Hi Janet, for those sweaters in the pic, I been following this:
How To Crochet a Dog Sweater - YouTube

^^^But what I learned from this pattern, make it a little bit bigger than what she instructed in the girth because I never can fit it over my chi's shoulders if I follow exactly to her instructions. Maybe measure the shoulder area too to see if you need more room because those sweaters I made are still a tiny bit tight in those areas when she lays down or when after 2 chains after you make the sleeve area, make it more than 2 chains to have room in that shoulder area too before you tighten it up to make the neck area. What I did the first time making a jumper with this pattern is use yarn that I don't really like and make a finished sweater and try it on Star. Then on the next jumper I would make adjustments to where it is still is tight or where is needed, even when she is laying down. Hope this helps!

Currently I working on this pattern, which is taking me forever because I keep undoing it to get the fitting more accurate because I'm always having trouble with the fitting from the collar to where the sleeve starts:

I think her directions of measuring is more accurate so far with the leg positions! I'm hoping this pattern wont irritate her armpits. I'm finishing the bottom half and then work on a hoodie part for the jumper.

They look great, you should get some glittery eyelash or sparkle yarn and make so for the holiday season
