NOTES:

Cardigan is worked in one piece from lower edge to neck.
Legs are worked separately, then joined to Cardigan.
Buttons are buttoned through the fabric of the Cardigan, no buttonholes are worked. This allows a degree of adjustability, so that the Cardigan will fit a range of sizes.
Note that the various breeds are shaped quite differently! Our sample sweater fit a French Bulldog, but you may need to make adjustments to the pattern or to the button placement to fit your dogs particular shape.
