One of my biggest joys of being a dog sitter has been the wide variety of breeds that I’ve been able to share my home with. From border collies to ex racer greyhounds and of course the magnificent otterhound.
It’s not going to be s surprise that they are all fabulous. Any dog owner knows that each dog has their own distinct peronsality and quirks. Cuddly, laid back, cheeky, mischievous, tenacious, and playful, they are all adorable.
But two things they all have in common is that they deserve to well loved and well cared for. Luckily every dog owner I’ve met adores their pet and it’s probably no concidence that the people I count as friends adore dogs too. So I was delighted when expert dog walker Irene approached me to make a dog snood for one her regulars – Billy the greyhound.
Obviously greyhounds have very low body fat and so feel the cold. Billy had been wearing a chunky hand knit dog snood but unfortunately it was unravelling and so Billy was due a new one. So out came the heavy knits so that I could get the structure and fit that would work for a greyhound.
I loved making the snood and a quick search through my leftover fabric stash uncovered lots of merino and cashmere.
Next step the Tiny carbon pawprint range of dog snoods. Each snood has been made in either merino or cashmere wool for that cosy and luxury feel for your fur baby.
Check out my Etsy shop for sizes and colours. Remember all scatty knits’ makes are made from recycled wool and cannot be repeated.
