I have finished another dog coat! I didn't use a pattern, just made this one up myself, so I'm really happy with how it came out. I did it as a favor for my MIL (she's giving it as a gift), so I didn't have the dog to test it with. Its for a daschund, but its too small for my Boston Terrier, yet long enough, so I'm hoping it will fit. I asked for pictures when its received and will post them if I get them. Its kindof hard to tell from the picture with no dog, but the head would go out the right :)

Thanks everyone! Crochetgoddess, I just made a granny square to fit, then did a small flap and attached two corners to make the neck, then bordered it, and then attached another smaller flap to use as the belly strap. Oh and I used two strands of ww. Hope that helps! I would love to see it if you make one :)

Great coat...and your baby is adorable (in your av). I have a Boston, too. She's on my profile page.
