Simple Sweater for Boe

I finally finished this sweater - and just in time for my upcoming class!



Started: February 16, 2014
Finished: March 25, 2014
Yarn: Cascade 220, superwash in 801 green
Needles: size 6 (4.0mm) and 5 (3.75mm) circs

This project sat unfinished for a while in my project pile. I think I had so many other knits that this one kept falling to the bottom of my To Do List. The sad part is that I just needed to pick up the stitches and finish the ribbing neck, legs and back. But I finally finished and good thing too... my dog sweater class is next week! Now I can use this to model the medium size sweater!



Similar to the sweater I knit for Rosie this one was knit with what I'm starting to call Suzy's Simple Dog Sweater. It's a combination of 5 or so dog sweater patterns into one super-duper easy sweater that fits like a glove. Of course I had to do some math to get it right for Boe's awkward body (we joke that he is Bichon Fris mixed with Bulldog).  

Overall a fun and easy knit. The yarn is simple enough - this Cascade 220 superwash is a workhorse. I do like that I went down a needle size on this one (I didn't for Rosie's). I think it sits a little nicer on his rump area (I tried to get a photo of the length and so you could see the nice shaping in the back):

I do apologize for the blurry pictures - it is VERY difficult to take photos of him. He is ALWAYS moving!
Except here...
