Tiny Doggy Sweater
I made this little sweater for Roxy (our 3-1/2lb. Yorkie). I used the system I learned in the book "Kids to Grownups Seamless Sweaters". It's top-down raglan. I just had to fiddle with the placement of the armholes. I also found out the neck needed to be longer before the shoulders started, so I went back and picked up stitches around the neck edge and added another 3/4" upward. The yarn is Bernat Baby Jacquards. On such a small item, the pattern repeat works out very cute. I also put a photo of the tiny little needles I used for this small circular item. My hands are hurting from the small slippery needles.
