Perfect Fit Dog &Cat Sweater -Pat Generatr TopDown

by JL
January 2011
any size yarn
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Pattern available in English, Spanish, Russian, Greek. (I am seeking volunteer translators, please let me know if interested!)

This very simple design is worked top-down, seamless, in the round. Stitches are then picked up for bottom border and sleeves.

Any size can be made from XXXS to XXXL or any other! Simple calculations are given to determine the exact perfect pattern for your size dog. Any yarn and any gauge can be used. A perfect blank palette for creativity-add lace, intarsia, cables, etc. And adjusts perfectly for our “odd shaped” friends, such as bulldogs and pugs.

NOTE: For XXS dogs, a user suggested you may want to increase every rnd for the neck increases. & for XXL dogs, see a user’s comments here!

Please post photos if you can!:)

This pattern has also been used to create a nice sweater for cats, lambs, bunnies, and guinea pigs… and I would be very intrigued to see it on other animals as well!!:)

A very special thank you to todanai for Greek translation and eponamama for Russian translation and Nadabrovitchka for Spanish translation!

~~~~~~A Little Story about Luna the Model Dog and All These Other Seemingly Irrelevant Dog Photos~~~~~

I work for an NGO in Kathmandu, Nepal devoted to offering medical care to injured stray street dogs (

In 2010, 3 month old Luna was hit by a car that resulted in one amputated leg and injuries on all other three legs. While nursing her back to health, Luna and I fell in love and I realized I could not leave her to fend for herself back on the streets, so I brought her back to the United States with me.

Luna is one of the more fortunate dogs, most of dogs remain in Kathmandu living out their life on the street, with very little care other than what is offered by NGOs. Street Dog Care Organization is run solely on donations from caring individuals, if you have a special place in your heart for our canine friends, please consider visiting Street Dog Care’s website for more information and perhaps offering a kind donation. Thank you and with much love from Kathmandu!:) (The other seemingly irrelevant dog photos are of just a few of the dogs cared for by Street Dog Care.)
