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.
