Now this is where your measurement of the distance between arms comes in for arm holes…..
FOLD SWEATER IN HALF BEING VERY CAREFUL TO MATCH ENDS. TAKE THE DISTANCE YOU GOT BETWEEN LEGS AND DIVIDE BY 2.
NOW THE TRICKY PART…
FROM 3 STITCHES IN..MARK THE DIVIDED DISTANCE…MARK WITH YARN OR SAFETY PIN…
NOW YOU NEED TO MARK 10 DC..OR 5 V STITCHS..
MARK FOR OTHER END OF ARM HOLE.
MUST DO THIS ON BOTH SIDES OF SWEATER EVENLY. .BECAUSE WHEN YOU STITCH IT UP YOU WANT ARM HOLES EVENLY SPACED FOR COMFORT.
NOW ..that you have them marked..
Continue with row 20..
You start out the same as other rows BUT when you get to the marker you dc in that V stitch. .
From there you will chain * 12 ..the start back with the V stitch in the other marker. This is one arm hole..
Continue V stitch till you reach other marker.
Do the same as from *.. continue till end..
NOTE ROWS 19..20..21 ARE THE SAME.. COUNT…
Now this is where we decrease by 4 stitches per row..
Row 22..is 60
Row 23..is 54
Row 24..is 50
Row 25..is 48
Rows 25..26..27..28.. are all 48 stitches. .
Now you are almost done. .
Tie off and work in all ends…
Now you can sew up sweater…
From row 15 for smaller dog and row 18 for larger dog. This is counted from chain row.
Stitch up by whatever means you prefer.
I do a shell stitch around neck n bottom for girl and just do a single crochet for male to finish off..
Now we add the elastic at the collar end..
2 rows from the end ..not counting the trim…
Work through f
The stitches 1/4 in elastic to fit comfortably comfortably around neck ..
