Toby's Coat Kit
Kate Davies and Sandra Manson have joined forces
to release this pattern for Tobys coat, which Sandra designed and
knitted for her dog Toby to keep him warm in the shop.
A Wolf in Sheeps Clothing (Tobys coat) uses all nine shades of Shetland Supreme 2ply Jumper Weight and includes the essential pattern features of the Rams and Yowes by Kate Davies.
This coat is made from the tail upwards, casting on stitches for the belly and using contrast yarn to create and 'afterthought' front leg openings to be made later. The body is worked back and forth in stocking stitch. The neck is shaped by decreasing, and a ribbed edging is added all around the sides
From Neck to Tail: 38cm (15in)
Edge to Edge across belly: 46cm (18in)
You will also need:
3mm (UK11/us 2-3) Knitting Needles (Circular needles may be requires for body and tail due to number of stitches)
3mm (UK 11/US 2-3) DPN's
Waste Yarn (a smooth 4ply yarn in a contrasting colour works best)
