DS-SH-13 Hounds Tooth Dog Sweater

This redo of the classic is a neo-hounds tooth. My updated style filled with graphic teeth has vintage buttons up one side, waffle ribbing on the chest and a buttoned chest band. It also has a ribbed neck and bottom ribbing. Come up with your own color ways, classic or trendy.

I have always loved houndstooth. When knitting my sample design I started with an unexpected color combo. I decided on an assymetrical closing up one side. Just put your dog's leg in the one leg hole, wrap it around and button snugly around the chest and up the neck. As with all my designs, this one starts at the top and is knit in one piece, no seams.

A matching owner's scarf is available here:
