Jan. 2019 NOTICE: This pattern was previously available for free on my blog. I have taken down the blog and re-released an improved version of the pattern for sale.

The new pattern has been edited to address a number of issues in the original pattern (formatting, clarity, better charts, etc.) In addition, I am now happy to offer pattern support for anyone who purchases the pattern.

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.
