Pattern Notes:
This sweater is knit top down, in the round with a colorful rib trim and stranded colourwork 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 trim to the rest of the sweater.

The lower body features a third motif before the tummy shaping, this motif may not fit in the shortest lengths. The shaping is customizable for your dog’s unique shape.
