Description from book:

“Here is a comfortable, functional jacket to keep your dog warm on even the most chilly days. The dashing Houndstooth Pattern (an obvious choice for canines!) features bright contrasting colors sewn to two insulating layers of polar fleece.
Whether he’s chasing wild game or tennis balls, this easy-on, easy-off jacket will keep your favorite hunter cozy.

The Houndstooth Pattern looks impressive, but it is quite simple to knit. You will be working with only one color at a time. Really, there is little more to it than knitting stripes, alternating colors every two rows. The color patterning is achieved by slipping stitches every right side row to create the houndstooth check.“

This jacket is made up of one knit panel sewn onto a fleece jacket which snaps at the neck and the belly panel.
