Details for the Knitters.
Yarn: Briggs and Little Heritage Colour: Hunter Orange - 33
Needles: 4.5mm Bryspun dps, I use the older style ones made in New Zealand.
Pattern: Little Penny Sweater - designed by Corinne Niessner
Book: Doggie Knits: Sweaters & Accessories for Your Best Friend
Modifications: Two things I do with with any dog sweater pattern I make.
- I always add 8 to 10 centimetres more to the collar length because I want something which will keep Robin warm during a Canadian fall.
- I crochet a row around the leg holes to stabilize them and to give the opening a more finished look.
No other modifications were required, this was a fun pattern.
She is very proud of her hunting sweater, and has been wearing it almost every day. This is a simple pattern to knit and I like the interesting detail, created by the increases, on the front.
