Color Block Dog Shrug Knitting Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

I have a Dog Shrug Crochet Pattern
I Wrote about 1  1/2 years ago.
You can find that at this link:

I got so many requests for a knit version
That I decided to design a simple pattern
 that can be easily size adjusted.
As well as, made in any color or colors of yarn.
I Love This picture of Rosie.
 I think she got bored in the middle
 of the photo shoot.

Whatever you want as embellishments.
You can stitch up the shrug in 1 color, or use variegated.

This is the perfect addition to any dog dress or sweater
When the weather turns cool.
Rosie can still wear her favorite dress, and be warm.
It is also fun warn alone to add an extra little warm
 to your outside time with your pooch or cat.
Have Fun

in your favorite color.
