I'm really enjoying this book for making crochet dog sweaters.
Martha Elmore
Of course this is doable for an experienced knitter but it's unnecessary.
Shelley
The instructions are easy to follow and the photos are helpful also.

Pros: A great number of projects of various degrees of difficulty. I have completed 2 sweaters so far and they turned out pretty nice. Good variety of crochet and knitting projects. There are no costume projects which in my opinion is a plus. This is not a book for halloween, but all sweaters, blankets, etc. are wonderfully cute.
Cons: Sometimes the directions are not very clear. For example, they tell you to cut yarn, but don't explain how to secure it when working on the leg openings. There are no instructions on how to determine the size of your dog - S,M,L.

This book contains adorable patterns that are best for smaller dogs. For larger dogs, the patterns would require significant modification. My one complaint about the book is that the directions are poorly written and confusing. On the two patterns I've made so far, both sets of directions lacked clarity and I found that I had to make knitting decisions based on my best guess about what I was supposed to be doing. In some cases, my hunches guided me in the right direction; in other cases, ripping out sections and trying again was required. Since I am an experienced knitter, I have been able to muddle my way through the patterns I've tried so far, but had I been an inexperienced knitter, I would have been extremely frustrated with the directions.

I've made two of the knitted sweaters from this book and they both turned out great. The dogs who got them look just wonderful in the sweaters, too. The instructions were plenty clear enough for me, a barely intermediate knitter. I was able to complete both garments with no help except to look up a couple things in a basic knitting reference book. The price of the book is good for so many cute patterns. Any one of these sweaters or other projects, like the pillows, would make great gifts for the dog owners you know.

I was curious as to how the leashes and collars would work knitted and crocheted. Be aware that you must purchase a leash and collar to go inside of the knitted piece. Other than that, the sweaters are very cute and the instructions are easy for a beginner to use.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By M. Cheng on January 30, 2012
Format: Paperback
I received this book as a birthday gift. The projects are photographed in nice detail on very cute dogs. I immediately was drawn to the cabled roll collar sweater. I compared my dog's measurements to the dimensions of the sweater in order to choose the correct size. It was a very fun and quick knit. My dog looks handsome in it and we get compliments whenever he sports it.

My only complaint is that the written directions were a bit confusing regarding increases/decreases within the cable pattern. I am an experienced knitter and was able to use the photo to compare my progress. When doing the increases, keep in mind that there is a "p-k-p" between each "p-k6-p". For the leg decreases, the cable repeats are considered as only the "p-k6-p " part.

I'm planning to use another pattern but I haven't decided which one yet.

This book is full of cute, fun, practical designs. Our new doggy neighbor is panting for her new look! There are many choices, so there will be an entire wardrobe for varied weather conditions. Included are carriers too for little ones to keep close. Designs are easy to put on the dogs. Most projects are for smaller sized dogs.

I found all the patterns very easy to understand, and the ones I picked to knit went very quick. It was easy to determine what size my dog is, by using the chart.
