Bertie's Crochet Jumper

Notes on a dog jumper…  I’ve always wanted to make up a crocheted jumper for Bertie to wear and I finally got around to it.  Once I had something that fit him well and that he was happy to wear, I knew I wanted to make more! 

When using this pattern, please be aware that there is no choice of sizes, no tutorials or any of the usual extras and help that I would provide in one of my full patterns.  Instead, these are just the basic, rough and untested notes that I made for my own use which I've tidied up to share as requested!  But hopefully this will provide a starting point for you to begin your own experiments if you are looking to keep your dog cozy and warm.
