A lovely cosy turquoise & blue jumper, knitted to my own design, especially for a slim whippet.
This jumper is knitted in soft chunky acrylic yarn, washable by hand or gentle 30 degree wash.
The jumper is made for a fully grown whippet with an approximately 23-24 inch chest . It is knitted in 'tank' style, without sleeves, so that the whippet can run unencumbered, and it fits snugly around the end of the waist (neck to waist measurement 18 1/2 inches) so that it doesn't flap about.
If your whippet isn't used to wearing jumpers, it is best to 'feed' the legs & nose through first while the dog is lying down, so that the legs don't get trapped inside bent!! Hettie is well used to the jumper 'feed' now!
If you like this jumper but feel your whippet would look better in a different colour, I can knit both chunky & Double Knit jumpers to order (with about a week to knit a fairly plain one please). Please contact me through the folksy site with details of what you might like & neck, chest & waist measurements. There's a pic of a Whippet here showing the measurements I need for a custom knit.
My whippet, Hettie, can get a bit shivery at night & on her walks, so I started knitting her jumpers as soon as she arrived. The problem was that I couldn't find any patterns for a skinny little miss with such a long neck, so I've designed my own.
She's now a seasoned jumper wearer & attracts lots of attention when we are out running with Hettie's friends in the local meadows.
Proceeds from all these whippet jumpers will be donated to my local Greyhound Rescue charity.
