This started out as the Howl dog sweater from Stitch n Bitch but I didn't like the cowl. I wanted something that would keep the dog's ches warm and the cowl was too big. Well, after 4 attempts at a neck that would fit, this is what I came up with. The sweater itself is still a little big and she manages to get her legs out of the armholes sometimes but other than ripping the whole thing apart, I don't think there's much I can do about it. I guess we'll have to live with it. I think this is my first finished project that I've put on here. Shocked

what yarn did you use for the body? I like it. I think it looks great. I have 2 small dogs and one loves her sweater and the other sees it as something attacking her. They are sisters too so I guess it makes sense.  Your dog at least seems to like it, isn't that what matters? Smiley

That is so very, extremely and adorably cute! I wonder if my cats would wear sweaters?!

Help! My Stash is trying to eat me!

Aw, that's so cute! I really like the yarn you used for the body!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.

Thanks everyone! She does seem to like it. She actually sat for me when I went to put it on like she was waiting for me to do it! I don't remember what the yarn was. It multi-colored yarn was a bulky yarn on clearance at JoAnn Fabrics last year. I loved the colors. The neck is just Red Heart or something like that from Walmart. I tripled the strands to make it comparable to the bulky.
Thanks again! Maddy says thanks too!  Wink
