This pattern was designed for my vizsla (hungarian pointer) but would work great for any pointers, greyhounds, or other large breed dogs (40-65 pounds). There are two versions of the pattern: One for the small neck/head breeds, and a more “regular” version.

The sweater is worked flat, top-down. There is a little bit of seaming because this adds stucture to the garment.

The collar is designed to cover the neck. Length can be adjusted as desired.

I use this coat underneat a Chillydog winter coat on very cold days, as my dogs have no insulating undercoat hair.

I added wide stripes and a large intarsia maple leaf on one of my dog’s coat. The pattern download contains a file for the maple leaf chart.

Note that Zara was not fully grown on the pictures from last winter, but her sweater is now perfect for her full-grown size.

A french version of the pattern will be published soon.

I hope you and your dog love it!
