Love that little bitch...

Here's some pics of my miniature pinscher in her new sweater. Not very good photos: she won't sit still for long when I bring out the camera. What a diva!

What a little cutie! The sweater looks great and I love the color! It contrasts so nicely with her coat.

Thanks so much. I love my little Blanche. She's the apple of my eye, just don't tell her sissy, Stella ;).

Wow... that's beautiful. Looks like it was a lot of work!! What's the pattern. Looks like it would work for Kenneth Chi!! Thanks for sharing the pics!

Thanks. It wasn't terribly hard, just time consuming. The pattern is the Darling Darby Sweater. It's a free download on Ravelry, and it's basically a template. I did the back of the sweater in blackberry stitch. Something about the color made me think of raspberries, so I was inspired to make a similar texture. I had to modify it because I was knitting in the round, and all stitch dictionaries showed the pattern for flat knitting. I have knit "several" different sweaters for both my dogs using this pattern. It's really the best dog sweater pattern I've found, and it's limitless as far as design possibilities. I recommend it.

That's way cool. I love the way the neck blends down into the front, while the back and sides are different.

Very nice and cute. Just what the best dressed dog needs. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

She's a cutie-pie! Great job on the sweater.

I have Italian Greyhounds that should probably wear sweaters, but two of the boys would rather play tug of war with a sweater than wear it. Besides, if they want warmth, they just form a doggie pile under a blanket. If I had just one dog, a sweater might be possible.
