Knitting tension: 12 sts x 20 rows in moss sts = 10 x 10 cm

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

Knit as follows: 5-7-8 cm of red, 1.5-2-3 cm of pink, 4-5-6-cm of orange mix, 1.5-2-3 cm of lilac mix, 3-5-6 cm of pink, 1.5-2-3 cm of red, 3-5-6 cm 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 with red.
nit in moss 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. Then cast off the mid 5-7-9 sts for the neck. Split 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 cast off.

Right side: Knit as left side but reverse.

Crochet edge: Crochet with lilac mix and hook size 7 mm along the whole edge of the coat- begin at the top of one side of the neck as follows: 1 dc in the first st, 2 ch, *skip approx 1.5 cm, 1 dc 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 7mm with lilac mix on the left edge of the coat beg. approx 6-8-10 cm 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 – try the coat on the dog for exact length (the garment stretch a little in when used so don’t make it too long), cast off.
Sew 1-2-2 buttons onto the harness and 1-2-2 buttons onto the neck edge. Button up using the ch loops.
