I think she may actually like this one! Check out the tail-wagging action:
I used Lambs Pride worsted weight and the pattern is from Posh Pooches, a decent pet gear book with 12 patterns ranging from an iffy dog scarf patterns (for real. would your dog ever wear a scarf unless it was sleeping?) to simple and easily altered sweaters. It came with dog-topped knitting needles, which I may have actually used for this very project (so knitting nerdy!)

Thanks for looking!

That's adorable! Your doggie is a cutie.( his face is groomed really well....from the pics here and in your avatar.)
And, I am sure my chi would try to bite me for trying to put a scarf on her.
I would at the very least get one of her "special" smiles...all teeth bared.

I love that book, and actually both my dogs have the scarf!  One note on the scarf pattern.  In order for it to actually stay on, make the "button hole" smaller than they say.  Really one stitch is probably enough.

Ok, so they don't usually WEAR the scarf.  But they have them. Smiley

I've been working on the blanket in the back for about a year.  Oops.

Awesome job. This may be my favorite doggie sweater ever. If I had a small dog, I'm sure I would subject it to this kind of awesomeness.

I'm a knitosaurus.

EEEeee!  I just got this book.  The needles were one of the reasons I picked it up, sad I know!  I also loved the dog on the box, looks like it's smiling!  I really like how your sweater came out, your pooch is very lucky!

If your dogs are like mine, watch the needles!

One of my dogs ate the needles the first week I had the book.  Ungrateful pppies.

Cuuute! My mom raises rat terriers, they are all country dogs and will rip off any clothes with their teeth. But my boyfriend just got a puppy and I want to get him used to doggie sweaters and jackets as soon as possible. I may need to knit one of these!
