Product Review: Dachshund Beanie

I'm always purchasing different items, so I thought it would be a good idea to share my thoughts on my purchases. And what better place to share my opinion than my blog...

As I was searching for new Dachshund items on Etsy, I came across the adorable beanie with a Dachshund crocheted on it. I "favorited" the item with the intention of purchasing it over the weekend. When I went to my "favorites" and discovered the beanie had sold, I was severely disappointed. I mean what better way to represent my love for the breed than on a beanie. I contacted Jan at bitknit, to see if she would be making more or if she would make a custom hat in the colors I wanted. I was thrilled when she said she could make a custom one for me. We conversed a few times getting the color down. She was very willing to do what I wanted. I requested a dark pink or fuchsia, with a brown or grey Dachshund.
I receive the beanie faster than I expected for a custom order. It came in a bubble mailer and wrapped in tissue.
It also included a tag with care instructions.
 Here's my adorable hat. She even added a cute little blue collar on the Dachshund.
The little Dachshund wraps around the hat.
I totally love my little Dachshund beanie. The color is wonderful and matches this sweater jacket that I purchase a few days before receiving it. I would highly recommend bitknit. Jan is wonderful to work with, her prices are great, and her workmanship is excellent. I think I need to order another one in neutral


  1. LOVE the beanie! Super cute, and it looks great on you!
