...just so I could make my baby this:





Taught myself to knit over the holidays. Truth be told, I have always wanted to learn, but Tilly needing a sweater was what pushed me to finally do it. Tried store bought ones, but she's shaped funny, like a greyhound, and has a tiny chicken neck but a big barrel chest. For any of you that knit, it's a great pattern. It tailor makes the sweater to your dog. You use your gauge and dog's measurements to calculate cast on stitches, increases, decreases, etc... Fits her like a glove but the ribbing (all around the edges, leg holes, neck, and even down through the chest) keeps things flexible. My baby stays nice and warm. :)

That looks fantastic. I only know how to knit in a straight line, but I love to crochet. Seeing this beautiful sweater makes me want to learn to knit tho.

Great Job!!!!! I also just taught myself to knit and made Draco a sweater...mine does not have legs though...It is so much fun, I made an earwarmer for myself out of the extra yarn.

How lovely! Both the sweater and the babies!! I LOVE her coloring!

Mine is so small still that I am having trouble finding things that fit snugly. If they are loose at all she flops around and bites and pulls at it! This one fits perfectly!

That looks great on her. I thought about learning so I can make Radley some sweaters, as all the store ones are either too girly or too big for him at the moment.
My mother is a dressmaker and she has already offered to make him a jacket to wear when we go for walks.
Do you have the pattern on email?
