Theodore's Sweater

I just completed my first puppy sweater. He wasn't too happy about me trying it on him, but we both survived. It was a really basic pattern, but I was really happy to have made it all the way through the project without dropping any stitches. A first for me!

Theodore is adorable!.........................
Is he going to be a Westie when he grows up? I'm afraid that I don't have enough yarn, even in the stash, to make a sweater for our Golden Retreiver, Rio. To the contrary, I think that everything I knit has a little Golden in the blend.
Thanks for sharing the the pic!

Topping off at just under seven pounds, Theodore is as big as he is ever going to be. He is a miniature schnauzer / yorkie mix.

I have seen some awesome dog sweaters online ... from books that I don't have yet... sweaters with cables, sweaters in football club colours, sweaters that make the dogs look like dragons ... maybe I will find one of these books when I go home for summer/your winter next week and bring them back. If I do manage to find a good one, I could email a pattern to you. I'm at the same level as you are. I am new to this gig too. Just finishing my first sweater. My dog is freezing here (and me too) here in Istanbul, it will snow soon and he needs a sweater. Unfortunately for him, he'll have to wait until I get back from home in Australia before I can knit him up something. It snows seriously in February here, so I have a month I suppose.

Nice sweater and a loveable dog. If he is like mine, he rules the house.

He may have given you trouble during fittings, but he certainly seems pleased to be wearing it!

My first Doggie Sweater is actually my picture on the site. My spoiled Cocker thinks she is hot stuff when I put her sweater on.

I made our italian greyhound a sweater a few years ago... I keep intending to make matching ones for both our almost-3-year-old daughter and our dog. Hasn't happened yet though - maybe this year.

Grace and Peace,
