Twilight Sparkle Dog Snood Free Knitting Pattern and Yarn Review | Posh Pooch Designs

Red Heart Yarns sent me this awesome yarn
Red Heart Boutique Twilight - Romantic
I had other projects and patterns
 that need to be finished,
But I just had to try this new yarn.

It is so sparkly and soft.
The Colors are very vivid, too.
It is a super bulky yarn, but not heavy.
I crocheted a little with it, which was nice, 
But I decided I wanted to knit with it.
It knits up great!

As you can see,
 I designed a cozy Snood for my pooch.
I added one of the polymer clay buttons I made. 
Learn how here:
 How I make Polymer Clay Buttons
You can see the sparkles better in this pic.

This is a great Knitting pattern,
 if you have been wanting to learn to knit.
It is super easy and stitches up quickly.
I made  2 of these in a little over an hour.
And Using the big needles and Bulky yarn,
 you get great results fast!
