Here’s one way to let everyone know you — and even your dog — resist Trump, Bannon and the rest of the current government. Use my #RESIST chart (available in two versions) to knit yourself a hat, headband, scarf, cowl, sweater or even some pupwear. Both my dogs’ sweaters are knitted using a standard sweater pattern and the 36-character chart. The slightly bigger chart would be more appropriate for a larger dog or a human sweater or scarf. Have fun!

‘Raspberry Fool’ Crocheted Dog Sweater
The clear, bright pink of this lovely Malabrigo colorway, Geranio, took me back to a day in the summer of 1969, when my college friends and I picked buckets full of fresh raspberries on a farm in Pennsylvania. That evening, I found a recipe for “Raspberry Fool,” a deep-dish cobbler, and we all devoured it while watching the men walk on the moon and marveling at how far our country had come.
One skein ~ quick and easy!
This is my first crochet dog sweater pattern, inspired by that long-ago raspberry patch. This little item uses almost all of one skein of Malabrigo Merino Worsted (216 yards) for the medium size and is a very fast project. Fits pups with 14, 16 or 18″ chest.
