Be My Valentine??
Pretty, pretty please!?!?!?!
Dulce would love nothing more than for each and every one of you to be her Valentine. Really. She loves everyone. They don't come sweeter than her.
The dogs both need new sweaters. Much like I slacked in knitting Mike a winter hat, I've been a terrible puppy mommy and put off knitting sweaters for my furry babies. This sweater wasn't purposefully a Valentine's sweater, but the timing did seem to work out particularly well. I mostly wanted to make Dulce a sweater that was as sweet and darling as she is.
This sweater is directly inspired by Ms. Savannah Cottage's Puppy Love Dog sweater. I adore her patterns, alas, Dulce is much larger than a yorkie. And, Dulce has an unusual body shape. Her part corgi/part beagle??? make-up has left her with short little legs, a long body, and a sturdy chest. I've been toying and fussing with the fit of this sweater for weeks. I'm still not completely pleased with it. I'm contemplating cutting off that collar and working some short-rows over the backs of the shoulders.... Thoughts? As far as the colorwork pattern is concerned, I mostly ad-libbed. The yarn is Knit Picks Palette: Serrano, White and Cotton Candy.

Oh my goodness! That is the cutest dog sweater I have ever seen! Dulce looks adorable in it. I just went and put the pattern in my Ravelry queue. Nicely done!

What a cute little Valentine Dulce is! If she seems fine with the collar, I'd leave it. I think the whole sweater looks great!!!

The sweater is adorable. It doesn't seem like she minds the fit.

Aw, what a cutie pie! That sweater looks totally darling on her and it looks like a perfect fit to me! As a puppy mommy myself, I know how hard it is to resist knitting them something cute and warm! Except my lil Leo has chewed a hole in his newest sweater. What a naughty pup!
