Cats love sweaters

Cat sweater… almost as much as they love sarcasm.

Pattern for a custom fitted long sleeve turtleneck cat sweater. Since this pattern is meant to be custom fitted to your cat using the yarn and gauge of your choice, there is a little bit of math involved. If you find that your numbers don’t work out perfectly, don’t sweat it! Just fudge them a little, don’t let math get in the way of the funny. Also, cats are bendy, squishy and generally confused by being measured, do the best you can. Close enough is close enough, the ribbing is pretty forgiving.

MATERIALS
- Any type of yarn will do, just choose your needle size as appropriate to the yarn weight.
- Set of double pointed needles or circulars
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Cat sweaterABBREVIATIONS
CO = Cast on
BO = Bind off
K = knit
K2T = knit two together
SSK = slip 2 stitches individually as if to knit, then knit those 2 stitches together
sts = stitches
2×2 rib = all ribbing in this pattern is *K2, P2* repeat to end of round.

DIRECTIONS
Knit a gauge swatch
CO 20 or so stitches and knit a few rows in stocking stitch then measure the gauge and jot it down.
__ Stitches per inch
__ Rows per inch

Measure the cat
__ Length from collar to start of back legs
__ Length between back and front legs
__ Distance between front legs
__ Width of front legs when looking at the cat in profile
__ Circumference of belly
__ Circumference of collar
__ Height of front legs

A little math
__ A = Circumference of belly x Stitches per inch, rounded to nearest number divisible by 4
__ B = Length between back and front legs x Rows per inch
__ C = Distance between front legs x Stitches per inch, rounded to nearest number divisible by 2
__ D = Width of front legs x Rows per inch
__ E = (Length from collar to start of back legs - Length between back and front legs - Width of front legs) x Rows per inch
__ F = Circumference of collar x Stitches per inch
__ G = A-F
__ H = If G/2 is greater than or equal to E, H=1. Else H=E/(G/2), rounded to the nearest whole number
__ I = (Height of front legs - 1 inch) x Rows per inch

Belly
CO A and join for working in the round. Knit in 2×2 rib for B rounds.

Cat vestDivide for arms
Continuing in 2×2 rib, work back and forth on C stitches for D rows, this will be the material that runs between the cats front legs. It will be referred to as the chest piece. Cut yarn leaving a tail to weave in later.
Join yarn and work the rest of the stitches in 2×2 rib for D rows, this will be the material that goes over the cats back.
You should now have a tube that splits for the arms and is of equal length chest and back.

Join for neck
Resume knitting in the round in 2×2 rib, complete 1 round.
Continue knitting in rib while decreasing for neck. To decrease: K2tog right after chest piece and SSK right before chest piece every H rounds until F stitches remain.
Knit ribbing for 1 more inch, BO loosely.
You can stop here and weave in ends for a nice fitted cat vest, or continue on to the sleeves…

Sleeves
Pick up and knit D stitches along each side of an arm slit starting at the point closest to the cats bum (total stitches = D x 2). Knit 1 round in 2×2 rib. Continue knitting in rib while decreasing every other round by K2tog at beginning of round and SSK at end of round until (2 x stitches per inch) remain, then continue knitting in rib until I rows total for sleeve have been completed. BO loosely.
Repeat for second arm.

Cat sweaterFinishing
Weave in ends. Wrestle the sweater onto the cat. Laugh and laugh at the ridiculousness of it all.

Crazy Aunt Purl had a cat sweater sweepstakes, see the gallery here!

Howdy to the folks who dropped by from Cute Overload! For those curious, both models in these photos are female, with all their claws, there seemed to be some discussion ;)

Words can not express how happy I’d be if you sent me a photo of your cat in a sweater:

    This is so cute! I might try this pattern for my dog (who actually appreciates clothes, much unlike my cat) I love how the pattern says “Divide for arms” because that’s what I say when I refer to my furry roommates’ front legs as well ;)

  2. SpaceCase Knits » May Require Band-Aids Says:

    […] I think I found my next knitting project.  […]

  3. AndreaLea Says:

    Awesome! I’ve been wanting to make my cat a sweater for some time now. And since your cats look so enthusiastic about theirs, I’ll have to give it a go too!

  4. Kim Says:

    Your grey and white kitty looks almost exactly like our Fred! The cat sweaters are hilarious! Did your kitties allow themselves to remain sweatered for a significant period of time?

  5. Christine Says:

    heehee, Penny (grey and white) thought it was weird but with lots of praise and treats willingly wore the sweater for as long as long as I asked her to, maybe 15 minutes. Tyler (brown tabby) walked backwards a few steps then squirmed out of hers, took about 30 seconds. I really just knit them because I thought the idea of a cat sweater was pretty funny :)

    My SIL knit the vest version and tried it on a small dog, I think the pattern would convert well. Evidence here.

  6. loraine/simra Says:

    Thanks for the free pattern, Christine. I am making a sweater for each of two online friends I’ve “known” for years so it’s being put to good us. Long time ago I made a sweater for my oldest cat, she was 17yrs when she passed, and she wasn’t too happy, although she liked the warmth.

  7. Kate Says:

    lmao! I have no idea how you managed to get your cats into those sweaters, mine would probably claw my face off, poo in my shoes and then move out, taking all my valuables, if I tried! I’m almost tempted though… well done!!

  8. Cindy Says:

    OMG, I just found this while poking around at Ravelry, and it made me laugh out loud! I can’t believe you got your cats to wear sweaters. Too funny!

  9. Andrea Says:

    FABULOUS! I am so glad I’m not the only one who knits clothing for her cats…although maybe I shouldn’t enter Crazy Aunt Purl’s contest now that I see the competition. Mine are no where near as nicely done. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  10. Brenna Says:

    Im gonna knit one for my Man’s BFF!

  11. bluepaintred Says:

    found you via cute overload. i wish I knew how to knit becuase this is pure gold! I would make matching sweaters for my cat and dog!

  12. Tina Vaziri Says:

    Omg, I love you. Now I only need to 1. learn to knit, and 2. learn to not die while putting sweater on my kitty who has claws, and doesn’t like stuff being put on him

  13. Laura Says:

    Ooooh! I know a kitty who’ll despise this, but the kitty’s person will love it. I especially love the blue sweater at the bottom (and the expression on the cat’s face). I’m going to give this a whirl. I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to knit the sweater. Getting the cat into it will require ground up liver and probably result in stitches for me.

    Oh the fun I’m going to have!

  14. Andrea M Says:

    Wow! I can’t believe the cat sat still long enough to have her arms stuffed in that sweater! I found this on CuteOverload. I think I will try one of these when I get done with my socks!

  15. claudine hellmuth Says:

    love that your cat would let you put these sweaters on! how CUTE! i think there would be serious injury if I tried this with my cats!

  16. MonkeyGurrl Says:

    Ditto what everyone else said - the sweaters are GREAT! And your cats are so obliging (hey, I did not see one drop of blood in any of the pix!) Just too dang cute.

  17. Jessica-Jean Says:

    IF I let my cats outside in cold weather and IF my cats were of a hairless breed, MAYBE I would knit them warm sweaters. However, my first cat - Snoopy by name - taught me very well back in the early 1950’s not to dress-up cats. He did NOT like wearing my dolls’ clothes and being walked around the block in the doll carriage, and I have the scars to prove it!
    That said, your pictures are achingly cute and worth the time spent knitting the sweaters - and writing out the pattern, too - and taking the photos. I think your kitties earned their treats!
    Thank you.

  18. loizhanne Says:

    I found your site through the Cute Overload pic, and decided to check it out. Wow! I have a large hound dog, my sister has a tiny Pekingese, and our housemate has a large Peke and a shih tzu. She also has two cats. I just stocked up on wool. Winter is coming on. Your pattern is nicely adaptable to size changes. I will be looking for something to do when I am stuck in the house. Hmmmmmm…….. The sweaters are absolutely beautiful that you have shown on your site. I would love to see how some of the other cat sweaters come out. Thanks for the pattern!

  19. random threads » Blog Archive » sweaters for fur people Says:

    […] excuse me, Miss Emma, would you please look at these kitties happily wearing their lovingly-hand-knit sweaters? Isn’t Penny, the grey and white kitty, […]

  20. emily Says:

    I love this beautiful pattern, and I am dying to try it. Unfortunately I am a fairly inexperienced knitter. Scarves and simple hats are the extent of my skills so far.

  21. Amy Says:

    Yay, I just love this pattern, and once I saw it I just had to knit it up for my Abby. Pics here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/amerob/sets/72157602774854087/

  22. simone Says:

    I can’t imagine any cat will be happy to wear clothes.
    The only reason to make them wear clothes would be, when they had surgery and the wound had to be protected.
    I love my cats too much to do such things.
    It’s crazy, there is no need for it either and it’s not cute at all!!!

  23. Alison from the UK Says:

    I’m not sure about this. I love cats and believe their dignity is precious. My own would LOATHE these sweaters. I’ve never thought dressing animals up was cute or funny - I am often reminded of circuses, which I also hate, and performing dogs dressed in frilly skirts. In the case of some short-haired dogs coats may be necessary.

    Cat’s fur, however, is marvellously engineered, with several different layers, ranging from the soft inner fur to the long outer guard hairs. The different layers can be puffed up according to the temperature, meaning that cats can be warm - or cool - enough in almost any climate, especially if well-fed, and in lovely condition, which your cats obviously are.

    However, your cats are beautiful and well-loved; but please will cat-lovers out there think before they try this at home. You may be causing unecessary anguish!

  24. Kathy Says:

    Oh My gosh………….how did you get their sweaters on them? I hope you’re not scratched from the process……..LOL
    They are cute and while my cats would never tolerate me putting a sweater on them, my Yorktese loves them. So I’ll knit them for her.
    Thanks for the pattern. They are adorable!
    p,s, So are your cats…….

  25. Tina Vaziri Says:

    I’m sure that loving cat parents will not put sweater on their kitty friends if they see that the cats are anguished or totally uncomfortable.

    It’s just for momentary fun and a quick photo op. If the cats really hated it, they wouldn’t let you put it on in the first place, or tear it off right away. They are usually pretty good at telling you what they want or don’t want.

  26. Lisagh Says:

    Did it. Laughed my butt off. Took many photos. Please do check them out. Thanks so much for the fun!

  28. Summer Says:

    My cat liked her old sweater coat that she got to wear when she went outside in the winter. (Yes, I spoil her and let her go outside with supervision.)

    This is a Perfect thing to replace that on which got lost. Yay!

  29. Moira Says:

    :-)

    I don’t know if my Miss Iona or Miss Kieran would actually WEAR the sweater, but it’s a very lovely idea and I might just have to try it, particularly if it gets really cold here this winter in Wisconsin.

    By the way, my Miss Kieran looks so very much like your Penny.

  30. Cynthia Says:

    Ohohohohoho!! This is wonderful, and so are your kitties. I’ve e-mailed this pattern to my daughter hoping she’ll knit one up for her Tucker, who weighs in the 20-pound neighborhood and looks more like a polar bear than you’d think a cat could. (He’d have room for an applique snowman on his sweater!)

  31. gocce Says:

    I LOVED and did it. I am not an advanced knitter, so I had some changes. I straight knitted and joined the ends afterwards. Also I crocheted the neck area and the sleeves. Thanks so much for the pattern! Check my photos! http://www.flickr.com/photos/gocce/sets/72157594507727428/

  32. Corey Says:

    Can you make a whole cat version? I have a Devonshire Rex, totally hairless, from tip to tail, and he is freezing his butt off out here in las vegas it’s around 30.

  33. Geraldine Says:

    This is tooooo cute for words!!! My two kitties have given the idea of wearing one the paws DOWN ;( but I still think this is just hilarious!

    Love your blog, great patterns, thanks for sharing, G

  34. Kel Says:

    I just found this last week, and I used it to knit up a sweater for my 6 pound Japanese Chin (she acts like a cat sometimes). It is the cutest thing ever! Thank you!

    I think she likes it more than a cat would. :)

  35. Dee Says:

    I am not a knitter, but my girlfriend is. She stumble across your site and showed me pictures of your cats in their sweaters. I must say that this is the funniest thing I have seen in along time. I am now urging her to knit a sweater for my cat. Please post more pictures of your cats in sweaters.

    […] How’s this for a hoot…..check out this link for a ribbed cat sweater pattern and photos. […]

  38. Jo Says:

    This is a great pattern! the ribbing helps it conform to the body better. I’m knitting some for my neighbor’s Sphinx–poor funny little hairless thing. Her little tail isn’t even as thick as a pencil, and her legs are about the width of a AA battery.

    I’m making one up with the turtleneck made of Fun Fur with a velour/plush body in browns tans and black (she a calico). She be oh so glam!

  39. Dizzieny2 Says:

    Hi I love your cats. If I made one of those for my cat snickers I would need a lot of surgery. He’s a fighter not a lover only when he wants his treats. Now I think I will try to make it for my dogs. They might like it.
    Thanks

  40. Geraldine Says:

    I just finished this cat vest for our Mitz and she LOVES IT!!! Purrs….whenever we put it on her.

    She is very tiny, has always been searching for heat sources from day 1 (she’s now almost 20) and is in very good health but just loves being very toasty warm.

    Here’s a link to the post, featuring the Marvelous Mitz:

  41. Meow_Girl Says:

    I don’t do the blog thing, but I was googling cat sweater instrctions and this came up. My grandmother likes to knit, so she and I worked on it a few days (tak into comsideration I’m only in 6th grade) She did most of it. We followed the patterrn minus the sleaves. my cat is an outdoor/indoor cat, so the yarn would unravel (i spelled that wrong) if he went under a bush or somethig. He’s an old tom, I don’t think he has much dignity left. But enough to wiggle out of the sweater whem I leave the room.

  42. LindaB2603 Says:

    You know I had a really nasty headache but laughing at the pictures with this pattern just took it all way! Much better than Tylenol!!

    Love your cats! They are fine looking fellows–sweater and all!

  43. It’s February and LOVE is in the air….. « Veggies,Crafts & Tails Says:

    […] Yes, the Mitz still LOVES her sweater/vest! […]

  44. angelina Says:

    here i have been knitting cat sweaters by trial and error (most look like a cross-eyed person’s idea of a doll dress). Thanks, i’m definitely trying out yours. My cats hate being dressed, though Rufus is really too obliging/stupid to wriggle his way out of clothes (he managed to get one around his tummy, and no further!) The problem is that my cats will lick and lick the wool until it looks all fuzzy; one even chews holes into the sleeves. I’ll get my daughter take some photos for you to enjoy.

  45. Giulia Says:

    This is so funny! I wish I had a cat to knit a sweater for. I may measure the neighbour cat the next time he’s on my patio, and then dress him up and send him home. :)

  47. April Says:

    I love it! I’ve been looking for a cat sweater pattern for awhile now. Thank you so much for posting this! I can’t wait to get started!

  48. Vickie Says:

    Your kittys are so cute, and they don’t even look like they are in distress, but would they let their friends see them that way? I have two cats, not sure if I can wrestle them in sweaters, plus, with the way they play with my yarn they may start carting each other around. I have been trying to get photos of them prancing around with balls of wool held high, you have done a great job of capturing them.

  49. lynne Says:

    I may try this on my daughters mini dachsund! Does anyone have a robin pattern?

  50. Chris Says:

    Ok - I have never knit in my life, but my cat Jack really needs one of these! I have been sewing him clothes for awhile now, but the sweater looks so comfortable. Is this going to be something that I can figure out on my own? I’m hoping with everything on the internet that I will be able to teach myself how to knit based on the directions and terms you used. “)

  51. Mike Says:

    I have never seen a gayer set of cats in my entire life. Sweater vests rule!

  52. lisabee Says:

    omg. this is officially my new favorite knitting blog. “cats are bendy, squishy and generally confused by being measured.” i think i may try to adapt this to my dogs.

  53. Kathy Says:

    My daughter found this through StumbleUpon, and it’s perfect for our ancient and chill Mr. Bo, who can no longer groom himself. However, his partner-in-crime, Miss Belle, would take off my arm if I tried to wrestle her into a sweater. As a puffball of a longhair, she doesn’t need it, anyway.

    Thanks for sharing the cute pattern.

  54. Julie Says:

    your so lucky your cats wear them!
    i tried one on my cat tonight and he had no balance he kept tipping over to the point where he wouldnt try to walk anymore!
    it was a little dog sweater but i didnt think it’d make a difference.
    is there a way my cat can learn?
    thanks heaps!

  55. Laurie Ellington Says:

    I made this for my ailing, geriatric kitty and he seems to love it - well, at least he’s not complaining. I made it a rollneck collar (finished with stockinette stitch for a few rounds), as I didn’t want anything gripping his neck. Can I post a picture?

  56. Nicole Says:

    Hi,
    I dunno if you can see my email or reply to this or not.
    But the “divide for arms” step confuses me.
    Mind you, I’m more than a beginner, but barely.
    So I’m doing this in Stockenette stitch rather than 2X2 rib.
    could someone explain this to me better? Maybe show some pictures?
    what does it mean “work back in forth C stitches for D rows” is that like, make a flat piece for the chest? if so, how do I make the part that goes around the back, at the same time? do I just ignore everything but what becomes the chest piece, and bind it off after I finish? but then how would they connect?
    I’m confused.

  57. Linda Says:

    Purrfect sweater for those cats with very little or no hair. My Blankets loves it and pokes her head through the hole like a two year old putting on a T shirt.

  58. Celi Says:

    Our little middle-aged Siamese is tiny and really feels the cold. Does anyone know a cat that’s OK wearing a sweater? If she went out in the rain she’d need to change immediately, so would need quite a few…. Any advice please, before I start knitting? Thanks a lot!

  59. Hana Says:

    Wow Wow!
    How cute. But I can’t believe both kitties let you put them on! I tried many years ago crocheting one of my cats a warm sweater. He went berserk, running backwards, ramming into the wall t otry to get it off. How did you do it?? And did they LIKE it? Did they step into the sleeves voluntarily?

    That is very impressive, and extra cute if they liked it. :o)
    Meows to you

  60. Marg in Mirror, AB Says:

    This is just what I’ve been looking for! I have an aged cat (almost 20 years old), and he’s starting to feel the cold in his old bones. This will be perfect. Thanks!

  61. Lestersmama Says:

    My Lester doesn’t mind wearing clothing - he even seems to enjoy it. He was the most handsome pirate since Jack Sparrow this past Hallowe’en.

    Next project will be a sweater for sitting on the balcony in winter.

    Wonderful pattern. Thank you.

  62. christine@"CAT RESCUE" Says:

    HELP!!

    2 of our residents Charlie who uses a wheel chair and William a diabetic cat could both use a coat.

    “Charlie “because he often spends long periods of time sat in his chair watching the world, the birds etc and we wonder if he feels cold sometimes. As he can get out of his chair at will awe also are concerned when he lies on the grass when he has left his chair during winter and spring that he may feel cold.

    “William” has different needs, due to being very very old and skinny we feel he would benefit from a coat and also we want to put a message on him asking people NOT to feed him and NOT to take him into their homes as he needs insulin regularly- matched to his food intake.

    I am not a knitter and none of our volunteers are - so is there anyone out there who can help?I have not worked out yet how to put the words on William’s back - embrodiery perhaps?

    just to put everyone’s mind at rest Charlie has aneurological problem similar to Cerebal Palsy he is perfectly normal and intelligent - he just has no sense of balance so cannot stand up unaided.He is a very happy cat

    thank you

  63. Jojo Says:

    My cat got a sweater for xmas, not from me. I dont like it very much but its so cute to see when she wears. I am mostly worried she is in anguish when wearing it. I dont have the heart to tell the gift giver that maybe this isn’t a good healthy idea for a cat.

  64. Anna Says:

    I love this! Every time I look at the cat in the pink sweater I start laughing. I think you should make socks to match!

  65. Luise Mitchell Says:

    I have knitted this one but my cat thinks it is an overture for a cat-fight. Do you have one crocheted?

  66. BigBear Says:

    I like the vest. I live in Norway so it gets very cold here this time of the year so im sure my cat would like it!

  67. Rachel from Wales Says:

    My cat has worn a vest for nearly 3 months now. He is a compulsive scratcher and self-harms if left uncovered. We are still trying to work out the cause of the problem. The vest is an excellent deterent. To begin with he HATED the vest. Did an excellent impression a cat very hard done by. Now he just gets on with life. He is a black cat and looks very stylish in his red vest.

  68. Sarah Says:

    My Catalina wears sweaters when I take her out for walks on a leash in the winter. She actually needs them for the functional purpose of staying warm. She has two store-bought sweaters which were actually dog sweaters. I bought them last winter, when she was a 6-mo-old kitten. They’re too small now, so my friend is going to knit her a new one!

  69. Olga Deckert Says:

    Hi!
    You should have a button at the top of the page so we can click there!
    Also, how the heck do I post a picture? deckertolga (at) yahoo (dot) com someone help me?

    I’ve been in search of a place to post this and hope this makes it to the web! A picture of my cat in a sweater Great Grandma knit him and my loving email to her. She was not privileged to his measurements but still swung this out of yarn….

    …You are my Grandmother and that makes Dudley your Greatgandcat. (Great Grandcat.) I am your grand and he is your great. Hence, I have deemed him Dudley Lewis the Great. I am so pleased to present you with 5 photos from my shoot with Dudley wearing your gift. He just pranced around here loving it. I have spared you the less flattering photos, but should he bite me or misbehave, I will post those pictures too!

    On my lap and irritated because when he was enjoying the rooftop for the first time ever, I had to grab his tail to keep him from running out further from our corner apartment on the third floor. Though, I know he sure knows how good he’s got it made up in here.

    Love you Granny!

    Olga

    Really cute!!! You are a very talented lady!
    Love your patterns.
    Thanks

  71. Cristina from Argentina Says:

    Thank you for the free pattern! It was quite amusing to get the measurements of my kitty, I have scratches all over my arms, lol. But I will start it tonight because it’s winter time in this side of the globe and poor kitty is freezing. I think the most challenging part is going to be to actually put the sweater on her, lol. I will most definitely send you pictures!

  72. kapila Says:

    Hi! I was so happy to find this great, well written, clear pattern - our leeetle keeeteee had just gotten spayed. Of course, the e collar was awful, but what made it even more pathetic is that our kitten only has one eye to begin wtih. So we couldn’t possibly stand the thought of her navigating our home almost completely blind. The solution? Your cats love sweaters pattern. I worked furiously for one day to get it done, and by evening time, Kiki had a brand new sweater to wear. She did try to get at her stitches and lick down in her gut, so I could have made it longer, but all in all, it worked like a charm. Oh, she licked it so much she actually felted the wool in places LOL. I’ve kept it as a souvenir. Thanks so much for your help!

  73. Lilian Says:

    Thanks so much for your post! I wanted to return a favour to a friend of mine and offered to knit something for her, and she asked for a sweater for her cat. I’m fairly new at knitting, and always looking for opportunities to pick up new skills, and found your website. Will definitely try this out. Do cats have a yarn preference?

  74. Juju Says:

    Hi Christine: I have been on your website looking for a large, stuffed elephant. I grew up with such an elephant knit by my grandmother whom I named “Ezra”. He wandered off somewhere and I miss him. Any chance you have a pattern. Thanks, Juju

  75. Kathy Says:

    My cat now wears a t-shirt to protect her feeding tube; she has inoperable cancer at the back of her mouth. I’d love to be able to find a soft sweater for her like this as the t-shirt does not do her justice and will need washing!

  78. Meredith Says:

    Kinda late to the party..
    I’m going to try knitting this for one of my cats! So cute.
    For the naysayers– I had a cat that loved wearing clothes. We shaved him fairly regularly because he was very difficult to groom and the heat really effected him badly. It got even worse as he got older. One year we had an unexpected cold snap after we shaved him so I needed to find a way to warm him up. I found an adorable little small dog sweatshirt at the pet store and he sported that thing proudly for months. He loved wearing it, even after his fur grew back in. In my experience, cats just don’t like things on their heads.

  79. cat behavior Says:

    nicely done for custom made dress for cat it fitly comfortable to wear, Perfect sweater for those cats with very little or no hair.

  80. Firefly Says:

    I’ve searched high and low for a pattern like this. I’m in Afghanistan and the the winters are bitter cold. Our cat (and official mascot) Deuce is an outdoor kitty so I’m eager to try this out to help keep him a bit warmer. I don’t think he’ll be too finicky but I’ll have to let you know how it works out.
