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.

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.

Skal det være knappehull til knappene så plagget kan åpnes og kneppes? Eller er alle delene strikket/heklet sammen, og knappene bare til pynt?

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 08:10:

Hei Karoline, Knappene kneppes i lm-buene som beskrevet helt på slutten av oppskriften. God fornøyelse!

Hello. I love this pattern - it's exactly what I've been looking for, however, I need a crochet pattern as I don't knit. Is there a crochet version of it available, even something similar? Many thanks.

DROPS Design 20.02.2017 kl. 10:10:

Dear Mrs Dee, this pattern is only knitted version, and there is not a similar crochet pattern. What about looking at our videos to start learning knitting?

Bonjour, Je realise se tricot en taille M sur 19 mailles montées. J'ai suivi les augmentations : tout les deux rangs 2x 2m puis 5 fois 1m mais une fois les augmentations terminée j'arrive a 28 mailles et non 37 comme indiqué sur les explications. Pouvez vous m'éclairer ? Merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 16.12.2016 kl. 13:39:

Bonjour Julia, on doit augmenter tous les 2 rangs de chaque côté (= à la fin de chaque rang, sur l'endroit comme sur l'envers), on va ainsi augmenter: 2 x 2 m de chaque côté (= +8 m au total), puis 5x 1 m (= + 10 m au total), on aura ainsi: 19+8+10=37 m. Bon tricot!

Rossana 15.12.2016 - 22:34:

Bonsoir, je n'ai pas compris comment relever ls maille pur l'harnais, pouvez vous m'expliquer? je releves les mailles en dessous la bordure au crochet mais quand je tricote le fil passe au dessus de la bordure....

DROPS Design 16.12.2016 kl. 09:30:

Bonjour Rossana, relevez bien les mailles sur l'endroit sous la bordure au crochet (= dans les mailles tricotées et pas dans les mailles crochetées), et tricotez au point de riz sur ces 7-9-10 m relevées, en veillant bien à ce que la bordure au crochet soit toujours visible sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

In all my 50+ years of knitting, I have never read such a difficult pattern!. The increases are impossible to understand. I've started with 11 sts, if I add 2 sts at the end of two rows, that equals 4 new sts. I then increase 1 st at the end of two rows, that equals 2 new sts for a total of 6 new sts. Therefore, 11 original + 6 increases = 18! Could you not write this pattern by rows? Very disappointed to say the least.

DROPS Design 03.11.2016 kl. 09:20:

Dear Susan, you have to inc on each side every other row (= at the beg of each row on each side): 2 sts 2 times (x 2 sides = 8 new sts) + 1 st 2 times (x 2 sides = 4 new sts) = 11+ 8+ 4= 23 sts. Happy knitting!

Louise Lariviere 21.01.2016 - 19:09:

Je ne vois pas comment monter de mailles????

DROPS Design 22.01.2016 kl. 10:28:

Bonjour Mme Larivière, vous trouverez le nombre de mailles à monter pour chaque taille sous explications, paragraphe "Réalisation". Bon tricot!

Donde le doy para hacerlo favorito?

DROPS Design 14.01.2016 kl. 09:47:

Hola Juana, en cada patrón hay un dibujo de un corazón sobre la foto del patrón. Debes dar en el símbolo para que te lo guarde como favorito

Annika 21.11.2015 - 17:41:

Hej! Jag ser inte i stickbeskrivningen hur många maskor man ska lägga upp för de resp storlekarna när man börjar sticka. Vad är det jag missar?

DROPS Design 23.11.2015 kl. 08:47:

Hej. Du lägger upp 11-15-19 m beroende på vilken storlek du stickar (11=XS, 15=S, 19=M). Lycka till!
