 spin to the front, and get caught in the legs and nails, if they are too long.

Which Red Heart Yarn, I can not decide? | Posh Pooch Designs

Here is the Issue.
I just found out these 2 yarns, 
and few more, 
are on there way to 
my house this week.
So, I have decided to design a
 new dog Sweater Pattern
But, I can not decide which yarn to use.

I haven't decided on a "design" yet,
But I am thinking Spring-Summer.

I love icelandic because it has a beautiful
ocean waves sort of vibe to it.

But I absolutely love 
black and pinks together, 
and the shades of the Panther pink. 
I really love using Red Heart Super Saver
 for making and designing 
Dog sweaters and things.
 It is durable, washable and 
comes in so many fun 
colors and variations.

If you want to soften it up, 
just wash your item, 
on gentle with a little fabric softener.
I always sun dry mine, But you can 
put it in the dry if you like.

Soooooooooo,
Which Would you pick and way?

Leg Warmers For Your Dog Free Knitting pattern - 3 sizes | Posh Pooch Designs

Now Maximo can go outside and go potty, 
and keep his legs warm.

He hates the cold and sometimes will 
not go out side. We get a lot of snow,
 and snow drifts,
 And these legwarmers are the perfect 
solution for cold dog legs.
The yarn is
Sock yarn (1)
I really love the striping effect
 this yarn has. 

I designed this yarn in 3 sizes,
X Small, Small and Medium
for Dogs 2-20 lbs
But it is easily adjustable to any size dog.

          I used Red heart - Heart and Sole

Stitches -

Bind Off ( BO)

Purl (p)

Sizes - XS (S, M) 
These sizes are approximates, as all dogs are shaped different.
             X Small- 3.5 x 3.5 inches - 2-7 lb dogs
             Small - 4.5 x 4.5 inches - 8-12 lb dogs
             Medium -5.5 x 5.5 inches - 13-20 lb dogs


 Note- These are very stretchy, and easily stay put on your pets legs.
So do not be afraid to make them smaller then you think.

You are basically making a ribbed Square,
 the sewing the sides together.
They are so fast to whip up, that

They are very stretchy because of the ribbing.
They slide on and off super fast.
