 Learn to Knit the Perfectly Fitting Dog Sweater!Learn to knit a Custom Dog Sweater class at the Raging Wool Shop
Have you ever knitted a dog sweater that simply does not fit your furbaby correctly?

Maybe he or she wets it a little or trips over it sometimes? Maybe your furbaby is a little longer, shorter, or wider than the average doggie sweater size.

In this class, you will knit a sweater from your dog's measurements in any yarn of your choosing. You will need to make a gauge, in the pattern of your choosing, so it will fit. We have lots of dog sweater patterns to choose from.You will need actual measurements from your dog - here's how to do it!

A) Around the neck (just collar-level, or midway up the neck, is good).
B) Around the biggest part of the chest.
C) Across the side of the upper front leg, at its widest point (just at or below shoulder/underarm area is good). Alternately, you can measure the leg's circumference, instead of its width, and use half the circumference as the 'width' for measurement c.
D) Along the back of the front leg, from the underarm to the elbow. Or you could measure from the center back (the dog's spine) down the dog's leg to the elbow. The corresponding measurement on the sweater, when measuring for length of the sleeve, will be from its center back to the bottom edge of the sleeve.
E) Down the front, from where you measured the neck to the underarm of the front leg.
F) Along the front & underside, from where you measured on the neck to the end of sternum/rib cage.
G) Along the neck & back, from where you took the neck measurement to the base of the tail. This measurement will be most accurate if taken with the dog in a sitting position.
