Does your dachsie friend need a cozy layer? This
classic fair isle, turtle-neck sweater is sure to be a
knitterly reminder of your love and affection.
This sweater is knit top down, in the round to the
mid body, then worked flat. Finish it off by adding
ribbing to make afterthought sleeves.

Testers made adorable versions for Dachshunds, Terriers and Italian Greyhounds and more!
