Nappi the toy poodle recently got a stylish Icelandic sweater for the cold days of autumn. The instructions were from a popular book of traditional Icelandic sweaters for both people and pets.

We chose the colors to represent the Nordic winter sunsets with their deep purples and smoky blues. Nappi at least is reminded of her ancestral days of running with the wolves.

What You Need for This Knitted Sweater

This knitted sweater is fairly simple. It works best for smaller dogs. Nappi’s chest circumference is 36 centimeters and her back is c. 30 cm long.

The yarn used for the sweater is 100% Icelandic wool, called Léttlopi. For the sweater, you’ll need 3 x 50 gram balls.

As you can see in the picture, the sweater fits nicely around the neck and front paws. The shape of the back leaves room for the hind legs even when sitting.
