Well, i've finished it. Sort of. That is, i thought i'd finished it. But when i tried it on Bug, his little belly stuck out from under the ribbing... so i took another look at the pattern & realized that i'd inadvertently left off 20 rows of the body by counting the repetitions of the wrong cable! Sooooooooooooo... here is the finished project, until i get up the guts to try to add an extension onto the bottom.
