Just received the custom cranberry turtle neck sweater with cable, and it is beautiful! Fits perfectly in the chest, which is an issue with this deep chested dog, and has a perfectly located hole for the harness/leash attachment. All in all, the ordering process, communications, and packaging/delivery was all pleasant and efficient, and the finished product is perfect. If you have ever thought about ordering a sweater for your chilly little friend, do it HERE! You won't be disappointed!

I am beyond thrilled with the outcome of this sweater - it's absolutely lovely! Lindsay was so kind to accommodate my needs, and I can't stress my gratitude enough. Her heart truly shines through each and every stitch. Highly recommended.

The Creation of LPK

My chihuahua/son, Riley, inspired me to learn to knit. When he was a puppy I had a hard time finding extra small sweaters. When he was full grown, the sweaters I found in stores were so long that he kept peeing on them. So, I learned to make him custom sweaters. I got many compliments on my work so I began making sweaters and selling them. When I began knitting daily, my bichon, Mason, kept using my skeins of yarn as pillows and laying on sweaters - so I took his subtle hint and made him a blanket. He loves it, so I began selling hand knitted blankets as well. After selling some sweaters to a co-worker for her chihuahua she suggested I sell on Etsy. Here I am! (:

One size does not fit every paw, and that is why I am here. So many dogs are in-between the cookie cutter store sizes. Custom sweaters are the answer - and they don't have to cost an arm and a leg! My goals for this shop are to honor God with all I do, make quality items, have every budget feel comfortable, and donate hand knitted blankets to animal rescues to help calm rescued animals.

I plan to expand my product line in the future so keep checking back.
Thank you for reading and I would love to do business with you!

Welcome to LittlePawsKnitting inspired by the small pawed animals I have been blessed with. The beauty of hand knitted items is they have their own look; each item is unique in it's own way as opposed to commercial clothing and accessories. I never make the same thing twice - always different colors & textures. I promise quality & unique items created in a smoke free environment. Since one size does not fit every paw, I try to make my sweaters in a variety of sizes. I also take custom creation orders. Just message me what your thinking. Thanks!

I accept PayPal, direct checkout & Etsy gift cards. My preferred method is Paypal because of the fraud prevention it offers to both buyer & seller.
As soon as I receive your order (I check Etsy daily, so I probably will see it the day of), I will package your item up and ship it as soon as I can, usually day of (depending on the day or hour). When I have sent your order and give you a shipping confirmation, my responsibilities are completed. I am not responsible for any items lost in the mail, since what the post office does is out of my hands.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am an honest person, & want to believe everyone else is as well. Unfortunately, fraud does happen. Because there is no way to prove you did not receive an item, I do not refund money; I issue store credits. If your item does not arrive within 6 months, I will recreate the item to your specifics and resend as soon as possible.

Custom orders are non-returnable.

If you are unhappy with an item, you may return it. However, you will be responsible for the return shipping costs. Please let me know as soon as possible.
Additional policies and FAQs
Helping animals is very important to me, and I use my Etsy shop to help make a difference in animal's lives. I save a portion from each sale to help animals via two causes which are very near and dear to my heart: I sponsor an education animal at the wildlife center of Virginia ( and/or I sponsor an adoptable pet at my local animal shelter. I am so thankful for every order received because it helps me to help animals and support my family.

Please feel free to contact me - I want my customers to be happy!
