Do you have an extra large pup and can’t find anything that will fit him/her on the Internet? That was me and my dogs! I wanted to design something special for my big boys and add some fun doggie elements to their sweaters! It’s worked up flat in two pieces from bottom to top in worsted yarn and seamed together after blocking. It doesn’t feel that long to complete the entire piece because you will move from one color pattern to another which is super fun! Hope you enjoy the entire process and have a special piece made just for your pup by you!

Extra Large Dogs ONLY (100 lbs+).

Dog model Dakota is 110 lbs.
