As a quick note here, I'll mention how horrified my mother was when I explained that part of this pattern included cutting steeks. She told me that, "it was the worst idea ever" and predicted disaster for the sweater. Luckily, things turned out well, but I was very careful while working the steeks.
I used Classic Elite one-fifty, and ended up having a few balls of yarn leftover. I knew instantly what I was going to do with this yarn. Since last winter, I have been thinking about making a sweater for our family dog, Shadow to wear in cold weather - especially soon after he's had a haircut.
I know that now my dog and I have matching sweaters, that puts me in a certain category of crazy, but I really couldn't care less. This was a fun project, and I'm pleased with the results.
It was very easy to modify this pattern for his size - and I think it ended up fitting him quite well, although it is a little small in the neck region.-
