Need for Tweed Dog Sweater

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

8 sts + 16 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in garter st (k every row).

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

BACK
Cast on 25 (31, 37, 43) sts. Work in garter st until piece measures 7 (12, 14, 16) in. [18 (30.5, 35.5, 40.5) cm] from beg, end with a WS row.

Dec Row (RS): K 1, k2tog, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k 1 – 23 (29, 35, 41) sts.
K 3 rows. Rep Dec Row every 4th row 4 (4, 5, 7) more times – 15 (21, 25, 27) sts.
Bind off.


UNDERPIECE
Cast on 11 (13, 15, 17) sts. Work in garter st until piece measures 4½ (7¼, 10¼, 10¾) in. [11.5 (18.5, 26, 27.5) cm] from beg, end with a WS row.

Dec Row (RS): K 1, k2tog, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k 1 – 9 (11, 13, 15) sts.

Need for Tweed Dog Sweater Reviewed by Melanie Haniph on 2014-04-01 *****
This was a fun and easy pattern to make for my dog - I had it finished in a day. She was in between sizes, so she can grow into the sweater a little bit. The great thing about the recommended yarn for this pattern is that it stretches, and is super easy to slip on and off the dog.
