See Sputnik in his sweater? Yup, I knit him a sweater. Since he’s a short haired dog, I figured a sweater would be a good idea for him in the upcoming colder months that I really don’t want to think about right now.
Details? I used Colette Smith’s Easy-On Dog Sweater pattern available for purchase over on LoveKnitting.com. As for the yarn, I used the recommended Cascade 220 worsted weight for the project.
He didn’t quite know what to make of his outfit. He bit at it a little bit, but with some treats and patience, my husband and I were able to get a few photos of him, such as the one above. Good dog!
I think I overestimated sizing for the sweater, but it still works, and he’s still gaining weight and growing. Sputnik may fill out into it. Otherwise, I think it’s a successful project, I’m proud of it, and I my dog looks adorable in it. Yay!
