Hot Dog Dog Knitting Kit - Chunky Yarn

This cute Hot Dog Dog, project 8 from First Time Knits, is 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 it, and then you use the materials in this kit to make it. You can choose whether or not you'd like to include the book with your kit.

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.
