Product details

No Cats were harmed in the making of this pattern but one was slightly ‘put out’.

This is the Knitting Pattern for a Dog Coat worked in pom pom yarn 'Jester' by Designer Yarns.
Knit from the 'Top' down, it has a ribbed belly so that it will adjust to fit even the greediest dog. (All you golden retrievers you know I'm talking about you!)

If you can't get hold of the Jester yarn you can work it in any DK weight yarn and attach pom poms later.
