It made a fun project for some left over yarn. Maybe I'll make a couple more. I'm thinking of a ribbed collar that is open at the front this time. The turtleneck was cute but DD said it was hard to get on.
Here's a really easy crochet dog sweater pattern. The hardest part is getting the dog to wear it. This is the best pattern I ever found. So simple and will fit those hot dog body Corgis.

Edit: Emmi uses a 9mm size M crochet hook. This is the Susan Bates Crystalite hook. I have these. The sizing is different after a size K. In a Boye and other hooks, this would be a 9mm size N. Susan Bates is the oddball. A Susan Bates N hook is a 10 mm, which I believe would be a P in standard hooks.
