A little present for your little dog lover!
My friends Sarah and Robb are dog lovers like me. So when I found out they were going to have a baby, I thought a dog sweater would be the perfect gift. The dog on the sweater is Ella, their sweet but skittish girl who is black with a white spot on her chest. When Forrest was born, Ella sent out the birth announcements! Ella is knit separately and sewn on, to make it easy for you to personalize it without having to rework the sweater. Use a different color or texture yarn, and tweak the chart if you'd like to match your own dog (just be sure to match the dog gauge).
This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together. You may either work a regular shoulder or a buttoned shoulder, which will make it easier to pull the sweater over the child's head. The dog is worked separately from either written instructions or a chart, then sewn on. Knit with Vintage by Berroco. Fits child's sizes: 6-12mo (12-18mo, 18-24mo, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12).
Finished measurements: 2( 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38)" chest
