It’s getting chilly. It’s time to go shopping for boots to warm your toes, and cable knits to make you feel snuggly. Supple leather and creamy cashmere is enough to make anyone love the cold weather. It’s also time for your Fluffy, Fido or Fifi to bundle up in a knitted sweater too. Instead of getting something from the store, why not curl up in front of the fire and knit him a pullover? OK, you’re more likely to curl up in front of the TV, but reaching for knitting needles is made easier by Style Hounds Hand Knits (www.StyleHoundsHandknits.com)
Make your own sweater for your style hound. Eight patterns and yarn colors are available in these kits, covering all levels from beginner to experienced. The kits include complete instructions, 100% New Zealand Merino wool and vintage buttons or brass zipper. Create your own designer label sweater with delicious yarns named Persimmon and Lucky Lime. If you’d rather have instant gratification, Style Hounds also offer finished handmade sweaters.
