Women-and men-of all ages are learning how to knit. Knitters, especially the new ones, enjoy easy-to-make projects that can be completed in a short time. Pets are equally popular in our modern society. Pet owners who often indulge their animals with special treats and accessories will like these easy and quick-to-make designer-quality dog sweaters. These projects can be completed in a weekend, an evening, while watching television, or during an airport layover. They are simple enough to be a first knitting project for a beginning knitter. Design variations and embellishments add the personal touch, and can make each design a more challenging project for an experience knitter. Additionally, the small size of the projects in this book makes them ideal to tuck into a purse or tote bag, so that they can be worked on at odd moments during the day when the knitter finds a few free moments.
What dog lover wouldn’t be delighted with a magnificent hand-knitted sweater for Fido--and what knitter wouldn’t be proud to create it? Dog sweaters can be made with leftovers from larger projects, and completed in the same time it takes to knit a hat, scarf, or mittens. There are eight basic patterns with variations, plus instructions for sizing up or down, three patterns for hard-to-fit breeds (Pugs, Chihuahuas, Dachshunds), four accessories (a snood, a hat, a kerchief, and a collar), and three home projects (a bed, a blanket, and a toy). Photos of pooches wearing the finished sweaters, plus start-to-finish instructions (including how to measure the dog) ensure a stylish look and a perfect fit.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced knitter, knitting for toy dogs, has something for all. With small fun knitting projects, that only requires minimal amounts of yarn. The satisfaction of accomplishing your project in a relatively short amount of time is a great feeling. Whilst having your pet in stylish and warm apparel, and saving money on expensive outfits and toys.
Knitting in hip, doggie style means that you can dress your pooch with pizazz, and Knitting for Dogs, illustrated with full color, will enchant knitters of all levels and dog-owners who want bespoke clothes and accessories for their canines. You'll find designs here for every kind of dog, from sequined sweaters for your toy dog princess to a handsome sport coat with racing stripes for your L or XL big boy. But why stop there when you can knit a hat with Fair Isle trim or fingerless Aran gloves to match your pet's jaunty sweater? And because accessories make the dog, there are patterns for everything from a cat-shaped squeaky toy to a walk-in-the-park shoulder bag for carrying keys, doggie treats, and the all-important plastic bags. With foolproof instructions on how to properly measure a dog so that the project comes out just right, Knitting for Dogs will provide hours of entertainment for you and turn even the average pooch into the envy of the dog-run set. So whether you're a beginner or expert knitter, on the cutting edge of fashion or all about what's practical, you'll find something here to please both you and your canine companion.
