Well, my Princess, my blue and white pitbull, got hives yesterday. I gave her golden seal and two hours later, I noticed they disappeared. The next day, I let her out on the backyard to do her business and she comes back with hives again. I again gave her two teaspoon of golden seal tea. and again they slowly dissipated. So today, I didn't want to let her out the backyard because I was trying to figure out what it was that was causing the hives. So I took her in the front yard with leash and as soon as we step-off the stairs and into the yard the hives began appearing on her hind legs. So I figured it was the cold that was stressing her and causing her to get hives.
So I thought of creating her some kind of cape to go over her back using the crochet granny squares.
here she is, my Princess
The first stage of the cape or crochet sweater.
I noticed that her shoulder and neck is too exposed. So I decided to crochet around the opening for the head and add a collar.
the other side
Here's the sweater with the added collar.
and I crocheted a long chain for the string to hold the bottom.
