I would love to make Lucy a sweater for the winter...preferably wool. But all the patterns I've found for her size are just incredibly hard!!! There must be an easy pattern somewhere. She's a lab mix...about 50 lbs.

Anyone have some suggestions? Or any thoughts on how to design one? Wouldn't want anything fancy...just very simple.

I found a bazillion patterns for little dogs... Pebbles and Howie should be all set for the winter!

Ooops....! I found all of my little doggie sweaters when I was first started (about 4 months ago). I didn't save the web sites, I just printed out the patterns... :rollseyes: (now I save everythin)
I can mail you what I have though!
(Pebbles & I would do anything for Howie!)

Wouldn't your printed patterns have the web site up in the corner? :thinking:

KK,
I'll let you know when I see the "new" patterns from my LYS guy! The pics looked REALLY cute. Maybe Pebbles & Howie can have matching clothes... :happydance:
