Man's best friend deserves to be spoiled with cozy clothes! How about this fun Dustland Dog Sweater by Stephen West.
Cover your canine companion in beautiful textured stitches with the Dustland Dog Sweater! This pattern is knit with DK weight yarn and lots of easy textured stitch patterns. Choose between nine sizes from petite pups to big breeds and enjoy the seamless construction starting at the neck and knitting toward the body. The pattern includes several sizing notes to help you customize your chosen size to perfectly fit your pup. The length of the yoke, body, and legs are very easy to customize by working more or fewer sections of the textured stitches. There is an optional harness hole in the pattern, so you can style the sweater on top of your dog’s harness. Increases along the back and short rows help lengthen the back of the sweater, resulting in a sweater fit that is equal parts cute and functional. Coordinate the Dustland Dog Sweater with the other Westknits Dustland designs like the Dustland Cardigan or Dustland Shawl!
