Puppy’s First Christmas Sweater

Buttercup is cold. This is one of those things that probably isn’t true – she’s made of fluff and lives in Georgia – but it feels true. Another thing that feels that true, is that if I love her I should knit her a sweater for Christmas.

Materials:

Needles: US size 6 and US size 8

Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Worsted in Serrano, 2 skeins (150 yards / 3.53 ounces)
