I just finished the dog's Fisherman Sweater from the book Stylish Knits for Dogs. I seem to be the first one on Ravelry with this (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Arielluria/fisherman-knit-sweater)! (Ravelry page link) It's adorable if I do say so myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course the man.........er dog...............makes the sweater :teehee:

I made it in the non-traditional gray because Peanut himself is the traditional off-white, so you wouldn't really notice it on him!

I did 2 things differently from the pattern, I made the sleeves 1 1/2" shorter and I added one more button.

That's really awesome. I'm also impressed he models it soo well. One of my dogs would never sit still for such things and while the other will let me get things on her, she has them off and is chewing on it before you can get the camera.....

Beautiful sweaters and cute dogs. Are they Shih Tzus, Lhahsos or some of each?

Getting them to look good in a picture is pure bliss, there are a lot of pictures that get deleted before I get a good one.:teehee:

BTW, your cutie in the avatar is adorable too!

Very handsome sweater. Many of the traditional everyday fishermans' sweaters were navy blue I think. The gray looks dashing on Peanut.

The dog(s) and the sweater are darling. He poses so well, knows he is a top fashion model and shows it. :cool: I must make one for my little cutie pie too. Thanks for sharing. :yay:

I love it! I LOVE Peanut!!!
:muah:Thanks! You can get your own Peanut at www.petfinder.com ;) Can you believe he had to be rescued because someone gave up this adorable and loveable dog (he's a snuggler) because they had a baby?!? :nails: They missed out on a great family dog!
