Lion Brand« Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

6 hdc + 5 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) 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.

Urban Granny Dog Sweater Reviewed by Lisa Ingram on 2012-12-30 ****
I took this pattern and adapted it a bit, as I wanted to use worsted weight yarn I had used in another project and wanted a thinner sweater anyway. I thought it was great to be able to customize the size; for example since my dog is part dachshund she has a longer body that is typical for a dog her size, so I was able to make the top part sized Large, but the little square underneath a size Medium. I also changed the neck a bit since I knew she would be wearing a collar and leash when she would wear this and didn't want all that bulk there. Definitely an easy pattern.
