FO:Dog sweater
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 (, they recently posted some cute doggie sweater designs under the pattern tab within the last 30 days.
Judge: Madame, either you will have to cease knitting or I will have to cease judging. Which shall it be?

Miss Marple: It helps me to concentrate, milord.

Judge: It does not help me, madame.

Miss Marple: Oh. Very well. (puts away knitting)

Judge: Thank you, Madame.

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.
