View Full Version : FO - Cabled Howie Sweater

02-01-2006, 08:42 AM
I finished another sweater for Howie last night....from Knitting For Dogs. Yarn is called Mega....I dont remember what brand it is. :thinking: Its not Encore. It's a chunky wool/acrylic blend.



Please pay no attention to the faces Howie is making....its too early for "modeling" and he doesnt like sitting on cold surfaces like the countertop! :lol:

It looks kind of like a reptile skin pattern to me. Very cool!!

Nice job, Kelly!

Smile, Howie, you look very manly in your cable knit. Bring that guy a Guiness!

Great job!!!! Poor Howie....he is finally warm and you make him sit on the cold counter...{{{{{shiver}}}} :roflhard:

Love the cable sweater and Howie! :heart: It looks like he is saying "It is WAY too early in the morning for this" :D

It is so cute! I am going to have to check out that book. Does it also include easier patterns... ie. ones without cables!

Does he bark with an Irish accent now?
Fisherman knits are my all time favorite. So many cables to choose from.

Just how many sweaters does this lil doggy have, now?

Very nice sweater. Howie is just adorable. He cracks me up! I don't blame him for being upset about the cold counter though.

02-01-2006, 11:28 AM
He may be cold up there on the counter but you can tell he :heart: his mama for making him such groovy sweaters :cheering:

omGOSH Howie is just the kewl-est!! Love the sweater KK!

(howie's thinkin'-"I'm a lucky dog, lucky dog with a freezin' tush"!

I agree, Howie must have more sweaters than me- lol-course I bet they're a wee bit faster to knit, huh?

Very cute! :thumbsup:

02-01-2006, 02:06 PM

It sure does! The one I did before was REALLY easy....not even any seaming! It was supposed to be fair isle, but I skipped the colorwork


Just how many sweaters does this lil doggy have, now?

:lol: He has TWO.

Howie (& his tush) and I thank you ALL for your kind compliments! ;)

He IS pretty smoochable.... :inlove:

Im gonna show it off at open knit tonight & then wash it & hope it gets softer so he'll like it as much as the other one.

I love your sweater! I have a white female chihuahua but she has a bit of tan around her eyes and on her head. She would love a sweater! I need to get that book!

Kelly, how much does Howie weigh? My mom just got a Boston Terrier, and I think she said she weighed 14 pounds. I think she needs some sweaters. The dog, not my mom. Well I'm sure Mom would like some new sweaters too.

His sweaters were from the Kristi Porter book right?

02-10-2006, 08:37 AM
Yes...the Kristi Porter book. Howie weighs just over 8 pounds, but the patterns have you measure length from collar to tail and chest circumference.

02-10-2006, 08:49 AM
I want that book and I love that sweater!!! You did great!!
