Coming this weekend!

The doggy sweater is here to go with the Mello Kitty sweater. Labradoodles and Daschunds! Looking at the sweater from top down, doggies chase birds and often tear up gardens and yards (hence the upside down plants) and you can then choose from bones or bunnies for your sleeves - or leave them blank. Or make it short sleeved.

There are two dogs to choose from (please don’t complain that your beloved German Shorthaired Pointer isn’t there - these two were hard enough to design when you’re no good at drawing!)

Colors need to be contrasting! If you have trouble with a 4th color, charcoal, black, pale gray or natural tend to work well.

The sweater is designed to measure 2” larger than your actual bust measurement so pick the size that is 2” larger. The top two have zero and 4” ease. The teal (Cascade Heritage - picture 4) one was made for a pre-teen and for some reason I thought I’d try to squeeze into it; it has negative ease. The speckled pink one in Hedgehog sock (picture 5) has 2” ease.
