I DO NOT UNDERSTAND LEG OPENINGS DIRECTIONS AT ALL. VERY CONFUSING. RIGHT NOW i RATE IT A 2. TO BE CLOSE TO FINISHING AND NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO.

my cats got into a fight with some stray dogs and got hurt pretty bad but they survived. It took a while for the scars to heal I I had to make them a coat to prevent them from licking their ointment. It kept slipping off and I never thought of knitting or crotcheting this. Thank you so much.

This would be perfect for my little guy in the cold weather.

I attempted to make this adorable coat, but when I reached the leg openings, it got confusing and the distance between the front and back paws is certainly not enough - one to two and a half inches? The leg openings are not big enough either. And where do I add another ball of yarn? Is the back knitted separately? Thank you for your help.

Is the initial cast on row (Larger needles, 40 rows) considered the neckband? I'm jsut past the joining row and want to make sure I'm measuring from the right point. Do I measure from the joining row or from the start of the pattern?

I made this for a friends fur baby and put sleeves on it for his front legs to help with his arthritis. As I have no clue how to design garments, for people much less fur babies, if anyone out there has a design on how to add sleeves for the hind legs I would sure like to know how. Thank you.
