So this is Wendy. She's not my dog, but she is my friends dog, and after forcing my own little Schnauzers to model countless sweaters for me, I 'borrowed' Wendy. Well actually I'm dog sitting her while my friend is out of town and it just happened to be a good occasion to make her a sweater.

So here it is. It's not a shrug like some of my other patterns, this is actually a cardigan. Tapered on the under side to allow for easy potty access. Knitted on 10 1/2 circs. No real pattern, though it does follow the pretty mundane top down raglan theme, though I placed the sleeves a little farther forward than you would for a human.

Knitted quick, last night and this morning. Finished weaving in ends between watching The Breakfast Club and starting High Fidelity.

Still needs Velcro on the underbelly to keep it closed.

So cute! I really love the colour. (and the dog!)

Have you posted a pattern or anything for your dogsweaters that I maybe missed (hopefully Wink)...? My parents have a pair of schnauzies that need some  new sweaters Smiley

*going to search now*

ETA: I searched, i found CUTE sweaters, but sadly no pattern Sad
(I did bookmark your etsy store in hopes it appears there one day)

Too cute! And she looks like she loves the attention it gives her, too.
