I’m back in the Carolina Mountains, this time with my BF and snow-loving poodle, Iva.
It snowed several inches last night, so we are glad to have plenty of oatmeal, egg nog, and hot chocolate to welcome us after a romp in the snow. And Iva is glad to have her new sweater.
This is based on the Side Button Greyhound Sweater pattern, which I chose because I thought Iva’s body type was similar to a greyhound’s deep chest and slim waist.
Since Iva is a bit smaller than a greyhound, I modified the pattern in order to make a small (not listed in the sizes). I can post detailed notes later, but basically I reduced each measurement or stitch count based on the numerical differences between the sizes listed.
I used some khaki green Plymouth Encore yarn I found at a thrift store.
It worked out quite well, although you can see the sweater could be a bit longer.
You can also see that the sweater has a tendency to ride up in front, but mostly only after some serious romping, like this:
