Fashion Show

OK folks – the time is here. Chaco’s sweater is finished and he has posed for the camera (well, sort of).

The pattern is from a site “Groovy Crochet”.  You can see the pattern here.  Now I have to crochet one for the other wiener dog, as his store bought sweater doesn’t fit or stay on very well.  At this pace, he may have a “Spring Sweater” :)DSC_0397 I used little wooden buttons.  He keeps trying to chew them, but in the meantime, I think it will serve it’s purpose. 
~Happy Holidays ~
Addendum:  Since my dogs love to chew on wood, one of the buttons has already been absconded and chewed.  Grrr, says the crocheter.  Living in the country has such drawbacks..I wish to go to my local fabric/sundry store to shop for the appropriate/sturdy/plastic buttons for these sweaters, but alas -

the best we have is Alco and nothing else for over 100 miles.  So today I will go through all the clothes we no longer wear too much to see if there are any buttons I can recycle.

Oh, Pattie,this is so sweet. Chaco looks like one contented dachshund. Have a joyous Christmas and drop by for some holiday cheer.

Adorable!! And with the weather you've been having, he really needs it!

Vern Schwarz said...

Pattie, I think he likes it. And he'll love it when he's outside.

Merry Christmas!
