I have wanted to knit something for my labrador for awhile now, but was confused as to properly measure her and the adjust patterns. While this book does not have alot of different patterns, the patterns in here are totally open to creativity and adjustment. The best part of the book was the "how to" when it comes to dogs. My lab is not the full knitted sweater type, but she will use the coats. I had to laugh at the "pillbox" hat and have been threatening to make her the ensemble for next October. This book was definitely worth every penny to me.

Cover is adorable, but patterns are too advanced for the beginner. Unless you are an experienced knitter, this is not the book for you.

I received my knitting book. The instructions are difficult to understand. I make one of the sweaters and I was happy with the fit. I made the neck scarf. After finishing the scarf it is way too large. It fit my German Shepart and not my boxer. I followed the directions perfectly. I am going to make a new one and down size the number of stitches to reduce the size... I think this book is good, but beware of sizes.

My dog, a labrador, loves the sweaters I've made her, and doesn't want to take them off in the winter. I had used some old and inadequate patterns, eventually coming up with my own format for these out of frustration, but I'm not really satisfied with it. I've looked in vain for a selection of sweaters designed for larger dogs, rather than just up-sizing a sweater meant for a smaller dog. Because it is aimed at this "plus-size" market, Top Dog Knits is an above-average book of dog sweaters. Eaton proposes some shapes I'd never considered, opening some new possibilities. I'm especially anxious to try the turtleneck sweater (shown on a weimaraner, I believe) to see if the neck stays up as well as they show. Overall, though, I think owners of larger dogs will find this book very useful.

I knitted the one on the cover, but changed the color scheme to only two stripes, one near the top and one near the bottom. I guess I did a good job because my sister's puppy's vet wants to sell them. I told her no because I like to knit for fun, not for profit.
