DS-SH-02 Soho Cables Dog Sweater

Classic and chic. Cables everywhere, a ribbed chest, double-buttoned chest band and button closure at ribbed neck make the sweater easy to put on and take off.

My PBGV Clinger needed a sweater with good chest coverage as she had short legs. To make shaping easier I started at the neck. I came up with an unconventional design using a circular needle. I purposely did not look at other dog sweater patterns, I wanted to create something original. I started knitting, increased, knit some more, put stitches on holders, knit the rest, flipped the sweater around and put the held stitches together, added stitches for a chest band. The result was a custom-fit dog sweater in one piece with no seams. I then designed variations using cables and other textures. Because we lived in Soho, NYC I named this style Soho Cables.
