For my Mums birthday I decided to make something really personal for her. So I made a knitted portrait of the family dog Leo.
He is a big gentle giant with an amazing temprement, who loves swimming.
I found a book with some really good patterns in them. It had a golden retriever pattern which I thought was the closest match to leo's body type.
The hardest challenge was matching his colouring.
Here is how he turned out.
