Irma sent me the pattern for the knitted Cargo Pocket Dog Coat. I found a picture of the finished coat. I typed out the instructions for those of you who want to knit the coat for your little one.
Anyone that has the pattern can proof read it again. I think it's all correct.
Here is a picture of the finished coat:
