Whoever said “It’s only a dog”, obviously never loved a great dane.

These great dane legwarmers are the pawfect way for you to show the universe how much you love your Giant. Let your inner Danemaniac break loose and dazzle others around you with tremendous adornments. Make the final touch by using your favorite colour in the ribbings and paws. Challenge yourself to try fingering weight yarn and stranded knitting. There is a little advice and information about the techniques included in the pattern to help you out (video links included). I’m offering pattern support as well. So what are you waiting for?

I recommend invisible stranding / ladder-back jacquard techniques that I feel yield the best results, but use whatever techniques work best for you.
