My lovely Pug Frank is getting old and appears to have lost quite a lot of his coat and in the cooler weather feels a little chilly! This little sweater is knitted with worsted weight yarn in the round from the top down with a ribbed trim around the edges .

My gauge was 4.25 stitches to the inch. The original sweater is based on Frank’s measurements of: collar 16” (40.5cm), collar to within an inch of tail base 15” (38cm) and around his rib cage 23” (58cm). All these measurements were fairly relaxed and the tape measure wasn’t pulled tightly.

XS - Buddha size - Collar 13” Chest 20-21”
S - Angel & Phoebe size - Collar 14” Chest 20-21”
M - Frank size - Collar 16” Chest 22-23””
L - Pearl size - Collar 17.5” Chest 25-26”
XL - Louie & Bella size - Collar 17” Chest 27-28”

Shih tzu (honorary ‘Pugs’ for the KAL)
XXXS - Sammie size - Collar 13” Chest 14-15”
XXS - Giddy size - Collar 12” Chest 16”

I“m looking forward to seeing some cosily dressed Pugs : ) You may share this pattern and make finished items to sell but please don’t take the pattern to sell as your own.

KAL Starts the 18th of August 2013 here which will be a great test/learning experience for all of us.

Should you find a problem with the pattern or a suggestion please drop me a line : )
