As mentioned on my last post, Felix wanted a Cerberus that looks like her favourite fur-cousin Missy!

Here’s the cutie in question:

I will never tire of posting photos of that dog, she is so cite! Anyway, the first  attempt of the Cerber-issy came out fantastic, but much too large.

So heres my second attempt:

I heavily modified the pattern Husky Dog by Kath Dalmeny from her book ‘World of Knitted Toys’ and I must say, I’m really pleased! Not as detailed as the first, but still cute and it’s the right size!

So, Felix wanted me to knit her a Cerberus to look after her haunted house, easy enough, except it had to also look like her favourite fur cousin, Missy.

Despite her markings, she isn’t a Rottweiler. She is a bundle of adorableness though!

So with that as a my goal, I knit…

Cute, no? Based on the ‘Labrador’ pattern from ‘Best in Show’ by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne. I was planning on knitting the next two heads but…

Poor Missy was now in the cone of shame. What to do?

Put a cone of shame in the knitted one of course! At this point I realised this Cerber-issy was going to be way too big for the haunted house, so this little cutie will be going up to Scotland to join the real Missy whilst I continue with Cerber-issy Take 2!
