We have two miniature pinschers, Sebastian will be 2 on Valentine’s Day and Weezy (in the picture above) will be 4 in June. As I mentioned in a previous post, they wear sweaters in the wintertime for function not fashion. They are a very small breed of dog (just 7 and 10 pounds) and are prone to pneumonia so we try to keep them as warm as possible during the cold months. The biggest problem I’ve had since we got Weezy is that the store-bought sweaters are two things: crazy expensive and terrible quality. They’re great for a short period of time but they fall apart in the washer and they stretch out until they just hang off their bodies. I recently learned how to do a basic crochet and thought I’d take a stab at a super simple pattern I came up with to crochet a handmade sweater for Weezy. It ended up turning out great… the combination of the suede yarn and the small hook I used resulted in a tight-knit super warm sweater that Weezy has been living in since I finished it!
