Cast on 60-80-100 sts with double pointed needle size 3 mm [US 2or3] and light grey.
Work in Rib for 8-10-12 cm [3 1/8”-4”-4 ¾”] (= Collar which will be folded double).
Change to small circular needle size 4 mm [US 6] (sock needle in size XS).
K 1 round at the same time inc. 16-32-54 sts evenly distributed = 76-112-154 sts.
Continue the pattern as follows:
Size XS: M.2, P2 , M.2, P3, M.3, M.2, M.1 (= mid back), M.2, M.3 and P3.
Size S: * M.2, P2 *, repeat from *-* 2 times, M.2, * M.3, M.2 *, repeat from *-* 2 times, M.1 (= mid back), * M.2, M.3 *, repeat from *-* 2 times.

At the same time when the piece measures 12-16-20 cm [4 ¾”-6 ¼”-8”] split the work for the forelegs as follows: Put 10-16-22 sts on a thread or a stitch holder (= underneath the stomach), bind off 1 P st, continue to work over the back piece and bind off the last st at the other side = 64-94-130 sts (= back piece).
Work back and forth over these sts for 6-8-10 cm [2 3/8”-3 1/8”-4”] (the piece measures 18-24-30 cm [7”-9½”-11 ¾”] in total).
Put sts on a stitch holder and put sts from the stitch holder underneath the stomach back on needle.
Cast on 1 new st each side of these sts = 12-18-24 sts.
Continue knitting the pattern back and forth with 1 P st each side. When worked 6-8-10 cm [2 3/8”-3 1/8”-4”] put all sts on needle = 76-112-154 sts.
When the piece measures 24-31-38 cm [9½”-12 ¼”-15”] bind off 12-20-28 sts mid underneath the stomach.
Now work the piece back and forth on needle – at the same time bind off each side on every other row: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2-3-4 time, 1 st 2-3-4 times, 2 st 2-3-4 times and 3 sts 1 time = 32-50-74 sts left. The piece measures approx. 30-39-48 cm [11 ¾”-15 ¼”-19”].

Assembly:
Put the remaining sts on a small circular needle size 3 mm [US 2or3] and pick up sts around the binding off edge to a total of approx 84-108-140 sts.
Work Rib for 2-3-4 cm [3/4”-1 1/8”-1½”], bind off loosely.
