Can a bib pattern be modified to fit a doggie?

The beginners bib pattern looks easy enough to me. Could I modify so that the strap goes around the doggies neck instead of a babys neck and just knit the bib itself to be longer… kind of like a cape. I had request to make a sweater for a small dog about 16 lbs… I looked at some doggies patterns and I don’t think I can do the more advanced stitches yet … for instance the armholes and neck etc… Any ideas how could accomplish making something to keep the doggie warm?

im not sure what you mean about the strap around the neck. but if you want it longer just add more rows. or double the pattern once it stops the strap and starts on the body.
