Knit Mitts for the Dogs

Knit a pair of doggie mittensI haven’t been doing a very good job of keeping up with the monthly mitten patterns from Kat at Just Crafty Enough, so the August entry is a couple of days late.

Last month she chose to feature colorwork mittens with dog motifs. Or dogs, bones, fire hydrants and paw prints, to be more exact.

It’s a rather complicated chart so you’ll want to have a few colorwork projects under your belt before you do these, but if you’re a dog lover — or want to knit something for a dog lover — these are a great choice. I can just see someone out walking the dog in the cold of winter in their dog mitts. How cute would that be?
