Cute Beanie For Large Dog
"What is more adorable than a dog in a beanie? My dog is very large and finding things to fit her has always been a challenge so I decided to take matters in to my own hands, literally. The hat is made with acrylic worsted weight yarn so it is machine washable. A fun, quick and very easy pattern to make for your furry friend. A big thank you to my beautiful Molly for modelling the hat."
