Tapping into her day job as a fashion designer, Sole Salvo designed the Lucky Dog Sweater for lucky dogs indeed! Fitting dogs of most shapes and sizes, the Lucky Dog Sweater Pattern uses 2 x 2 rib details to contour around the body for a smart and comfortable fit and also to lend a little drama to the collar. Knit in the round, from tail to head, this pattern is customizable with well-placed tips for shortening, lengthening, and widening. Plus, girls and boys get different shaping in the belly area, so everyone’s comfy! Knit up in beautiful and durable Linen Quill Worsted, nothing beats knitting for someone you love!
NOTE: We originally knit up (and photographed) our Lucky Dog Sweaters in Linen Quill Worsted, but since we no longer carry that yarn, we now recommend our equally beautiful alpaca-highland wool Yonder!
