This chair got a second life in my house. I bought it for 20 euro and painted. I painted all furniture in my bedroom with a chalk paint to create a beach cottage style
Dogs love to sleep on the crochet cover I made for this chair.
There are my art works in the room:

I love to make them clothes. We live near the sea so here my love to paint seascapes (check out my second art blog if you love seascapes) and an idea for dogs.

In this post I wanted to give an idea how some very simple vertical purl stitch created a wide rib pattern had changed the design.
this sweater combines Mohair yarn (front and back) and wool for sleeves and neck.
If you want an idea for 3-d design look - there is a nice place I found: http://www.craftcookie.com/knitting-stitches/knit-purl-stitches
The neck: I connected each stitch one by one to the sweater by sewing needle.
It is tricky but it is a great result when your yarn is really heavy.
this is 100% wool yarn and needles used number 8
