quirkpodAugust 12, 2008

This pattern was very successful for using up small balls of various colors to make a striped dog coat. This one fits a Boston Terrier with a 15 inch neck and 22 inch chest. Make 16 inch chain. St st in 1st ch to form ring. Sc around 4 times. No need to join at ends of rounds. At row 5, (sc in sc, 2 sc in nx sc) around for one row of increases. Change colors at any time. SC arnd until 4 inches long. Lay work flat. Mark both outer corners. Sc acr, turn at mark, ch1, sc. Rep until 16" long or as long as you need it to cover the dog's back. Add a row of contrast trim if you want to, by making 2 sc in rear corner, sc arnd edges of coat, 2 sc in 2nd rearcorner. Also neck can be edged in contrast yarn. Make a seperate belly band 3" x 7". Attach 2" from neck using sewing thread and needle. Any q's, I'd be happy to hear from you. Email me to see photo.
