Puppy Clothes

It's taken a bit to get the pics up for this (the green one) since most pictures of Jack look like this:
This dog just doesn't sit still! In the meantime, I had a chance to finish sweater #2 so now I have 2 FO's to show off when we had better luck with the camera today (I bribed him with bacon cheddar doggie biscuits). So I present to you the (mini) doggie fashion show starring: Jack!

Sweater #1 is knit in Lion Brand Wool-Ease thick & quick in the colors of grass and pine and knit on size 15 needles. Pattern is by me. The original design had a V-neck but it looked funny on my small dog, so I sewed it up and now it has a plain front and a roll-neck collar in back. This was great because it was a SUPER fast knit (I'd say maybe 2.5 - 3 hours max). I'm going to try an adapted version of what I did in the round so I don't have to do seaming.

Sweater #2 is a very adapted take on Buster by Berroco. Berroco's pattern is only for medium-large dogs (and jack is on the xs side of small) so with some gauge change, stitch count change, yarn change and more really it just kind of looks like Berocco's but is pretty different in construction. I used some leftover Red Heart Soft Yarn in black and size 6 needles.
