I'm looking around to find an easy dog sweater to knit. Anyone have a suggestion? :XX: Thank you! :heart: (Btw, the dog I want to knit a sweater for is a Yorkie...he needs a hair cut, doesn't he? Lol.)

Cute pic! Here's a link (http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/pets.php) to a bunch of pet stuff.

For a Yorkie, I HIGHLY recommend you pick up the book "Puppy Knits" (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1933308060/sr=8-1/qid=1141131192/ref=pd_bbs_1/103-6822710-6609460?%5Fencoding=UTF8). All the patterns are for smaller pooches.

I also like "Knitting For Dogs" (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0743270169/sr=8-3/qid=1141131261/ref=pd_bbs_3/103-6822710-6609460?%5Fencoding=UTF8), which even has a Yorkie on the cover!

Thanks Kelly. I will be sure to look at the patterns. My bf says that knitting a sweater for a dog is nonsense. Lol. But they're so cute! :rofling:

I have to say your Yorkie is a CUTIE!! :inlove:

There's nothing wrong with knitting a dog a sweater either. I plan on knitting a sweater for my mom's best friends dog.

Thx guys! I luv the doggie hoodie. That's cute! Btw, the yorkie isn't even mine, it's my brothers. Hehe. :D My mom spoils him like it's hers. I just love him to death. :inlove:

Have you decided what to knit yet?

Nope, not yet. But the hoodie keeps lingering in my mind... ;) (The ssk is kinda scary. Never tried that stitch before.)

SSK isn't that hard. Just remember to slip the stitches KNIT wise onto your right needle and knit them together. It took me a few tries to get it but I finally did :)
