His is way too big (and knitted last winter, before understanding the logic in tension squares), hers is too short with a distinctive 80s crop-top feel. Both are in desperate need of a date with the clippers.
The too-short thing was mainly intentional: partly because this is a dog who likes to chew but mostly because that bringing yarn forward and backward rib knit stuff wears thin. As I am typing and pondering the need for the preservation of a dog’s dignity, a comment has popped in for the previous post from REread. Quite rightly, she observes our poor dog “looks like a double ended dunny* brush!” I'm not sure much more need be said.
* For international visitors, ‘dunny’ is colloquial Australian slang for ‘toilet’
‘Hers’ is loosely based on Spunknit’s free pattern, but altered to allow for a larger-than-Pomeranian pooch
‘His’ is a pattern from the Panda Zoomy pattern book (style 5) but uses the same mystery yarn seemingly multiplying in my stash
