I designed the original dog sweater for my Miniature Schnauzer, Schotzi.
So many people asked for the alterations for Tim and Lil (pictured below)
that their owner, Linda Fleisch,
made another sweater so we could post her instructions.

I used a 4 ply worsted weight yarn. To make this smaller or larger use the
same directions but use a smaller or larger hook. A smaller hook and sport weight
yarn will make a smaller sweater also. If one needs a longer sweater extra rows/rnds
can be added in rows 9-13 and/or rnds 2-7 and/or 16-17.
If the neck part looks like it might be too tight to add a couple of chains
to rnd 14.
