Oct. 2019 NOTICE:

This pattern was my very first knitting pattern and it has been through a number of re-writes and re-releases as I have learned and grown as a designer. I do not want to retire the pattern because people continue to knit it and appreciate it, but it is also not up to my current standards.

Thus, I have undertaken to rewrite the pattern and have it professionally tech edited. The new version will be available (with no cost change) in November 2019. If you have already purchased it, you will receive a notice on Ravelry to download the new version; all future purchases will receive the new version.

Thank you for your support, and enjoy!

This sweater is designed to look sleek with or without a harness! You knit the neck and shoulders first and bind off, so you have a separate, fitted dog cowl. Then you pick up the purl bumps several rows in on the inside edge of this cowl to knit the body, leaving holes for the legs and harness. When completed, the bottom edge of the cowl will then hide the harness hole if the dog isn’t wearing its harness.
