Here is our biggest furbaby, Coco, in her fancy new fur coat. I knitted her this furry coat in Lion Brand Wool-Ease and Fun Fur from a free pattern on the Lion Brand website. I had to made adjustments to the pattern which was written with small to medium dogs in mind, and I realized when I had it sewn together that the underpanel should have been attached in reverse - with the wide end at the chest - to fit Coco's svelte stream-lined shape. There is no belly on this girl, so I tightened up the bottom of the underpanel with single crochet. One problem with this design is that it rides back and down as Coco moves. I am thinking of doing something to the neckline to keep it from stretching and sliding down her chest.
Most dog coat patterns are for small dogs. I would love to see more patterns written for large dogs - our boxer cannot tolerate cold temperatures and she needs warm coats!
