This cozy pet bed features a knitted outer ring that has a rich texture of 'hugs and kisses' - (cabled X's and O's). The center is crocheted, but if you prefer, you can simply use wool felt as the center base. The finished diameter is approximately 17" across. The pattern is sized for a smaller dog breed (or a cat). If you would like to make your bed larger, simply add length to the outer knitted tube, and adjust the diameter of your base.

I started with crafts when I was about 9 years old. I learned to knit, and I still remember everything about that experience: from the yarn (a cherry red worsted, purchased at the Woolworth store downtown), the needles (a lovely set of pink aluminum size 11), the project (a poncho, with white fringe - ala Santa!). It was made with simple stockinette stitch in a rectangle shape, and then folded into the poncho, with the fringe added. I had the parents on the block paying me to teach the other children (who frankly, were not that interested in learning to knit!). I didn't give up teaching, though, I have taught classes in beadwork and crafts, and it's always very satisfying to see someone get 'hooked' on a creative pursuit.
