Being from the UK and mad about Fair Isle, that would have to be my choice. What a gorgeous puppy, that sweet face comes with real character I suspect.
Definitely the Dean Jacket for outdoors, as she is so young. I do hope the yarn is washable!
The aran sweater is gorgeous, but I think the fairisle would suit Daisy best and be warmer for her.
the jean jacket
but maybe in a different color???
Definitely the Jean sweater if she's a hard player... but maybe add a little lower edge ruffle!
First the cable, it seems to be a quick one, then the fair isle, the weather will be colder, by the time you have finished it, and it is warmer than the first.
Good knitting! Britta.
You might as well settle for 2 right away. She's bound to mess them up if she meets a playmate in the park!
Hard to choose between the Aran cable and the Fair Isle, they're both lovely! the Fait Isle colorway in the photo would go well with Daisy's ear color. And you could knit matching mittens for yourself... of course you could do that with the cable pattern also
They are all so cute, but you have to think of ease of getting on and off - I love the jean jacket one it looks like it buttons at the back - but for a little girl the party one is so cute - Patr from England
The best part is you have a new PUPPY!!!!! I like the jean pattern. It appears to able to stand up to cold winter winds when a girl has to go outside to do her duty. Good luck with the sweater and enjoy your new little one.
I love this book! I used to knit custom dog sweaters for a friend's website, primarily dashshunds, and talk about a tricky fit! This book helped me understand how to fit a dog successfully, and the key is careful measurements. I voted for the Jean Jacket, 'cuz every girl needs a great jean jacket. Since Daisy is still a puppy, and fairly low to the ground, you may want to think about some negative ease in the chest measurement so the sweater fits snugly and doesn't drag on the ground. Knitting for dogs is great fun, and once you start, you won't be able to stop, so I'd imagine Daisy will end up with an entire wardrobe of sweaters!
I think the cabled sweater is lovely. It looks warm and cosy and the cable twists look so pretty. Knitted in a different colour this would really complement little Daisy's coat.
P.S. Love Knitting Daily
My vote goes to the Jean Jacket. Why? Well, if you're in a hurry then Fair Isle and cabling are time-consuming. Also, stash-busting is good! Makes room for new yarn! The party dress is cute but rather impractical.
Love the Jean Jacket and think it would look great on adorable little Daisy. If I had a puppy I think that's the one I'd choose to keep her warm!
