This pattern is available here:
This sweater is knit top down, in the round with a stranded colourwork and striped yoke. Instructions for the optional leash hole are included before 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 matching stripes and trim to the rest of the sweater.
The lower body features a slipped stitch motif before the tummy shaping. The shaping is customizable for your dog’s unique shape, and is finished with the same ribbing as the collar.
