What was your inspiration?
Every dog needs a sweater!
I started "playing" with designing the perfect fitting dog sweater years ago - our first Whippet was very patient with me-lol. Darling Darby is the result of careful attention to a dogs anatomy and coming up with the best way to fit sweaters to dogs.
What are you most proud of?
Darling Darby is shaped like dogs - and therefore fits better than other dog sweater patterns.
The Darling Darby Gallery on my web site shows the many different size dogs knitters have used this pattern for.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
As a guide for a custom fit sweater it is important that you do a gauge swatch, and measure carefully. The pattern includes a guide for measuring your dog and places to note your calculations.
