|This is my English Cream Long haired Dachshund. Mellow yellow for sure, lounging on the couch is not new to him.|
Lacy Capelet for your canine. Perfect for those crisp Fall days, or cool spring walks. Quick to work up with only 16 Rows total. Chest strap is adjustable and leaves plenty of room for collar and leash. Belly strap is also adjustable. Gussets are made in the shells to allow for shoulders and rib cage. This helps to keeps the capelet lying flat against the dogs sides and not stick away. Pattern size is adjusted by type of yarn and size of hook. Required are two 3/4” Shank back buttons which are attached in the crochet work. No sewing required! Regular worsted weight is used for the size medium measuring 13 1/2” Wide X 12” long. Caron Simply Soft is used for the small measuring 10 1/2” Wide X 9 1/2” Long. Worsted weight cotton is used for the Extra Small. According to my gauge swatch it should measure about 9” Wide X 7” long, however the extra small has not been tested yet. I am looking for someone to test the extra small size. Please message me if you would like to test the extra small size only. The measurements on the Capelets were folded flat, excluding the belly strap and the chest strap.
The medium will fit about a 17-25 pound dog. It fit my standard size dachshunds.
The small will fit in the 10 pound range. It fit my miniature dachshunds.
Like anybody else but me measures in the world in dachshunds,, lol..
