This is our Cocker Spaniel Athena. Doesn’t she look adorable in this doggie sweater I made for her? I purchased a crochet desk calendar this year that has patterns on each day. I’d been wanting to make Athena a sweater and I found the perfect pattern in this calendar.
It’s made with alternating rows of treble crochets and single crochets. Alternating front and back post stitches are used across the chest to make a more comfortable, stretchy fit. The “turtle neck” is made with ribbing, crocheting in the back loop of each row – an effect that I am particularly fond of as it gives a piece a very nice finish.
Athena’s had her own store-bought sweater up till now, however it’s been so cold this winter that she’s really worn it out. She ought to stay warm now!
