A few days ago, my bulldog looked like this:

Now he looks like this:

I just need to finish making the ears. Then all the parts will be done and I will be ready to sew and stuff.

There are a bunch of great posts about this pattern on Ravelry. Here is one of my favorites by Ravelry member justmichelle:

I would also try to trust your instincts, as it seems like a big mess when you first knit it, but actually does have the potential to comes together. Hope this helps! If you get a chance, tweet me a pic when you are done! @annaknitsetc
