I did it. I knit Jellybean a tiny brioche sweater, a little Linus sweater. I wanted her to have a sweater that matched my Linus sweater I made for Rhinebeck and I used our road trip to Atlanta at the beginning of the month to take the time to whip it up for her.
Here’s the thing, making her a sweater is quicker than knitting an adult hat. How could I not make her one? I also had the tiniest bits of yarn left over from my finished cardigan and it was more than enough to accomplish this.
This sweater really does make me happy and seeing her in a matching version makes me smile even more. I haven’t made her a cardigan (I do not feel like wasting buttons on a chihuahua) so I went with a pullover. The Linus Sweater comes in cardigan and pullover options so I thought it was appropriate to make her the pullover.
I will admit, sometimes when she scratches her belly with her back paws she will snag a sweater so this one will only be worn for special occasions. I can’t risk her pulling out all that tiny brioche! And for anyone who worries you she might be miserable in a sweater, she’s not. I promise you she’s perfectly warm and happy. Just like when she’s in her sling.
