hi everyone! happy v-day.
i'm knitting a stuffed dog without a pattern (fist attempt at knitting sans pattern... eek!). i'm knitting it in the round, so far i have the back half of the body (basically a closed tube), and i'm thinking about how to transition to the chest, neck, and head. i was thinking about doing some short row shaping for the chest, so that there's like an angle, if that makes any sense. i'm guessing i would need decreases on the opposite side (the dog's back) to compliment the angle so it's not like the dog has a boob. does this sound like it would work?
here is a stuffed dog with shaping similar to what i want to achieve. so, if the short row shaping would work, would i just reverse it for the angle of the head joining the neck? i've not done short row shaping yet, so i'm not sure what it's capable of... then i'm planning on doing the decreases for the snout and sewing the ears on later.
what do you y'all think? i welcome any thoughts or advice.
thanks in advance,
