Not Just 4 Greyhounds

This Fisherman Style Sweater pattern was designed for Greyhounds. However, that didn't stop Angela from improvising to make the sweater fit this little Cavalier. She used baby yarn in a pretty pink and a smaller hook.

Angela enjoys crocheting for her own dogs and she also makes sweaters to donate for rescue dogs. The photos below show her beautiful variations with yarn color. She also made the sweaters fit by eliminating a few rows for dogs with shorter bodies.


In July Wyatt, our inspiration, became ill and he left us for the Rainbow Bridge in October. Our hearts are broken but we will go on to try to help other hounds needing homes.
Godspeed Wyatt. We miss you very much.
