Now that I've given these sweaters away, I can finally post some pictures on my blog. I couldn't exactly post pictures of "empty" sweaters, now, could I?
My sister took these pictures to show me how cute her dogs looked in them.
I used a pattern from Ravelry called Dog Sweater (how original!). :) It's actually from Coats & Clark.
Max is a toy poodle with a 12” chest and 12-1/2” length (to the beginning of his tail). Like another Raveller, I adjusted the pattern to use just one ball of yarn instead of three. How is that done? By simply making buttonholes for the leg openings, then going back and knitting the legs in the round. It's a lot easier, in my opinion.
Little Black Dress with Pearls Dog Sweater, but I chose to eliminate the pearls.
Lucie has a 13” chest and is 16-1/2” from back of her head to the beginning of her tail. She fit this perfectly in the Small size.
I think I'm going to be making more dog sweaters in the future because they're so easy - and so cute!!
