Knitting tension: 19 sts x 25 rows in stocking sts with 1 thread of each quality = 10 x 10 cm.


Coat: Knit the coat round from neck and down.
Cast on 48-64-80 sts on double pointed needles size 4 mm with 1 thread of Fabel + 1 thread of Alpaca. Knit in Rib = K2/P2 for 4-6-8 cm. Then P 1 round (used for pick up sts for the hood). Knit another round of Rib as before and on the next round inc. 1 st in every other P part from 2 P sts to 3 P sts = 54-72-90 sts. Continue with Rib until the piece measures 6-10-14 cm and then inc. in the remaining P parts from 2 P sts to 3 P sts = 60-80-100 sts. Continue with Rib = K2 /P 3. When the piece measures 8-12-16 cm split the piece for the forelegs as follows: Cast off 2 K sts, put the next 13-18-23 sts on a thread or a stitch holder (= mid underneath the stomach), cast off 2 K sts and knit the remaining 43-58-73 sts as before. Continue with Rib over these sts (= the back piece) for 5-8-10 cm from the split, and then put these sts on a thread or a stitch holder. Put the remaining 13-18-23 sts underneath the stomach back on needle and knit Rib for 5-8-10 cm. Then put all sts back on needle – at the same time cast on 2 new sts each side in between the stomach and back piece = 60-80-100 sts. Continue the Rib as before. When the piece measures 19-27-34 cm cast off 9-10-13 sts mid underneath the stomach. Then complete the work knitting back and forth on needle – at the same time cast off each side on every other row: 2 sts 2 times, 1 st 2-5-7 times, 2 sts 1 time and 3 sts 1 time. Cast off remaining 29-42-55 sts. The piece measures approx. 24-34-44 cm.

Leg: Pick up 36-52-64 sts with 1 thread of Fabel on double pointed needles size 3 mm around one of the openings of the leg. Knit Rib = K 2/ P 2 for 3-5-7 cm, cast off with K over K and P over P. Repeat around the other leg.

Hood: Put the neck inside the coat at the P round knitted earlier. Hold the coat so that the P round points away from you. Then pick up sts in the round with Fabel on a small circular needle size 3mm – do not pick up sts in 6-10-14 sts mid underneath the stomach, but pick up in the remaining sts = = 42-54-66 sts. P 1 row back – at the same time inc. evenly distributed to 70-90-110 sts (i.e. knit 1 sts, inc. in the next 2 sts). Knit in stocking sts back and forth with 3 garter sts each side until the hood measures 12-16-20 cm. For a nice result knit the hood tog. at the top instead of casting off, but if this is to difficult cast off and sew tog. with grafting sts. Crochet edge: Crochet with Puddel and hook size 6 mm around the opening of the hood, at the bottom of the legs and around the opening of the coat at the back.
Crochet as follows: 1 dc in the first st, * 1 ch, skip 1 cm, 1 dc in the next st*, repeat from *-*.
