This week’s knitting post is a sneak peak about something that I am currently working on and have always wanted to do… create my own custom pattern along with instructions and chart! For my first real pattern I decided on a dog sweater for little C.B. and eventually Pierre so that I could have two different sizes available (XS and S). C.B.’s sweater, a gray cable knit, is finished. I have already made a rough draft of the pattern and chart and I will be working off of it while I tweak a few things here and there to accommodate for a larger size that will fit Pierre. These sweaters knit up very fast and are perfect for using up leftover yarn.
This weekend I had a chance to start on Pierre’s sweater while I was snuggled up inside and hiding from the ice storm. This is the same design but slightly larger (and in navy!). There will be a detailed pattern with more pictures coming soon!
