Reindeer Hats – Bit Late For Christmas!

I was asked to design and knit some Reindeer hats for 2 young boys I know.  I decided to make a knitting pattern for the Reindeer hats while I was designing and knitting the hats.

When I took the hats to the boys they couldn’t have shown their excitement any better than they did.  Running around shouting.  It took their mum a few hours for Corey to stand still in his long enough to take  a photo.

The boys have a lovely black labrador dog called Rex, as a surprise I designed and knitted a collar cover with matching antlers for Rex.

Well everyone else liked him in the antlers!  I tried the collar cover on my dog Saxon first to make sure they would stand up how I wanted!

He doesn’t look very impressed either.  Even though he was being bribed to sit still with a treat!

    I’d like to make one for my adult son who drives a school bus. How easily is the pattern adapted to a larger size?

    Hi,
    I really like the things you have done for the dogs! Can you tell me if you will be doing any more fun/themed patterns for dog?
