Dog Bow making instructions

Go to this page, and search "bow" using your browser, there are heaps of threads on how to make dog bows

http://www.groomers.net/discus/messages/126/5315.html

This page http://www.groomers.net/discus/messages/12...html?1052404650 in particular has good instructions hand drawn by one of the contributors.

On you-tube

I had no ribbon, nor a hot glue gun, but found some coloured rafia, some beads, tiny rubber hair ties, a metal crochet hook, needle & thread, and easily managed to make some cute bows.

Enjoy :-)

Please if anybody can help me find Dog Coat knitting and crochet patterns allowed to be photocopied and then coats sold for non profit groups.A lot of the free patterns do not allow this when you read the fine print.I need patterns for people who do not use computers.My computer is too slow to do lots of searching.Albury Dog Rescue doggies will benefit from this fundraising project.Sewn coats are being made too .

Thankyou..Dodo.

Somehow I have managed to lose my knitting pattern book - the Patons one with a dog on the beach modelling a dinosaur jumper. How do I get another one? Can Spotlight order in pattern books?

This pattern says it is free:

http://moonarts.com/blog/free_patterns/pag...eater-print.htm

In the instructions it says:

- Using US 15 needles, cast on 26 sts.

- work k2, p2 rib for 4 rows

- change to US 19 needles, work stockinette for 4 rows

work increases as follows:

- Row 1: k2, k into front and back of next st, k to 4 sts from end, k into front and back of next st, k3

That third line is a little confusing. Would you knit stocking stitch for 4 rows and then increase?

Big W have a pattern book ( maltese in a tux on the front ) . It has 12 different jumpers to knit each having 11 sizes which I have found brilliant. Because it has so many sizes it is so easy to vary the knitting to fit any size dog.

Gosh I have no idea on anyone up here but if you PM the member Warley she makes lovely coats that are custom made to size, she might be able to give you an idea of whether she can help??

I would direct you to her thread on the coats she makes but they are in Off Topic and I don't think you have enough posts to get there yet (keep typing!!!)

I hope that helps :o
