Knitting For Your Pup
Today, we are taking part in two blog hops. The two hops are Barks And Bytes Blog Hop kindly hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and Heart Like A Dog and Thoughtless Thursday by Ruckus the Eskie and Owned by a Husky.
I was originally going to have a visit from the Poodle Martini Bar with a new cocktail celebrating the arrival of Taz in our life. But that will have to wait.
This week, in my Feedly, Lions Brand had a post that was all about knitting Halloween consumes for your dog.
Up front, I will tell you that this year, I am not knitting any Halloween costume for any of my dogs. I am trying to finish up a pair of socks that I started earlier in the summer.
But all of these free patterns are in my Lions Brand pattern library and some I have already downloaded.
Now, I realize that probably very few of my pet readers knit but it has been on of my hobbies for years. It is really why I started The MeadowTree Journal.
I am also putting a couple of non Halloween sweaters at the end that are easy to try. All titles are linked to their patterns on the Lions Brand website.
So here goes.............
I could see this on Niko all winter. It fits his personality. He is only 9 pounds but thinks he's hot stuff.
I think this pattern is the most versatile. The colors could be changed for a all season look.
Personally I think this one is a bit impractical. I think I would op for fringe but then it wouldn't be an Octopus would it? I do like that it looks like a cape but it is really a sweater.
This is probably the easiest of the group. The shaping is simple and the face can be duplicate stitched on.
I will have to admit, I have always wanted to knit this one for the girls.
This pattern is marked easy. The colors could be changed to make it any combo wanted, I think.
If you crochet, there are plenty of crochet patterns too. The general link to Lions Brand is HERE.
Thank you for bearing with me. That's it for this time and until the next, take care.............Terri and the Pack
