Sputnik and His Sweater

See Sputnik in his sweater?  Yup, I knit him a sweater.  Since he’s a short haired dog, I figured a sweater would be a good idea for him in the upcoming colder months that I really don’t want to think about right now.

Details?  I used Colette Smith’s Easy-On Dog Sweater pattern available for purchase over on LoveKnitting.com.  As for the yarn, I used the recommended Cascade 220 worsted weight for the project.

He didn’t quite know what to make of his outfit.  He bit at it a little bit, but with some treats and patience, my husband and I were able to get a few photos of him, such as the one above.  Good dog!

I think I overestimated sizing for the sweater, but it still works, and he’s still gaining weight and growing.  Sputnik may fill out into it.  Otherwise, I think it’s a successful project, I’m proud of it, and I my dog looks adorable in it.  Yay!
