Cant imagine my Charlie Brown wearing a knitted coat ha ha!
Seriously though, don't think I have seen any patterns for bigger dogs.

If anyone finds one, I'd like to know about it too. I have a large Pointer/Lab mix I'd like to make a coat for, and a chihuahua/beagle mix. The little one is the one that really needs a coat or sweater, but I CAN'T LEAVE THE BIG ONE OUT. *lol* (he does get jealous if the little dog gets anything he doesn't)

You might find something here: http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/pets.php

If all else fails, you can custom-fit a sweater with this web site: http://www.thedietdiary.com/cgi-bin/chart_dog.pl

I hear you. Most of the online patterns are for cute little lap sitters. There's none for big dogs or Corgis with long hot dog bodies. I had to wing a pattern for my dog.

Same here....I ahve searched and seaqarched for a sweater for a lab but havent found anything! My guy is 12 years old and wears a coat, like a dog blanket, but it doesnt "hug" him which I think would be warmer.

Are boxer dogs about 30" around the chest? I don't know if "Patons: a dog's life" is still in print, but I used my copy to make the extra-large version of the Basic sweater. I used the Snow Ghost colorway from the now-discontinued Camoflauge line from Bernat. I still have this grays-and-black sweater. "Dog Sweaters to Knit and Crochet" from Leisure Arts also goes up to 30" around the chest on all ten patterns.

Go to desert rose designs. www.drdesigns.net It has a pattern where you can measure the dog. The neck might be a little thick for your dog, but you can make it shorter.

I just googled "knitting patterns large dog sweater" and came up with tons of links and possibilities.

I found a bunch of patterns for my brothers dog by googling "knitting patterns greyhound" and came with at least a dozen designed just for greyhounds.

Really...anytime I want a pattern, i just throw a bunch of descriptive words in order of importance into a search bar and always find way more than I can use.

Here's one that comes in 1X and is a quick knit on size 13 needles. It also has a 5 star rating! http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80933AD.html?r=1

Just measured Charlie, 34" chest! but he is bigger than average, weighs in at 5 stone.
