How to knit a dog coat in DROPS 102-43
In this DROPS video we show you how to put stitch to a stitch holder, how to split the work for the forelegs, how to decrease and how to cast on (we do not knit after the charts and we have a different stitch numbers then it says in the pattern). We have already knitted the rib(neck) and started on stocking stitch. You must read the pattern to be able to follow this video properly. You’ll find the pattern by clicking on the picture below.

My question is how to continue in the established cable pattern when knitting from the reverse. Since this is done on a circular needle (and you are seeing the cabling as you knit), once the split for the forelegs begins, what is the best way to knit from the inside/backside of the pattern?
DROPS Design 23.01.2017 - 11:24:Dear Carolyn Lee, make sure that the cables will be always worked from a RS row when dividing piece, then remember to read diagrams from WS from the left towards the right. Happy knitting!

Re taking the correct measurements of the dog. BACK LENGTH-Do you measure from the neck to the tail - from the neck to the hip - or from shoulder to hip? It does not specify in the pattern. For the CHEST WIDTH - do you measure all the way around the dog or just from one side to the other, beginning and ending where? Again, it does not specify in the pattern and I am making 3 of these for a friend\'s dogs and want to get the measurements correct. Thank you for your help! :))))\r\nShawn
DROPS Design 21.11.2016 - 11:03:Dear Mrs May, the measurements are the finished measurements of the sweater for each size. When working, measure from cast on edge unless otherwise stated. Happy knitting!
