Welcome to the K9 Knitters Page

Over the years, people have knitted and donated their jumpers to K9 Search UK for the strays from our area.  However, due to a change in operating systems, we no longer come into contact with stray dogs so the need for jumpers has diminished.  

Please feel free to use the patterns below to make them for your own dogs or maybe some for your local dog rescues.

Sorry but we will no longer be able to provide support to knitters.

Thank you all for your support over the years, its been greatly appreciated.

Happy Knitting!
