Buster’s Cozy Chunky Cable Sweater
I designed this sweater knowing that the green and the chunky cable would look fantastic on Buster. Mark off the pattern rows as you complete them. Knitting in the round makes the cable easier, as you are looking at the right side of the work, so the pattern is a pleasure to knit.

Knitter’s sewing needle
27 sts and 26 rows over central cable patt to a 4 in. (10 cm) square using size 8 (5 mm) needles.
This sweater is knitted for the most part in the round on a circular needle, and the pattern assumes that the rs is the inside of the knitting.
Starting at the neck edge and with size 7 (4.5 mm) circular needle, cast on 105 sts. Making sure that the work is not twisted, place marker and join the round.
Round 1: [k3, p2] to end.
This round sets rib patt. Cont in patt until rib measures 9 in. (23 cm) from cast on edge.
The inside of the tube of knitting is k3, p2 rib and will be the rs of the neck rib when the neck is rolled down, so now turn the work inside out and work the neck inc.
Next round (inc round): [p3, k1, M1, k1] to end. (126 sts)
Next round: [p3, k3] to end.
The last row sets new rib patt. Cont in patt until rib measures 10¼ in. (26 cm) from cast on edge.
Change to size 8 (5 mm) circular needle. Divide sts to form back sts, first leg sts, chest sts, and second leg sts as folls:
Round 1: k6, p3, [k9, p3] 5 times, k6 (75 sts for back), place marker, [k3, p3] twice, k3 (15 sts for first leg), place marker, [p3, k3] 3 times, p3 (21 sts for chest), place marker, [k3, p3] twice, k3 (15 sts for second leg).
Round 2 (inc round): k1, M1, k5, p3, [k9, p3] 5 times, k5, M1, k1 across back sts (77 sts for back), slm, rib as set across leg and chest sts, slm.
Round 3 (cable round): k7, p3, [k3, C6F, p3] 5 times, k7 across back sts, slm, rib as set across leg and chest sts, slm.
Round 4: k7, p3, [k9, p3] 5 times, k7 across back sts, slm, rib as set across leg and chest sts, slm.
Round 5: k7, p3, [k9, p3] 5 times, k7 across back sts, slm, rib as set across leg and chest sts, slm.
Round 6 (inc round): k1, M1, k6, p3, [k9, p3] 5 times, k6, M1, k1 across back sts (79 sts for back), slm, rib as set across leg and chest sts, slm.
Round 7 (cable round): k8, p3, [C6B, k3, p3] 5 times, k8 across back sts, slm, rib as set across leg and chest sts, slm.
Round 8: k8, p3, [k9, p3] 5 times, k8 across back sts, slm, rib as set across leg and chest sts, slm.
These 8 rounds set patt. Cont in patt, inc on every round 2 and 6 until there are 89 sts on back sts and 140 sts in total. (89 sts for back, 15 sts for first leg, 21 sts for chest, 15 sts for second leg)
Cont without shaping until work measures 13¾ in. (35 cm) from cast on edge. At this stage you can adjust length to suit your dog.
Make leg holes
Next round: work back sts in patt, rib across 15 first leg sts then put them onto a stitch holder, rib across 21 chest sts, rib across 15 second leg sts then put them onto a stitch holder.
Next round: work back sts in patt, cast on 15 sts for first leg, rib across 21 chest sts, cast on 15 sts for second leg, making sure the markers are in place again.
Cont in the round in patt as set until work measures 8 in. (20 cm) from leg holes.
Shape under chest
Next round (dec round): work back sts in patt, rib across first leg sts to 2 sts before marker, k2tog (14 sts for first leg), slm, rib across 21 chest sts, slm, k2tog, rib across rem leg sts (14 sts for second leg).
Cont to dec as set, altering the dec worked (either k2tog or p2tog) to suit patt, until all 15 sts of each leg are eliminated. On last dec round, remove markers.
Cont without decreasing until work measures 11 in. (28 cm) from leg holes, finishing with patt round 7.
Next round: work back sts in patt as set for round 8, rib across 21 chest sts then put them onto a stitch holder.
Work back sts, working back and forth on the circular needle.
Row 1 (rs): k13, p3, [k9, p3] 5 times, k13.
Row 2: p13, k3, [p9, k3] 5 times, p13.
Row 3 (cable row): k13, p3, [k3, C6F, p3] 5 times, k13.
Row 4: p13, k3, [p9, k3] 5 times, p13.
Row 5: k13, p3, [k9, p3] 5 times, k13.
Row 6: p13, k3, [p9, k3] 5 times, p13.
Row 7 (cable row): k13, p3, [C6B, k3, p3] 5 times, k13.
Row 8: p13, k3, [p9, k3] 5 times, p13.
These 8 rows set cable patt with st st borders.
Dec on every row 1 and 5 of cable patt rep by working k2tog, 3 sts in from each edge, then working rem sts of st st border until 71 sts remain and work measures 21¼ in. (54 cm) from bottom of neck rib along center back of sweater.
With size 7 (4.5 mm) circular needle, k2, k2tog, [p3, k3] 10 times, p3, k2tog, k2, pick up 27 sts along the right side back panel edge, [k3, p3] 3 times, k3 across chest sts on stitch holder, pick up 27 sts along the left side back panel edge to complete the round.
Place marker and commence working in the round.
Next round: [k3, p3] to end.
Rep this round until rib measures 1½ in. (4 cm), then bind off loosely in patt. It is important that you don’t bind off too tightly, as this edge needs to stretch over the dog’s chest when pulling the sweater on and off.
Leg hole border
Working with the sweater rs out and using size 6 (4 mm) dpns, on one leg hole pick up 21 sts across bound off leg hole sts, then rib the 15 sts from the holder. Divide the sts between 4 dpns (9 sts on each needle).
Round 1: k3, place marker, [p3, k3] to end.
Work in rib as set for 14 rounds.
Bind off loosely in patt.
Work second leg hole border to match.
Weave in all loose ends.
