Hi, I'm looking for someone who could knit a dog for DD that looks like her dog for Christmas, I do already have a pattern.
In the interest of not drip feeding DD is 17 (didn't want to conjure up a vision of a cute toddler!)
Should add very happy to pay.

Is it knitting or crochet? I could help if it's crochet smile

This is note that came with the patten, so knitting although a crocheted whippet sounds lovely.
Not sure if the two are transferable, my knitting skills only extend to making scarfs when small and crocheting strings with a French doll "thing".

Please note that this is a knitting pattern and not a completed item.

The pattern is quite easy to follow if  you have some knitting experience, using one strand of Double Knitting yarn and size 4mm needles, this pattern makes a Small Danny who measures approx 10 inches long and 8.5 inches high.

Danny the READ Greyhoung works with Corridor Therapy Dogs to help children improve their literacy and is regularly featured on the Greyhounds4me.co.uk website.

If you have any difficulty whatsoever with the pattern, I am happy to offer help and advice and you can email me at valcharman@greyhounds4me.co.uk

Please note: all my knitting patterns are designed and written by me and printed out on an inkjet printer.
