The photos are adorable, the patterns are great, and even if your dog hates sweaters, there are knitted accessories for you to make, too. My dog's a big fan of the tugging toy. Even though I design most of my own knits, using patterns from this book has given me a base for customization (using different yarn or pattern stitches, etc). It's hard for me to decide which pattern to knit next!
Well worth the money -- this book would also be a great holiday present for your favorite dog-loving knitter!
It is nice to see a book that's written for something besides "purse pooches." I have a Labrador Retriever (at least 3/4 of her is) so it's nice to have some designs for her.
Some of the designs are uber-Paris Hilton, which I guess is appealing to some people so I won't be too obvious about my complete and total disgust for them. In fact, there are only about 5 designs I'd actually use, and some of those I'd have to modify to suit my needs.
The yarn she suggests is REALLY expensive, and I'm sorry, but my dog is not worth a $120 sweater that she would probably eat in ten minutes. I mean, I love her, but acrylic will do just fine because it never rains here. And frankly, I don't think she could tell the difference between scratchy virgin wool and cashmere (or the kettle-dyed merino she suggests at like, $13 a ball). But this is a common feature of many knitting books - since they get the yarn free, I suppose they soon forget that college students like me don't have oodles to spend on "haute couture" for their dog. (Seriously, though.)
Some of the designs are embarassing, like the saddle-bags (people actually need a PATTERN to make those?), the felted collar/wristband set (uh...), a sweater with matching (human) armwarmers (yeah, just, no), and dog legwarmers.Read more ›
I like the fact that different type yarns are used. Who wants to knit with boring old worsted all the time.
If you have creativity in your soul, this book is for you. If you want your dog to stand out because of a creative, classy sweater than go for this book.
And to top if off, the models are great! :)

lots of excellent patterns that are very easy; you do need to use the internet to cross-reference the yarn list in the back of the book to see what weight of yarn to use.Published 8 months ago by Kindle Customer

Darling book for a Christmas present for a friend who has a Yorkie and is a big knitter!Published 10 months ago by Karen D. Schmitz
The patterns are so pretty. The only shortfall is that some of the patterns are written in "code". I prefer patterns that write the instructions out. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Virginia V. Simpson
