Love That Doggie Handknit Designs

Custom Handknit Sweaters for Small Dogs

Made with love

Keep your best friend warm and cozy with a hand knit sweater.

Made by hand

All of my sweaters are lovingly hand made. Sweaters stretch to ensure a comfortable fit and are washable. Handwashing is recommended.

About the Sweaters

Ottawa winters are long and cold, and little Sadie just wasn't acclimated to the conditions. When Elise couldn't find what she wanted for Sadie - sweaters that were well-made, warm, and didn't gape to let in the cold air - she started knitting for her. Sadie has quite a wardrobe now, but others started asking after the sweaters, and Love That Doggie was born. Love That Doggie sweaters are custom made to measure for your dog, to your specifications with quality yarns.

About Elise & Sadie

Elise Letourneau learned to knit from her birthmother, Christine. In addition to being yarn-obsessed, she is a fibre artist and musician. Sadie Daisy Mae is the first Love That Doggie dog, and she has a high tolerance for fitting sessions.

About the Designs

Sweaters are typically knit in a 1x1 rib to ease over the dog's head and around the chest, but they don't gape around the tummy. Arm hole openings are generous for comfort and range of motion.
Customizable features include buttons, neckline, colour, texture, contrasting tummy panel, optional opening for a harness loop, optional pocket.
Prices vary according to sweater size, knitting gauge, time spent on the project, and the cost of the materials.
Elise is available by appointment to meet with you and your dog to discuss options and obtain measurements.
