog mix and such a sweetie!

    1. The top down sweater book I used is super easy to adapt for bigger dogs. And they look so cute in sweaters, no matter what the size.

  5. Love these little sweaters, and Sophie looks so dapper in her new sweater. How sweet are Jellybean and Cher’s Christmas sweaters?!! Squeal!!

    1. HAHAHA yeah I love a dog in a sweater. And my dogs stay in sweaters when it’s cold, especially little Jellybean. She’s only 5 pounds! Our vet said we need to keep her warm to help her core body temp stay stable.

  6. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
