On this page you will find photos of some of my earlier work to illustrate types of fancy yarn, stitch patterns and colour schemes which may help you design your 'bespoke' coat.
These coats have all been sold and the yarns may no longer be available but I may be able to make something similar to fit your dog. Just quote the number of the coat you like on your bespokeorder form.
not always symmetrical on left/right side of coat. Totally beyond my control.
note difference on chest piece
note how pattern changes as coat gets wider
colours fade more gradually than on most self patterning yarns.
Aran yarn, black with copper/peacock thread
colour distribution fairly even
very similar to fleck
yarn with a metallic thread/sparkle
another self patterning yarn
gives slightly textured finish
Some of the heavier textured stitches may not be suitable for small coats or thick yarns. Please ask.
Ribbed patterns like 212, 161, 155, 156, 70 388 and 296 are good for small dogs and puppies as they give a snug fit which will 'grow' with the dog.

bright basketweave stripes with lines
Good depth of texture for small coats
