******************************** Buster is a very nice little puppy. His sister is Sophie, and his brother is Charlie. While Buster is the most serious one of the trio, he is not above playing and romping around with his siblings. Taking a refreshing nap in the sun before setting off for new adventures is a must!
The file is 22 pages long and contains 65 detailed step-by-step photographs along with complete pattern instructions how to make this sweet puppy Buster, his jacket, breeches and his bag. All toy's clothes can be removed. The pattern provides all necessary information to make the toy, and also contains links to useful technique tutorials.
This sweet dog is knitted in the round − you need to be able to knit in the round (which is actually not very hard and eliminates the need for seaming). If, in the past, you have only knitted flat, try knitting in the round now. This toy will be your training piece to master the technique of knitting in the round. It is actually so easy and convenient, and toys knitted in the round look so neat, that after having tried just once, you won’t want to miss this handy skill.
The dog’s head is worked flat on two needles, with an intarsia section for the contrasting-colored section of the head. The pattern contains link to tutorial.
