Touch of Mink Dog Sweater

Lion Brand® Microspun - Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) with smaller needles and 2 strands of A held tog in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
13 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) with larger needles and 1 strand each of B and C held tog in Garter st (k all rows). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Touch of Mink Dog Sweater Reviewed by Jil Baird on 2008-12-27 *****
Wow - so much fun. We have a miniature schnauzer T.R. (Theodore Roosevelt). We live at the entrance to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora, North Dakota.

I had a great time knitting this little sweater. Took me only one evening. And, T.R. loves his sweater.!!!!!

Starting another one tonight. I'll post pictures later.
