Apparently my doggy isn't very happy with her new sweater.
I used a pattern I found online here:

A few hours & some scrap yarn & I have one unhappy dog. She really does like her sweater, she's just a bit freaked out that I put her in my yarn. I spend a lot time unwrapping her and shooing her away from my yarn. She didn't know what to do when I started trying in on her with the strings still attached!

I agree.  Its like shes thinking "oh, I love how comfy this sweater is!  I want one in every color!"

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I would comment on the sweater but I'm really too busy looking at how cute the puppy is.

Great job Tongue

Love the whole dog/sweater thingy, but the dog is TOO cute.  How many sweaters have you made and how many colors?  Your little one looks to be about the same size as my little guy, do you think the chest area is short enough to work around the "male ness" issue?  Changes shouldn't be too hard though.  Thanks for the pictures and the link!

I added a row to the chest area, you can easily adjust for the chest area for a boy bits! Next time I think I'm going to make the 1st row with a larger hook to make it a little easier to slip over her head.... the rest of the sweater is stretchy but the chained edge is not. I may also reduce the arm hole by a few chains as well. My dog has skinny legs.

Good luck! Can't wait to see what you come up with.
