Good Evening! Just call me the dog sweater lady!! For the past 2 days I have been working on a new dog sweater for Mia. I wanted to knit up an item with the skein of hand-dyed yarn I just made and thought that a dog sweater would be perfect.
Here are the details:
Pattern: Chevron Dog Sweater (click on the link for the free pattern for a small dog)
Book: Mia and Maddie Designs
Author: Sarah Gattis
Main Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool
Main Color: Hand Dyed
Needles: 16" U.S. 5 circular and set of four U.S. 5 double pointed needles
Skeins: Less than 1 skein
Notes: Gauge isn't listed but is 8 sts and 16 rows = 2 inch square and the finished product was designed to fit my Maltese. She is 12 inches from base of neck to beginning of tail and her chest measurement is 13 inches. This is a great pattern with 2 chevron cables going down the sides of the back. The neck is knit in ribbing and so is the back cast off edge and leg cuffs. Simple sweater to knit since the chevron cable is an easy 4 row repeat. No seaming needed. The sweater is knit from the neck down and the legs are picked up in the round. If you would like the sweater to be machine washable, choose a different yarn that Paton's Classic Wool because it will felt in the washing machine.
