TGIF Bonus Post: What Sweater Should My Sister Make for Dog Hazel?

My sister is visiting, and has volunteered to make Dog Hazel a little sweater for the winter.  Knitting takes time, so now is the time to pick the pattern so it can be ready by chilly weather.  Dog Hazel has terrible fur, is already cold just with air conditioning, so she definitely is going to need SOMETHING.  But what?

Welcome to the world of dog knitting patterns!  It is a magical place.

For instance, should I put Dog Hazel in a cape and horns?

A little hoodie?

Bernat Hoodie Dog Coat, S

Turtleneck with ears?

Dinosaur costume?

Ruffled sweater dress?

Practical multi-colored?

Christmas sweater!!!!



Right now, I am leaning towards this:


But in hot pink.  Because why have a dog if you can’t embarrass it? (see also: children).

    • Yes! Perfect! She can wear it to the premier of the Haathi Mere Saathi remake.

    • Which brings up the other question: should I have my sister make us matching sweaters?

    • Love the matching scarf idea! Because I can wear the scarf over my coat, so everyone can see it and admire our coordinated beauty.

      • A matching scarf sounds good, perhaps with a co-ordinating tam or beanie. Not as much work for your sister as knitting a jumper. We don’t want her to get RSI..


        • If we really wanted to make this easy, she could just pick yarn that matches one of the hats/scarves she has already made me and use that to make Hazel’s little coat.
