So I have't been around for a while, I kinda got sucked into some other crafting things for a while, but the other day I went to Petco for some cat food and they had this huge rack of dog clothes. I was browsing through the sweaters and I couldn't beleive what they wanted $15 for, something I knew that could probably be hand done for less than $5. Anyway when I got home I looked for a pattern online and I gotta say there weren't many that I liked that were free, but I found this one at lion brand:

So I went rummaging through my stash and found some striping fun fur and some Caron simply soft. I attempted to guage it out but the guage was right for stitches across but not for rows and I wasn't sure how to fix that so I just hoped it would work out right. So I set off working on it and about 10-12 hours later, this came off my needles.

Oh, how nice your doggie looks. Although, I don't think someone likes the flash on your camera very much. :)

Check out Drops Design or Garnstudio (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/soek_siste.php?dag=30), they recently posted some cute doggie sweater designs under the pattern tab within the last 30 days.

Thanks everyone! I think Lowla looks adorable in it. She doesn't really seem to mind wearing it, I dunno if she really LIKES it though. She is a dachsund/rat terrier mix. So really the pattern is too short for her, I plan to make it again but add length to it, probably add a few stitches to the back to widen it out some more since her chest is a little more broad, but i wanted to make it once as is first so I wouldn't mess it up too much! I actually really enjoyed making this.

Lowla is beautiful, and she has such a shiny coat. She looks adorable in her lovely new sweater. It does look like a tutu. :)
