Worked in the round on double pointed needles in size XS and on circular needle in the other sizes. Worked from the neck down.
Cast on 40-55-70-85 sts on double pointed needles/circular needle size 4.5 mm with Symphony. Work rib = K 3/P 2 for 5-8-11-14 cm (= neck). Switch to 1 thread Fabel + 1 thread Baby Merino – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Continue rib for 2-4-6-8 cm. On next round, inc all 3 K sts to 4 K sts = 48-66-84-102 sts. When piece measures 6-9-12-15 cm, cast off for front legs as follows: Slip the first 10-16-22-28 sts on a stitch holder – there should be 4 K sts at the beg and end of holder = 38-50-62-74 sts remain on needle. Continue with over piece.

Work rib back and forth on needle with 2 sts in GARTER ST in each side - see explanation above! AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS, inc 1 st in each side - Read INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc on every row from RS 5-11-11-17 more times = 50-74-86-110 sts. Piece now measures approx. 12-19-22-31 cm. On next row from RS, cast off for 1 button hole in each side as follows: Cast off the middle 2 K sts in the outermost K-section in each side and cast on 2 new sts over the cast off sts on next row. Repeat button hole cast off when piece measures 16-24-28-37 cm. When piece measures 19-26-32-38 cm, cast off at beg of every row: 2 sts 7-9-11-14 times in each side = 22-38-42-54 sts. Then cast off the remaining sts. Piece measures approx. 30-42-53-64 cm incl the neck.

Slip sts from stitch holder back on needle size 4.5 mm. Knit in addition up 2 sts in each side at the back of the 2 sts in garter st worked on over piece = 14-20-26-32 sts. Work rib with 1 thread Fabel + 1 thread Baby Merino back and forth on needle with 2 sts in garter st in each side. Cast off when under piece measures 13-17-20-23 cm.

Crochet with hook size 4 mm and Symphony around the entire over piece and under piece as follows: 1 dc, * 3 ch, skip approx. 1 cm, 1 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc.

Sew 4 buttons on under piece, 2 in each side to match the button holes on over piece.
TIP: Try the vest on the dog. If it is too wide, only sew 2 buttons in the middle of under piece and button both sides of over piece with the same button.
PS: The neck is folded double when worn.
