How to Knit a Dog Sweater

All the sweaters above are made from the same pattern. It is very easy! If you can knit a scarf, you can knit this dog sweater. Harry's size is as follows: Body-Length is 30cm (12"), Neck-Circumference is 24cm (10"), Chest-Circumference is 38cm (15"). If your dog is a little smaller, use thinner yarn with thinner needles. If your dog is a little bigger, use thicker yarn with thicker needles.

Materials: Red Heart Classic 60g (2oz)
5mm (US8) needles for stockinettes
4mm (US6) needles for ribs

Tension: 17 sts & 23 rows = 10cm (4")

Cast on 47 stiches for the Back.
Cast on 19 stiches for the Under-Panel.

Start knitting from the bottom.

To make the shape of the underpanel,
deacrease a stitch at the end of both sides
at 27th, 39th and 49th row.

If you do not know how to knit ribs,
just knit stockinettes or garters.

If you know how to change colours or
how to knit cables, do so.

Sew back to underpanel along side edges,
leaving the openings for legs.

Start sewing from the top of neck.

After sewing 14 rows,
leave 22 rows from underpanel and
16 rows from back to make the openings.

Then continue sewing the edges
until the bottom of the underpanel.

If your dog's chest or legs are wide,
make the openings larger.
