Happy Friday Everybody! Check out the newest Free Pattern Friday project--the Gooseberry Patch Dog Sweater.
When I saw this easy granny square dog sweater, I thought about all the little dogs that stay in the house in the summer. I thought maybe they might get chilly in the air conditioning. So I decided to try out this pattern in the I Love This Cotton yarn for my niece's miniature dachshund named Miss Weenie. I think it turned out very nice and lightweight.
Poor little dog. Miss Weenie didn’t know what to think, and she was so excited to see me that she had a hard time standing still. Doesn’t she look sweet? Too bad the sweater didn’t fit over her tummy, or she would’ve had a new addition to her wardrobe. That's an easy fix though. I'll just add a square or two, and she'll be good to go.
I also have a tip for you. When I sew snaps or buttons onto crochet pieces, I like to add some fabric or grosgrain ribbon to the back for more stability.
