Petey’s Machine Knit Dog Coat


Okay, this is the best I could do with pictures of Petey’s dog coat. He is staring at his bone cookie and would not look at me.  He is in constant motion and that is probably why this coat does not fit so good-hard to measure a moving object! Anyway, I found a site that will generate a pattern for you if you put in stitch and row gauge and measurements.  http://www.thedietdiary.com/cgi-bin/chart_dog.pl   I just bought a bulky yarn to try the pattern and see how it is made. Now I can go back and tweak the pattern and I will be able to get a better fit. The stomach part was just a rectangle. I redid it and decreased like the top but next time would have to do less stitches on belly side. Of course, I did a tension swatch and this is not washed yet but it will not shrink that much.
