Knit a striped dog sweater for a small dog from three colors of DK weight yarn, then finish it with simple crochet stitches. Sweater can also be knit with just one color of yarn. Finished size of sweater is 16" around the chest unstretched, 20" stretched. Sweater conforms to the dog's shape because of the nature of the rib stitch used. Sweater is knit flat in an allover k3,p1 rib stitch with a k1,p1 ribbed collar. Sweater has two holes for the front legs, then crocheted together along the chest. A single crochet border is added to finish the front leg openings and also the outside edge. Easy to Make. Elegant to Wear. NEWS FLASH!
