I am a proud mommy of a little Shih tzu, a Dachshund,and a Chihuahua, I wanted a quick item, to keep them all warm, for those potty trips outdoors , with out fighting with straps and putting little legs in sweater holes.. because when they gotta go, they gotta go!!! So I decided to create them all a Poncho to wear.
They love them, and so do I...problem solved. ;o)
The Small fits my Chihuahua, the medium size fits the Shih tzu and Dachshund, the large would fit a Schnauzer nicely.
Remember you can change needle and yarn size to accommodate your pet, go bigger for a larger size, and go smaller for a tiny size.
This pattern takes less than one skein of the Loops and thread yarn, I actually got two Ponchos out of one skein. But you could use any 4ply worsted weight yarn (Red heart Super saver would work great)
Body of Poncho is worked flat and seamed, neck ribbing is worked in the round on dpn's or two circular method.
Don't forget the Cat, I have made two of these for the neighbors kitty's, our feline friends get cold too!
150 yards of Worsted weight
