Pattern Notes:
The construction of this sweater is top down, in the round with chest increases made using M1L/R increases. The armholes are knit onto scrap yarn and then the sleeves are later picked up and knit in the round. The tummy shaping is done with simple decreases, there is also an optional harness hole. The stranded colourwork in this design is really fun, highlighting some of our furry friends favourite things, including bones, hearts for love and of course, trees!

Tutorials on stranded colourwork, creating the harness hole, picking up stitches, jogless stripes, tummy shaping, the stretchy bind off and a full walk through of creating the sleeves are all included with the pattern.

Alternate instructions are included for a shorter armhole to collar ratio for dogs with shorter torsos and longer bodies!
