This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

This pattern was born out of need for a custom-fit sweater for my 3-legged love. I never expected that 10 years later, over 1600 beautiful jumpers would be made! I hope this pattern continues to bring perfect-fitting sweaters to your quadruped friends for many more years to come. Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful support over the last 10 years.

This very simple design is worked top-down, seamless, in the round. Stitches are then picked up for bottom border and sleeves.

Any size can be made from XXXS to XXXL or any other! Simple calculations are given to determine the exact perfect pattern for your size dog. Any yarn and any gauge can be used. A perfect blank palette for creativity-add lace, intarsia, cables, etc. And it adjusts perfectly for our “odd shaped” friends, such as bulldogs and pugs.

NOTE: For XXS dogs, Ravelry users have suggested you may want to increase every rnd for the neck increases. & for XXL dogs, see a user’s comments here!

Please post photos if you can!:)
This pattern has also been used to create a nice sweater for cats, lambs, bunnies, and guinea pigs…

Pattern available in English, Spanish, Russian, French, Greek. (I am seeking volunteer translators, please let me know if you can help!)

A very special thank you to todanai for Greek translation and eponamama for Russian translation and Nadabrovitchka for Spanish translation and nadeige for French translation!

~~~~~~A Little Story about Luna the Model Dog and All These Other Seemingly Irrelevant Dog Photos~~~~~

In 2010, 3 month old Luna, a street dog in Kathmandu,Nepal, was hit by a car that resulted in one amputated leg and injuries on all other three legs. While nursing her back to health, Luna and I fell in love and I realized I could not leave her to fend for herself on the streets, so I brought her back to the United States.

Luna is one of the more fortunate dogs, most of dogs remain in Kathmandu living out their life on the street, with very little care other than what is offered by NGOs. Street Dog Care Organization is run solely on donations from caring individuals, if you have a special place in your heart for our canine friends, please consider visiting Street Dog Care’s website for more information and perhaps offering a kind donation. Thank you and with much love from Kathmandu!:)
