Pattern description from Stitch ‘n Bitch: “Designing your own dog sweater is much easier than following a printed pattern that doesn’t take Fido’s love handles into consideration. All you have to do is take a few measurements, knit up a couple of rectangles, slap on a turtleneck and cuffs, and voila!”

Size: One skein was plenty for a chubby Chihuahua; you’ll need to guesstimate the yardage needed for a larger dog

Skills: Cast on, knit, purl, knit in the round, pick up stitches, bind off, sew seam
