When I got my little dachshund Otto I did not realise he would feel the cold. Even on a fairly mild morning he would be shivering away and thinking he would need to be carried rather than getting his delicate little toes anywhere near the ground. The solution - a lovely warm knitted coat. When I looked at the available patterns they all seemed to involve posting tiny little legs into little sleeve like holes which I knew would be a nightmare with such a wriggler so I designed this simple coat with a nice wide strap for under the tummy and straps to do up around the chest. Much easier than posting tiny wriggly paws into sleeve like holes. Otto Has tried his jacket on even though it is Summer and he seems to be quite happy with it. I have made it very bright and stripy but you could knit it plain or in your football team colours. It is a very adaptable pattern. The coat is lined with fleece fabric and has velcro fastenings for ease of getting off and on.
