A good few months ago my friend E, who lives in the US, and I had a conversation on Facebook about matching human and dog jumpers. Yes, seriously. Someone has written a pattern and more importantly someone has knitted them… Now, I love getting nice coloured collars for Molls but E likes dressing her pretty black & white terrier Annie up in outfits. Apparently Annie likes this. I reckon Annie likes the many treats she is bribed with… Anyway I categorically stated I would under no circumstances knit a matching jumper set, but matching shawls (for humans) and bandanas (dogs) would be fun. We agreed we’d make them for each other, using the same pattern (we chose Trillian) but the yarn would be a surprise. E said she liked bright colours… I think Trillian 2 covers that! And now I need to make Annie’s bandana. I was going to just knit a mini Trillian, but I think it needs to be symmetrical,so I’m doing a completely plain Little Rain Clouds, to which I will add the Trillian border 😄. When I get to the correct size I’m going to sew a pop fastener to the outer edges so it stays on.
And when I’ve done this I am going to cast on my godson’s Fairisle jumper!
