This sweater has a really simple (and seamless) construction that results in a well fitting and adorable dog sweater! It is knit top down, in the round with chest increases in the front. The armholes are the best part! They are first knit flat in scrap yarn and then later picked up and finished for a totally seamless sleeve, knit in pattern with the rest of the stripes. The tummy shaping is knit flat and then the bottom ribbing is picked up and knit in the round again to finish it off. Instructions are included for an optional harness hole on the back!
