This pattern was updated August 2016: I redid my original greyhound pattern (photo shown in orange and black) to be much easier to follow, and with a ribbed neck instead of basketweave (photo of new one is green and yellow)
I'm including BOTH patterns with this sale so you can choose whichever you prefer! I have also update the size this fits, as it accommodates a range more than a single size.
This dog sweater was originally custom designed for a size request to fit a greyhound with these measurements: 31" girth/barrel, 24" length (from shoulders to rump), 15" neck circumference (average size, measuring 14" near top and 17" at base). I recommend this pattern for dogs with a small neck and large girth with these approximate measurements: 14-16" neck (measured halfway up neck), 20-24" length, and 26-30" circumference around barrel (chest). The length of the sweater is designed to be a little shorter than the length of the dog.
The neck can easily be made longer if desired for a higher turtleneck and can be either rolled down as shown or left up for a snug fit.
Pattern includes detailed written instruction and several pictures and diagrams.
The pattern is my own design, the ever popular basketweave pattern (see my other listings) with a contrasting color border.
This listing is for the crochet PATTERN, not the finished product. I do also offer the sweater for purchase, please see current listings for what's available or make a custom request.
Materials required: Red Heart Super Saver, 1 skein main color plus small amount contrasting color Size I-9 crochet hook 3 buttons
I have not made this item yet but the instructions look really good. I am so happy to be able to crochet my greyhound such a lovely sweater! Thank you for offering this pattern especially for the unique figure of the lovely greyhound dog!

The first time around the chest is missing some
Stitches in the directions, that part is a little confusing. Other than that the pattern is a pretty easy follow.
