Finally! It's posted - I named this dog sweater "Snuggie" because all I want to do is snuggle any dog wearing it. The superwash wool is a smooth, tight knit with a lot of shaping that hugs your dogs curves. My pups love it! Here are all the details:
Size: Fits my maltese who is 7 lbs. In a bulkier yarn or doubled yarn it would fit a larger dog. Going up a size in the needles and making the sweater a tad longer, it fit my 11 lb poodle with ease with no changes to yarn.
Yarn: Moda Dea Superwash Wool in main color and contrasting color (or any worsted weight yarn)
Needles: U.S. 6 circulars and U.S. 5 dpns
Time it takes to knit: About 5 hours.
I have posted the pattern on 4shared in pdf format so it's easy to print and follow. If you have any questions please email me. Also, if you download the pattern, I would appreciate a comment so I can see the finished result!! Have fun!
1/15/2009: Errata - I just got an email stating there is a typo on Row 25. It states P15, inc 1 st, p5, inc 1 st, P15 (35 sts total) and instead it should be P14 sts on each side.
Please let me know if you see further errors...
