Such a pretty girl!

Miss Mollie is the proud owner of a brand spanking new sweater! She is even showing her Hawkeye pride!

Yarn: The gold is Cascade 220 and the black is some combination of Cascade 220 and Wool of the Andes. I was using leftovers that were unlabeled so I'm not sure
Needles: Denise Interchangeables size 7 (size 5 for ribbing) and DPNs in those two sizes for the sleeves.
Pattern: Esther Bozak's Original Custom-Fit Dog Sweater with alternate sleeve #2.
Verdict: I am quite pleased with how this turned out. I really liked the custom-fit pattern as Miss Mollie is rather oddly proportioned relative to standard dog clothes. If I were to do another, I think I would shorten the neck-to-underarm and put that length back after the sleeves. But I'm pretty sure that this resulted from my measuring, not the pattern or instructions.

Did anyone tell Miss Mollie that she should be very happy that she's the proud owner of a custom-knit sweater in her family's favorite team colors? I was expecting to see a big smile on her face...or at the very least, her ears in an upright and forward position!

The sweater looks like it's a very good fit.
