Furry Dog Sweater

Lion Brand® Fun Fur® - Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

14 sts + 18 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with one strand each MC and CC held tog on larger needles.
18 sts + 24 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st with one strand CC on smaller needles 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.

Furry Dog Sweater Reviewed by Raquel on 2014-01-29 *****
Perfect for a little dog. Quick and easy knit. Fun because the pattern is flexible and the possibilities nearly endless for the use with festive yarns.

Mods: I extended coat both at the tail end and at the collar with short rows.
