I knit this dog sweater for my aunt's little dog. Apparently the dog hasn't taken too kindly to the cold weather in the Northwest. They recently moved from Sacremento, CA. I don't own a dog, but I have the next best thing, my partner Eddy's Pound Puppy, Buster, who was more than happy to be my model. He wants to know where HIS sweater is!!! It is a mock cable pattern that I got from Fiber Trends. I highly recommend their patterns. Look for their website www.fibertrends.com. I am now working on a cable scarf for myself (for a change !) I'm almost done with it. Thanks for all the great feedback and inspiration.
