Wendy shows knitters a quick and easy way to whip up a personalized sweater for your dog using two knitted rectangles. Using nothing more than your dog’s measurements and a gauge swatch, you’ll do a little math and then start casting on. This class is a perfect stash-buster — simply use yarns in a similar gauge to make a fun, striped motif. The sweater can be customized for any size dog by adjusting the number of cast on stitches and the quantity of yarn.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Materials:
  • Worsted-weight superwash yarn such as Ewe Ewe Wooly. Wendy uses 2 skeins for a small dog (approximately 200 yards). Adjust yardage depending on size of dog.
  • Double-pointed needles in size to match desired gauge (Wendy uses size US 6)
  • Straight or circular needles in size to match desired gauge (Wendy uses size US 6)
  • Tape measure
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stitch markers
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Cute dog sweater. She demonstrated the stitches really quickly - so I'd call this an intermediate class. Hope to do this some day when I pick up the basics.
