Easy Dog Sweaters

This dog sweater pattern is so easy and fast I have made 3 sweaters since Saturday.

#1 knit on 15 addi turbo circular with Homespun for Sherman--followed pattern fairly closely and results were a sweater that was very short, even for my toy sized dog

#2 knit on 17 needles with fabulous, almost my new favorite Rowan big knit in color=storm (black and white, what else) pattern adapted in the following ways:
many more rows added after initial row of ribbing
decreased using k2 together instead of PSSO (which I suck at)
added many rows after the leg holes
results=fabulous sweater that looks good on Monkey (see above) but could be longer.

#3 knit on 15 needles with some Lion Brand chunky acrylic--similar adaptations in pattern with the addition of a neck ruffle
results=ok looking sweater that is a little tight and a little short for Sissy

This sounds great! I'm so happy that you found a pattern that you can make work for you! Now I want to see photos!! You know that Shermie and Sissy love to be models!

Did you see the puppy shrug in the new Knitty?
