Rocky Sweater

rocky and sweaterI finished knitting a sweater for our beagle Rocky.  It is my first attempt at a Gansey sweater.  It is from yarn from a favorite (now gone) llama named Tudor.  It makes him look a little chubby, and the neck is a little big.  It was a tricky because he has a big dog size chest, but the rest of him is little dog sized.  And it is late getting done as the weather is warming,  But hopefully it will keep him warm next winter.

    Rocky’s sweater is GREAT! It looks like it fits him really well – love the cute little ‘sleeves’ you made in it.

      Thanks Denise! It is easy getting him unit as the sleeves are short and the neck is big. I forgot that the neck is supposed to be folded so might fit him better then. He likes it. Slept in it all night.
