Nothing is cuter than a dog in a sweater vest! This vest is knit in a super chunky yarn in a ribbing that gives a thick but snug fit. It also closes with large buttons and is finished with a wide collar making for one hip dog.
With only 33 rows it can be knitted in a jiffy. So what are you waiting for?

The vest is knit in a 1x1 ribbing for the ability to stretch to fit a wide range of chest measurements. If your dog is larger than 8 lbs (the sweater dimensions are listed on the pattern), the chest probably doesn’t need alteration but perhaps you’ll want to make the body of the sweater longer (remembering to insert a buttonhole every 9th row). The vest is also knit so that you don’t have to pull the sweater over your dog’s head. It can button up on the chest (or if your dogs are like mine and don’t mind sweaters being pulled over their head you can tack the opening closed but still have functional buttons for looks).
