His and Hers



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’

Vital statistics:
‘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

I'm just wondering if they can do swappsies? They look very stylish together by the way. Your dog reminds me of my Daisy, who is a spoodle, what is he/she? Also wondering if you know of a pattern for a knitted Mouse Protection Helmet?? Maybe I could wear a balaclava to bed. Thanks for popping by x

Well, we should all be so luck to have such a smart 'dunny' brush!
