Hot Dog Dog Knitting Kit - Project 8 from First Time Knits

This cute hot dog dog is project 8 from First Time Knits, and it’s up there as one of my all time favourite projects! You’ll need the First Time Knits book which has the knitting pattern for the hot dog dog in, and then you use the materials in this kit to make it. The hot dog dog follows a basic pattern, but introduces a little bit of colour work for the mustard. The First Time Knits book includes a step by step photo tutorial for the colour work, as well as an accompanying video tutorial.

You can now choose between a DK or Chunky Hot Dog Dog.
