Anyone want to join me??

He's SO cute!!
I have a 1 year old shih tzu Chloe, who I would love to make a sweater for. I have never made anything quite this complicated.
I may choose a different pattern...I'll go on a hunt

Your baby is so cute! I'm trying to learn to knit, so I think that would be too complicated for me to tackle now, besides my shih tzu does not like to wear clothes (nudey pup!).  Best of luck and post pics when its done!

Adorable! I'd love to join you in a pet sweater knitalong if you decide to make another one. I have a mini-doxie that is need of some more warm snuggly outfits.

I have 2 great danes and a lab too but knitting sweaters for them takes FOREVER!!

This is adorable!! I honestly wasn't that thrilled with the one on Knitty but I love yours! The colors are awesome. What kind and color yard did you use?

it was a self stripping yarn. I dont remember what kind of yarn exactly because i bought it like 8000 years ago. Something i changed from the knitty pattern, more by accident than anything, was making the neck section longer and then folded it over into a collar.

Well, looks like I have some searching to do then!! LOL I wonder if it is still being made. I like the longer, folded over neck!
Thanks!

If there's no deadline to when we have to be finished, I'm in!   Smiley

I have 5 little Bostons who would just love some new sweaters. 

Your little Bogart is a DOLL!  So cute, and I love his new outfit!

Bogart is such an adorable furchild!!  You did a great job on his new sweater.  I'd be interested in a kitalong the next time you want to make another one.  I have two wee Brussels Griffons.  Muffin is 10 pounds and Thumbelina weighs 5 pounds.  Do you think I could adjust this pattern to fit them and also make it without the turtle neck?

OMG!  I should have checked your link to the sweater pattern before I made my original post.  I have this pattern and when I saw that sweet little mug on the doggie modeling the original version, I recognized that I printed off this pattern last year.  Will definitely have to give it a try!

I am going to give it a shot for my little Corgi.  Fingers crossed that she will let me put it on her.  She is not always a huge fan of wearing clothes.   Cheesy
