My sister asked me to knit her dog, Frankie, a sweater for Christmas. I've never made one before so found this pattern at Yarnspirations. It's considered an easy pattern (and it was) so I thought it was a good one to start with.
Though the pattern calls for two colours and stripes, I just use one colour (Craft Smart Value Yarn in Neon Yellow from Michaels ... it's a LOT brighter than in the pictures) because I wanted to focus on the pattern since it was the first time I'd tried it. Frankie is a black poodle so this sweater will "pop" on him plus make it easy to find him in the dark!
I made a medium one. My sister had given me Frankie's measurements and it came out exactly as the pattern said it would. I hope it fits him.
I had to use a stuffed dog to see what it would look like since neither of our cats was interested in modeling the sweater!
It was easy and fun to make and I'll be sure to make a couple more for Frankie, using different colors.
