Charlotte's instincts were right. Scruffy was (and continues to be) the perfect pooch. He is smart, loving, and a snuggler. He likes to go for walks, play with his toys and hang with his dog buddies. He is just the happiest little guy and so lucky to have finallly landed in a happy home. He has filled out to a healthy weight and every now and then a hair cut evens up the longer hair sections with the shorter ones.
While on vacation in January, I was thinking of Scruffy when I designed a sweater with a diamond-like panel down its back. I had red tweed yarn with me and the prototype sweater fit my dog Tyler perfectly.
Tyler has a very skinny neck so I tweaked the pattern a bit for the neck circumference and length and made a couple other adjustments to get the patten 'just right'.
Then I knitted a blue one for Scruffy. He likes it. JoJo happy!
You will find this pattern on my For Pets page.
Make one for your precious little gem!! They will love you for it.
I'll donate all the proceeds raised by pattern sales to help other 'diamonds in the ruff' to find their forever homes.
