And another small project - a "party" sweater for Lizzy. The inspiration for the sweater came from this gorgeous free pattern on Ravelry - Silver Belle, which is in my immediate plans, especially if I can find some suitable yarn in green - I like the green versions on Ravelry.
Pattern: Purple Belle (personal pattern)
Yarn: YarnArt Merino De Luxe, appr. 80 g and some Lurex yarn from my stash
Needle: 3.5 mm
Time to knit: two or three days
The hoodie is knit from side to side, with short rows, casting off and then casting on for the leg openings. I used provisional cast on and then 3 needle bind off for the belly closing. The stitches for the hood and the skirt are picked up additionally. The frills for the skirt are created by doubling the stitches on the fifth row and again doubling the stitches on the 9th row.
The sleeves are added to the body using the entrelac technique.
Knitting for small dogs is such fun!
