In addition to a pair of 5 mm knitting needles you will also need a 4.5 mm circular needle or set of four double-ended needles.

The coat is worked in stocking-stitch (knit one row, purl one row) apart from the collar, leg openings and back ribs.

The stripe pattern features five shades and is worked over a 32-row repeat.

As the chillier days approach, we are sure this coat will be a real winner with our four-legged friends everywhere.
