Your four-legged friends will look adorable in these paw-fect outfits!
The "Sean Connery"
Models: Ashley Lenat (script supervisor) and Polo (peekapoo)
- Ollie wore a polo neck inspired by Sean Connery in early "James Bond" movies.
- Timelessly elegant; also stylish on girl dogs, like a pair of "boyfriend-jeans."
- Simple to knit; shown here in tweed, which adds textural interest.
- All you need to make this outfit is tweed yarn.
- It's a fairly basic design, perfect even for beginner knitters.
Models: Allie Wyman (intern) and Lola (yorkshire terrier)
- Perfect for carrying tiny dogs.
- Makes your dog feel warm and secure and is knitted with the softest wool.
- Pattern comes from Sally Muir's grandmother -- she used it to knit for World War II troops.
- Perfect for an intermediate knitter: Rosebud pattern adds complexity.
- Lined with mattress ticking, for extra support.
- To make this project, you'll need soft mohair-mixed yarn and satin fabric for lining straps.
Models: Kim Miller (supervising field producer) and Ollie (golden doodle)
- The sporty look.
- Designed in Manchester United colors; inspired by David Beckham.
- Can be made in your favorite team's colors.
- Fairly simple to knit
- It's in double-knitting, which is very easy to get a hold of; can be made in your own team's colors with any number you like.
- Your dog will feel properly dressed as he chases a ball around the park -- perhaps he could get some friends together for a match.
- This could be made by a beginner knitter, but you'll need to know how to make numbers.
Anti-Firework Dog Balaclava
Models: Aaron and Buddha (pug)
- Possibly the most practical design.
- Will protect your dog's sensitive ears.
- Easy to make.
- Designed in a soft mohair mix, with Princess Leia-style earmuffs for extra protection.
