With all the frigid weather we've been having lately I wanted to make a dog sweater for a friend at work. She has a West Highland Terrier and "Hamish" really doesn't like the cold.
Yarn: Smart DK Super wash by SandnesGarn 50g balls
( I didn't use a whole ball or red and a small amount of grey and black)
Needles: 4mm and 3mm for I-cord edge.
Modifications: The pattern called for a zipper in the front neck opening (not with dog fur I say).
So I did garter stitch bands with buttons. Much more practical if I do say so, and I also made a knitted band with a buttonhole for the belly strap. Then I finished off the edge with an I-cord edging instead of a crocheted one. (similar to the Tulip Sweater)
