Dog jacket?
My best friend wants to start knitting with me! Yay!

She's never knit before and she wants to knit a little jacket for her dog. (a very spoilt cavoodle!)

I haven't really looked for anything, but if anyone knows of any easy dog jacket patterns for her I'd really be appreciative!

Thanks!

A dog sweater isn't the easiest type of pattern to learn on, but if you can help her through learning to knit she'll do fine. You might have her just practice some straight knitting then knitting and purling to get the feel for it first then start.

Here's a few cute ones that look fairly easy -

There are all kinds of patterns here to check out.

Thanks heaps!

I didn't really think about them being hard. I forgot about all of the little doggy legs!

Great links!
