DOG JUMPER

Knit Today Magazine - - Inspiring Colour -

To pro­duce this lovely stitch pat­tern for your doggy coat you just rib on RS rows and purl on WS rows, leav­ing it look­ing great on the re­verse too, where the neck is turned back. The jumper has lit­tle garter stitch leg holes so it is more of a tank top and is ideal for short legs that love to dig.
