Bertie's Shetland Wool Jumper

This is the very handsome, Bertie. He lives with my lovely neighbour Gail. She's been trying out some of the undyed wool yarn from my Shetland sheep and knitted Bertie this gorgeous jumper. The starting point for the design was The Perfect Fit Top-Down Dog Sweater by Jessika Lane on Ravelry

Bertie seems to think his owners knitting experience is somewhat limited, however, I would disagree. Gail not only calculated the size and perfect fit but she also incorporated a fair isle motif into the plain sweater design. You can read how she designed the sweater here Too much woolly thinking?

Bertie is a very intelligent wire-hair fox terrier and has his own blog, you can read more about his adventures and 'unique take on life' with Gail on Bouncing Bertie's Blog. His thoughts about his new jumper can be found in this post, "Finished at last, but is it Sunday best?"

As you can see Bertie also likes to pose for the camera!

  1. Bertie is such a cutie pants, and the sweater looks wonderful on her! I'm so jealous of people with dogs who will let them dress them up. My dog thinks he's paralyzed whenever we put a coat on him.

  3. Bertie is thrilled at being featured on this blog. I fear his head will become swollen!

    Susan who commented above should know that it took YEARS of trying before I got Bertie to tolerate wearing anything other than a bandana.

    Cheers,
    Gail.
