Keeping hounds warm and working toward World Pompomination!

In 2006, a Whippet named Pixie and I lived in NYC, and Pixie was chilly. I searched the stores for a sweater to fit her breed’s unique body shape, with no luck. As a lifelong knitter, I decided to do-it-myself. Friends soon asked me to outfit their dogs, and WhipKnits was born. WhipKnits creates whimsical, customizable, and functional knitwear (and knitting patterns) for dogs. In 2017, I opened my Etsy shop and expanded my product line to include pompom snoods (a new signature product), scarves, and sizing for many dog breeds. That year, I was chosen by Etsy as one of their top new shops and featured on the Etsy blog. On Valentine’s Day, 2019, as a gift to myself, I took the plunge to go official and WhipKnits became an LLC. Recently, I added non-seasonal products to the shop (e.g., knitted dispensers for doggy waste bags) and I have plans to create a home décor line.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I make custom sweaters based on the measurements you provide. Each listing has a diagram showing what measurements are needed. In most cases, I need the length from the base of the neck to where the tail starts and the girth around the widest part of the chest. In the case of some other breeds, I also need to measurement of the widest part of the head. It also helps with sizing, if you provide your dog's weight.

Care instructions

All sweaters are made from washable acrylic yarn. Machine wash warm; tumble dry; do not bleach; do not iron; dry cleanable.
