Cables & Bits is a doggie-size shrug suitable for both girl and boy dogs. Its easy construction requires no shaping and would be a great introduction to cables for those who have not yet mastered them! I have included three sizes here, plus simple, Knit to Fit directions which require only a few simple math calculations! Knit up in an affordable, washable yarn that comes in a nice range of colors, you’ll soon find yourself (and your doggie!) saying, “I want more Cables & Bits! Cables & Bits & Bits & Bits!”
