I made my puppy in an alpaca yarn so he is really soft and cuddly. He has a sweater with raglan sleeves and a front pocket for carrying doggy snacks.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work simple increases and decreases, change colours at the ends of a row, and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The puppy is 33cm tall.
