This evergreen knit design with snowflakes, reindeer, and tiny hearts remains popular for decades, both in human and canine holiday fashion, and with good reason, too – it’s super cute. Your pet will look adorable for the Christmas party in his red knit sweater! The sizes do run a bit small, but they are still suited for dogs of all breeds, from small to large.
