"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

I really want to knit this for my puppy but I am confused by the Beard instructions. I am knitting for an XS dog if I CO 3 sts then increase to 5 sts in the 1st row and then 7 sts in the 3rd row it would mean that the beard is only 6 rows but it seems more than that in the picture. How long should the beard be?

This would be a difficult pattern to make with all the missing information, like which yarns to use and how much of them and without this information you can't tell which yarn is designated A, B etc.

The type of yarn is in the short write-up above the pattern, and I agree, it should be in the body of the pattern where people can see it. And which yarn is which is given right at the top of the pattern White is yarn A. Red is yarn B. Fur yarn is yarn C.
