6:00 PM - 8:00 PM (EDT)

This is a two part class.  Make sure you register for Part 2 on Sunday, 10/18/2020.

Does your dog deserve the best? Of course! In this two-part class, learn how to make a custom-fit sweater for your pooch. You will learn how to take proper measurements of your dog (live!) and determine style considerations for different breeds, like the long narrow dachshund or the sturdy bulldog. Using a dog sweater pattern template, you will then knit or crochet a sweater with an optional snowflake design. We will also discuss how to modify existing patterns to fit your pet perfectly!
