I made this during my breaks at work. I would sit in the kennel with Toby (a beagle) and crochet. I even tried it on him. My work mate thought that was funny. The best part is it fit him and a pug down the way. So doggie tested, Lee approved. (I work grave yard shift at a Pet Hotel)
This sweater also features something I have never done called. Long single crochet. It is what gives the shirt the texture that it has. hope you guys like. I am working on a Valentines Day Doggie Dress tonight and ill show that when i'm done.

I love it! I have a hard time doing anything in the round. I have a similar pattern and I ended up making it into a t-shirt style for my chis because the back went at a weird angle lol!
