Knitting gauge: 12 sts x 20 rows in moss sts = 10 x 10 cm [4’’ x 4’’]

Seed sts:
1st row: *K1, P1*, repeat from *-*
2nd row: K over P and P over K, repeat the
2nd row.

Stripes: Work as follows:
5-7-8 cm [2’’-2 ¾”-3 1/8”] of red,
1.5-2-3 cm [½”-3/4”-1 1/8”] of pink,
4-5-6 cm [1½”-2”-2 3/8”] of orange mix,
1.5-2-3 cm [½”-3/4”-1 1/8”] of lilac mix,
3-5-6 cm [1 1/8”-2”-2 3/8”] of pink,
1.5-2-3 cm [½”-3/4”-1 1/8”] of red,
3-5-6 cm [1 1/8”-2”-2 3/8”] of lilac mix
and then orange mix until finish.

The piece is knitted from the bottom of the back and up towards the neck. Cast on 11-15-19 sts on needle size 7 mm [US 10 ½] with red. Work in seed sts and stripes – see above- until finish – at the same time cast on new sts each side on every other row (i.e. end of each row): 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2-3-5 times = 23-29-37 sts.
Continue until the piece measures 21-28-36 cm [8 ¼” – 11” – 14 ¼”].
Then bind off the mid 5-7-9 sts for the neck.
Divide the work and finish each side separately – all measures are done from here from now on.

Left side: = 9-11-14 sts. Cast off 1 sts towards the neck on every other row 2-2-4 times = 7-9-10 sts.
When the piece measures 9-10-12 cm [3½”-4”-4 ¾”] bind off.

Right side: Work as left side but reverse.

Crochet edge:
Crochet with lilac mix and hook size 7 mm [US K/10½] along the whole edge of the coat- begin at the top of one side of the neck as follows: 1 sc in the first st, 2 ch, *skip approx 1.5 cm [½”], 1 sc in the next st, 2 ch*, repeat from *-* and finish with a sl st at the beg. of round.

Harness underneath the stomach: Pick up 7-9-10 sts on needle size 7 mm [US 10 ½] with lilac mix on the left edge of the coat beg. approx 6-8-10 cm [2 3/8”-3 1/8”-4”] below the neck (Pick up in the knitted sts so the crochet edge lay at the top). Knit in Moss sts for approx 10-15-20 cm [4”-6”-8”] – try the coat on the dog for exact length (the garment stretch a little when used so don’t make it too long), bind off.
Sew 1-2-2 buttons onto the harness and 1-2-2 buttons onto the neck edge.
Button up using the ch spaces.
