Like I said, Timmy is ready for a festival!! I think cut the loops. I am always cautious about things that can get my dogs caught on something. So for me, they never wear their collars in the house, or any sweaters or coats that have buckles or may be loose fitting.

One last question Linda, the first red cable knit and the last (pictures) yellow cable knit are the same right? I really like the looks of that one, but which sweater is your favorite?

Opps...one more question! My daughter has a min pin with a cropped tail, would I get him the tail loop too or just a straight one. Not sure a loop would stay on.

Thanks so much to all for the info and the great pictures.

I forgot to mention, you can get any style sweater made with any type of yarn. So if you see a sweater in angora, you can ask her to use wool, acrylic, etc if you prefer.

Timmy looks adorable! Not mean at all. I think Nina is jellous.

I am really enjoying seeing all the dogs geared up.

Karen you are obviously having too much fun playing dress up with your adorable havs. I really like the last picture with the pink sweater and matching pink tongue.

1- Do I add sleeves to the front?
2- Should I cut the loops and make it just strings?



Ive always loved Linda's sweaters and coats Zoey and Maddie have some that they still wear.
I love your sweater you made it really is a cute idea with the loops.
Last year I spend so much money and time trying to make a line of coats ones that they would stay dry. I got one pretty much figured out . The problem was on our first real run her leg fell out and I never tried fixing the problem. I don't like it when its hard to get on so the bottoms were to loose I think or maybe to long?any way I had altered the pattern so much I have no idea where I left off and would take hours to figure out what one I finally used. The blue one has a harness over that I designed of all the prototypes that has worked so far. The white clown out fit lasted one muddy walk Here are some of my coats and Maddie before she ruined her cute hoodie.

That's right Suzi! I forgot about all the time and effort you put into making those items. Either way, Maddie looks adorable what a good sport

Jabojenny....I think that colorful loopy sweater is absolutely the cutest thing ever! It does make you smile...I am chuckling as I write this....keep it like it is!!! Good work!

Suzi...those coats are amazing..good job girl....it does look like a lot of work. Your little Maddie is just the sweetest little one and is such a good model. Love the longer legs.

Estelle,
Here is the raspberry color I told you about. It's the first yarn in the picture below. The sweater looks red but it's actually raspberry. She also has the same color in 100% wool. The yarns below are Dralon.

Maybe I will give this little doggie clothes pattern a try. It does not look super hard and fleece does not ravel.

Suzi the clothes you designed are just too cute! I love seeing all the Havs modeling their gear. the sweaters look so comfortable on them.
