Isn’t (S)he Lovely?

Couple of weeks ago, someone on Ravelry posted her version of a Little Black Dress for her dog, a larger breed of some sort, probably a Lab.  The woman had decorated a black dog collar with various charms and trinkets, and it was adorable.

Since I’m blessed with a tiny dog, my Yorkie Willie, I decided to take the idea one step further and make an actual Little Black Dress With Pearls to fit the smaller breeds, and publish another FREE PATTERN for you here.  Willie spends a lot of time indulging his feminine side anyway, so he didn’t mind doing a bit of cross-dressing for the camera.  What a ham!



This is a really easy, quick knit, and this time I tried using an inexpensive yarn, Caron Simply Soft.  I was quite pleased with the results.  Both yarn and pearl trim ~ on sale a little while ago at Jo Ann’s ~ came in at under $5.00.  The free pdf download is on my FREE PATTERNS page.  Enjoy!

    Me: Come look at Willie wearing Kay’s new pattern. Look at that dress on him!

    Jeremey: Him? That poor dog.

    Whaddya mean, poor dog??? My boy is confident enough in his masculinity to spend his whole life in drag if he wants to!! He fairly oozes testosterone, can’t you see?

    Am just finishing this pattern, it is so great! I did the first ruffle with no problems but I am having a hard time understanding the instructions for adding the second ruffle. I understand that I pick up the second ruffle’s stitches from the RS but then I get lost – do you mean approximately 1″ up from the first ruffle’s bound off edge? When you say pick up stitches as before is it in the original number (35) or the end of the first ruffle’s number (70)?

      Turn the work toward you right side up, with the completed ruffle at the bottom and the right (knit) side facing you. About an inch up from where the first (bottom) ruffle began, pick up the original number of stitches (about 35) across. When you have all those picked up, turn your work upside down so you can work back across those stitches, right to left, and kfb across. Then you will turn it to the wrong side and purl a row. Then kfb across — so you will then have quadrupled your stitches, as you did for the first ruffle, and continue on as you did for the first ruffle. The second ruffle will be identical to the first, just about an inch higher up on the garment. Good luck!
