    Hello everyone.
    Just joined in and I have allready a question.

    Can somebody help me?
    I want to knit sweaters or jumpers for my two bulldogs, but over here in Holland I can not find a pattern. I tried in every possible way.

    If you can help me, thank you very much on behalf of Saartje and Bram.

    And also Manuela

    Welcome Manuela, Saartje and Bram. I don't know how to knit but someone should be along shortly who does. In any case glad you've found our forum. Feel free to ask any questions and if u wish you can post pictures of your bulldogs with their hand made outfits if they have some already.

    Welcome Manuela! A friend of mine (former boss, actually) just moved BACK to Holland a couple of months ago.
    Don't forget to post pictures of your babies - before and after sweaters are knitted. :-)

    Grandma purchased Bea a sweater once - but it didn't fit her little wine barrel body very well. And her wool jacket? A slight improvement (pictured). I don't knit but I would guess that true fit is very definitely individual to each dog's shape. Bea and Bo couldn't be shaped more differently.

    I don't know of any patterns for knitting dog sweaters either. I made up the patterns for the outfits I sew from measurements of the dog and measurements from another fleece HRH already had. But for knitting you would have to know your gauge of stitches per inch (cm?) to even begin to make up a pattern.

    I know nothing of patterns or sewing but could you disassemble something that fits them perfect and make your own using it like a pattern?

    Hi and glad you found EBN! I'm particularly fond of your country...it's really very lovely. My cousin lives in Den Hague (sorry if i misspelled that).

    I only knit scarves and the occasional cap so i cannot help you there. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your bulldogs!

    Thanks for your message in return en the wunderfull picture of your wine barrel.

    Can you tell me where I can get a pattern of the jacket your dog is wearing on that pic. I can used it as a base-model. To make it fit I can make the changes myself.

    Thank you and best regards.Attachment 0-brammetje-1-jpg-speeltijd-3-jpg
