Good Knitting! ♥
The pattern was easy to follow, including using short rows for increasing the chest area. The openings for the leash and buttonholes are easy to do.
I appreciate this pattern a great deal. There are a number of my neighbors who have little dogs. I, myself, no longer have dogs, but I still love them. Our climate is very warm, but there are still chilly winter days. This pattern will allow me to make up some little sweaters for my pup friends. The bigger fur babies get scarves.
Pattern is well-written and easy to follow. You can fit the sweater as you knit it for a perfect result.
Comes together quick. Easy to follow and adapt when needed. Fits dachshund well and that’s not easy to find!
I was unsure about the pattern but I needed to make something quick for my 12 year old short hair dog. My baby, I love her. She gets cold very easy. I am very happy with this sweater. Next time I make this I know I need to start the belly wrap part sooner but it covers the important parts and because I measured my girl before starting it turned out very well. I also love that this sweater doesn’t chafe under her front arms and accommodates for chest and shoulder with a very simple design. I added colorful buttons to the sweater but I made it from tan/brown yarn so it is fun to see the pop of color along her side. You could easily change areas of the pattern to better fit your pup and it was nice to be able to try it on her as I went. I look forward to making this again and for future patterns from this designer.
