 Introducing the coziest canine couture: our Cable Knit Dog Sweater.

Designed with love and attention to detail, this adorable sweater combines style and functionality to keep your furry friend warm in the most fashionable way.

The classic cable knit pattern not only adds a touch of timeless charm but also provides extra insulation during chilly walks or cozy nights at home.

Knit with 6 mm (US 10) knitting needles and bulky/chunky/12-ply yarn, the dog sweater is a great pattern for any intermediate knitters.

The main body of the dog sweater is knit flat, then joined in the round to complete the neck.


Any Bulky/Chunky/12 Ply yarn that can be matched with 6mm (US 10)

  • Any Bulky/Chunky/12 Ply yarn.
  • I used Alize Lanagold Classic 100g/240m/262yds (Grey 651) for the dog sweater.
  • You need around...
  • Small - 100g (240m/262yds).
  • Medium - 150g (360m/393yds).
  • Large - 200g (480m/524yds).


6mm (US 10) circular knitting needles - use a 24" or 32" cable.
