Meet Butch! This is Kristen's little black (Webkinz) lab! She has about 5 little Webkinz guys, 3 are dogs, (she loves dogs) 1 frog and one 'Lil Webkinz' which is a pig. She names them all of course.
I don't know what made me think of knitting a little doggy sweater for them, but I searched on Ravelry last week just to see if I could find anything. There were only 3 patterns for Webkinz, and only one of those was free. So, with some 'old' acrylic yarn, in Kristen's favorite color of orange, I cast on to see what the pattern would look like.
What do you think? Rather cute huh? I thought so, and the pattern takes all of 2 hours to knit! I changed the back slightly. You could either BO straight once you got the length you needed or decrease to 3 stitches at the back. I did neither but just decreased about 3 times, then it was long enough for Butch so I bound off.
Kristen's well pleased with it, now she wants sweaters for all her little guys! Mean while Jaden is sitting patiently waiting for me to pick her up again ;-)
