Thanks to Knitwise for sending me these amazing gifts! As always, all opinions are my own.

It’s safe to say that my whole family is pretty obsessed with our pets. My brother and sister-in-law have two well-loved corgis, and my sister and her husband have a cat and a dog respectively. We all consider our pets to be family members and when I heard about Knitwise and their custom pet gifts, I knew they’d be perfect for Christmas!

Knitwise Customized Pet Gifts

Knitwise is a tech startup to innovate fashion supply chain, one stitch at a time. They’re a team made up of designers, artists, software engineers, and textile engineers. They operate a knitwear lab where they make one-of-a-kind sweaters to show the world who you are, what you love, and what you are passionate about. One of their areas of expertise are custom kit pet gifts, and I’m excited to share my favorites with you! 


Knitwise Custom Pet Sweaters

When you think of ‘pet sweaters’ you may be thinking of sweaters for pets…but Knitwise creates sweaters for YOU with your pet(s) on them! First, you look through the templates and customer gallery to get inspired for your own design. Then, upload your photo(s) and let the artist know if there are certain elements or design features you’d like on the sweater. After your artwork preview is sent over and you’ve approved it, the team at Knitwise will get started creating! Here are some specifications you can modify:

  • Choose one or two pets to feature
  • Fully body or portrait for your pets
  • Whether to include your pet’s name or other verbiage
  • Background color and colors to be used in design (up to 4 total)
  • Extra design elements you’d like featured


Knitwise Holiday Special Pet Custom Sweater

For my brother, I chose the Knitwise Holiday Special Pet Custom Sweater. This is a jacquard crew neck knitted sweater that’s standard classic fit. If you’re between sizes they suggest sizing up, especially if you prefer a looser sweater. These sweaters are machine washable and can be dried on low heat. My brother loves a good Christmas sweater, so I thought it would be fun to feature his two corgis in holiday garb. I’m so excited for him to open it up!

 Knitwise To My Human, With Love Sweater

My sister-in-law is getting the To My Human, With Love Sweater featuring their two sweet corgis, Pickles and Muffin. Just like my brother’s sweater, I was able to customize the design colors and this time I chose portraits instead of the full-body option. These sweaters are made from a very high-quality knit and they’re a nice weight when you’re wearing them. With nearly endless options for customizing these sweaters, you’ll be able to make them truly personal for everyone on your shopping list.

Knitwise Custom Stripes Knitted Blanket

My brother-in-law has an adorable English Labrador named Buddy. He’s absolutely obsessed with his dog and brings him everywhere! Since they also cuddle up on the couch together (a lot!) I thought it would be fun to get him a blanket featuring his favorite pet. Just like the sweaters, these blankets come in various designs and can be customized with certain design elements including colors and the text shown. I chose the largest size which is 50″x70″ and even though I expected it to be big, it’s REALLY big! I had to lay it out on my living room floor to get a photo, and it’s absolutely awesome. It’s somewhere between lightweight and heavy, and I know he’s going to love it.

Knitwise Custom Groovy Knitted Blankets

As much as my brother-in-law loves his dog, my sister may be even more obsessed with her cat Eleanor. As a completely black cat, I was curious how her picture would translate onto a blanket, but Knitwise did an amazing job! I went with the Custom Groovy Knitted Blanket which I think was a great option for her. Like the other Knitwise products the artwork is knitted into a jacquard blanket directly, with no screen printing or embroidery. It’s also machine washable! 

I can’t wait to see everyone’s faces on Christmas morning! Be sure to visit Knitwise to see all of their custom options.

    Right now I have a whole long bedroom dresser filled with photos of pets that have passed the rainbow bridge. Sometimes they make me happy but other times I’m sad.

  • Wendy Browne

    Before I started reading your review, I was thinking of wouldn’t it be nice if they would make pet sweaters for humans! Then I started reading your actual review and
    WHA-LAH! We were on the same page! I have noticed the older people get, the closer they are to their pets! My friend even read about making a statue of their pets with their pets ashes or by putting their ashes in the statue like an urn. I would love a sweater with our cat on it. Mocha is the first cat my husband liked as a pet! We’ve had other cats as pets. We’ve had a zoo at one time when the kids were young! My husband died last year! So I have spoiled our cat constantly! I know my honey would have loved a shirt or a blanket with her on it!! I have been trying to find a pin so I can pin it in my 2023 gift folder! These would make great Birthday or Christmas gifts!! Thanks for sharing!
