20180102_134925530972130.jpgI posted a photo of Brother’s family dog Duffy last week and the sweater I made for him.  Debbie sent me this new photo of him this  morning walking in the cold weather sporting his new attire.  Isn’t he CUTE?!  That reminded me to post the pattern.  I wrote this several years ago after I post photos of Lincoln wearing one I had made up for him.  If you crochet this will give you an idea of how to go about it.  You may have to make alterations in order for it to fit your dog but it’s a start.  The link here will take you to the pattern.

I have had a couple of requests and questions about the dog sweater pattern that I made for Lincoln a few years ago.  I am not a pattern writer but I tried to write down what I did for his sweater since so many people asked for it.  I am sharing it here again.  Remember that Lincoln is a long dog and weights about 55-60 lbs.  The side view of Jed in the blue variegated sweater shows  little more about how it looks.   Feel free to change the pattern as you need for your pet.

You can see other patterns for crocheting by clicking the Crochet tab at the top of the page.

And she went with me to work and greeted people as they came in.

We have had a visitor staying with us this week.

DAISY!  She is a little Westie that just turned one year old.

What fun she has been.  She has stirred Lincoln up and Jed has just tried to steer clear of the craziness.  Since she is just a puppy she has gotten into a lot of “things” this week and been very lively.  🙂

It has been VERY cold this week so I put one of Mamie’s sweater’s on Daisy but it was a little large.  That just meant one thing – Daisy needed a sweater made just for her!  (Here is the pattern for the dog sweater.  It is written for a dog the size of Lincoln but you can adjust it for larger or smaller dogs.)

So I made this green sweater using bulky yarn.  And of course, we needed to decorate it with a daisy – her signature flower.  I think she looks adorable.

Daisy goes home this eveningg and we will miss her terribly.  But the good news is that she just lives a few doors down the street so I am hoping I can convince her mom that she needs to come back often for more adventures.  What do you think?

As I posted a few weeks ago, click here to see more, I have been working on Hunter Orange sweaters for my boys to wear when we go to the cabin during hunting season.  They love to run and play and I want to be sure they are well seen. 

Here they are modeling their new looks. 

And here they are arguing over who wears it the best!

And Lincoln with an expression on his face like “Why me?”

I have been working on sweaters for the boys to wear out at the cabin during hunting season.  I worry about them running loose there with all the hunters around.  Last year I put an orange t-shirt on Jed thinking that would work and he came back about 30 minutes later without it.  I never did find that shirt.

So this year I am making crocheted sweaters that fit tight enough that they can’t pull them off.  Here is Lincoln modeling his Hunter Orange sweater. 

And here is Jed in a teal one that I made first as a prototype.  I had to play with the pattern to make it fit my long and low dogs.  Now on to make an orange one for Jedder Bean!  (Although he looks so handsome in Teal!)
