Introduction: Steve the Dog and His Sweater

Steve is my daughter's dog. I guess he is my grand-dog? Anyway, She called me one day last winter and told me that Steve was cold and asked if could I make him a sweater. So I went to the Lion Brand website and found a pattern for a doggie sweater. I was chaperoning my son's band trip to Disney World a couple weeks later, and I took my knitting on the bus with me. It was a twenty hours bus ride each way, so I had plenty of time to finish the sweater and still get it to Steve while it was still cold!

I'm not as professinal a knitter as you, but I might give it a shot! I have two standard poddle puppies and currently im knitting them leg warmers. Our dogs are about the same size so I can follow the exact details!
It is so cute!

Thanks! He actually "asks" my daughter to put it on him by sticking his nose into it and pawing her!

I like the sweater. I have yet to try and tackle one for my dog. He needs one though.

That is very cute, and he does look stylish. He looks like a rich dog. :-)
By the way, what kind of dog breed in Steve?

Steve is what we call a Heinz dog (57 varieties!), but we think he is mostly greyhound with some beagle. He was a stray that was adopted from a shelter, so we really don't know.
