This sweater is knit top down, in the round with a stranded colourwork and textured yoke.
Instructions for the optional leash hole are included after the first colourwork motif.
The armholes are first knit flat in scrap yarn, and are later picked up and finished for a totally seamless sleeve, with a matching textured stitch pattern to the rest of the sweater.
The placement of the armholes are after the second motif. Your dog’s unique arms may benefit from armhole placement above that motif. You will have to try it on your dog to be sure.
