You'll have 3 separate sections of knitting on the needle (7sts--56sts--7sts) each with its own strand of yarn attached. You're going to work all 3 at the same time with its own end of yarn. After you've knit like this for x many inches, you'll knit across with one end of yarn, casting on over the bound off sts and you'll be back knitting only one large section of the sweater.
Thank you so so much for your expertise and words of encouragement.

Help needed
I am making a dog sweater also and I am at the end of the leg openings. For the joining row, my pattern says:

Pat across 5. Turn. Cast on 6 std. Turn. Pat across 55 std. Turn. Cast on 6. Turn. Pat to end of row. 77 stitches.

I am working from 3 sets of needles. I don't understand the turn and cast on. Why can't I just use one needle, cast on as I go for both legs, incorporating all three sections onto one set of needles? Am I missing something?

Welcome to KH. Can you give us a link to your pattern (allowed after your first post) or its name and where you found it? How many needles are you working with? I am assuming that std means sts.

Turning before casting on lets you do a knitted or cable cast on, turning again puts you back to knitting across the next set of stitches in the same row/round.
