Pepper was so flattered by all the comments that he asked me to post a picture of him in his old sweater, so he can hear just how cute he is some more, he can never get enough of that.
This was the first doggie sweater I ever made: it's from Lion Brand Wool Ease, following the Rover Cover pattern from Knitter's Magazine, the "Giving Great Gifts" edition. It's very beat up, has pulls, and serious pilling (Wool Ease is not exactly sturdy), but it fits well enough and kept Pepper very warm last winter. I think he likes this one better because it's more worn in -- we went right to sleep after today's photo shoot, while on Sunday he sat there looking at me, with the "Are we done yet?" look, 'till I took the new sweater off.
