OMG the leg warmer one is soooooo cute!!!

Here is one of Bella's sock sweaters. It was a children's sock from Walmart originally. It's a silly pattern, but keeps her pretty toasty.









Bella is a little over two pounds, so the kids' size sock fits well. For bigger
Chis you can use a large adult sock, or even a man's sock. And if anyone
has medium sized dogs, for my 21 pound Basenji boys I used hockey socks.

Thanks for sharing!
I tried doing this with that kind of sock and it kept fraying EVERYWHERE! How did you stop it from doing that? It is adorable!!! Great job!

Well the neck part does not fray because I did not have to cut it, I left it as is.
The leg holes and back part of the sweater do fray, so I either wash the sock in
the machine after I've cut it into a sweater, or I sew by hand the edges so they
don't fray, depends on the sock.
