Idog Outfit
I can't believe I actually did this!!! I'm a rusty newbie knitter and recently picked up the addiction again after setting down my needle for 5+ years.....

DD (5y, in pic) got an IDog for her birthday last November, and she asked me to knit "Pinky" a hat & scarf set like those she'd seen in the store (but to which I kept saying no to buying). So....I let her pick the yarn (bright w/a silver glittery thread and some small beads) and I took on the challenge. I googled and couldn't find a pattern, so I made a swatch and just kinda winged it -- it turned out pretty good I think -- and best of all, DD LOVES it!!

What a nice mommy! It came out so pretty and DD is adorable!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
