I used a tape measure to measure my puppy. This sweater won't fit all puppies because mine is so small. But you can make one for yours by measuring like I did.
My puppy's measurements are:
7" around the neck
91/2" around the body
From the lower neck to about 3" from the tail is 6
Row 1. 1sc in 6sts, ch1 & turn.
Row 2. 1sc in the BLO in 6sts, ch1 & turn.
Rows 3-40. repeat row 2
Join the 2 ends together and wk 1slst across in 6sts, ch1.
Row 42. 1sc in 42sts, you can join or use a stitch marker. I used a stitch marker because I do not like the line you can get when joining.
Row 44. wk 1hdc in each st (including ch18)-42sts.
Row 45. 1hdc in 42sts
Repeat row 45 until the body of the sweater reaches about 2 or 3inches from the tail.
house on Sunday and this poor little girl had a complete melt down...
