The wiener-dog body poses a number of challenges for handknitters—just ask any dachshund owner who’s watched her dog walk right out of a sweater. Wurstwärmer is designed specifically for dachshunds. Short rows add extra material to accommodate their barrel chests; a long, ribbed turtleneck gently hugs the neck and allows for a range of neck and chest shapes and sizes; a long body covers the whole belly, and more short rows curve the sweater over the rump. Short, wide-set triangular sleeves stay on even the wiggliest pup.
SIZING: XS (S, M, L, XL), to fit chest circumference of 11-13 (14-16, 17-19, 20-21, 22-23) inches.
