Editorial Reviews

Dallas Morning News
Patterns are based on people clothes. There are dog biscuit recipes, flea remedies, and tributes to therapy and search-and-rescue dogs.
Knitter's Review
This is the best collection of dog knits I've seen.
Ultimate Knitting
Greyhounds with goosebumps shiver no more. Patterns range from basic to challenging with sizing information to customize the coat.
Knitting News
This is the most adorable book of dog sweaters that I have ever come across.
Cable Gram
Because pieces don't look like doll clothes, large dogs look just as good as the tiny ones in them.
Sarah Newman
Stylin pets will be sporting handmade knits.
St. Louis Dispatch
Claudia Kawczynski
A delightful book sure to inspire both dog-lovers and beginning or experienced knitters.

News Observer
A wardrobe of fun sweaters and throws for dogs.
—Marcy Smith
Library Journal
Knitters and pets seem to go together. This book, the first from a major publisher to provide a pattern wardrobe for our best friends, is sure to be popular in public libraries. All patterns have been written for four sizes (small, medium, large, and extra large) and will fit dogs from under ten lbs. to about 75 lbs. The volume is amply illustrated with pooches wearing sweaters, none so "cutsy" as to embarrass a four-legged friend. Swartz assumes a basic knowledge of knitting, and, aside from a generic pattern for a crocheted dog sweater, all the garments are knitted. Patterns include a Native American-inspired blanket sweater, a classic cabled Aran sweater, and an Icelandic pullover. Intermediate knitters will enjoy practicing such skills as Fair Isle and intarsia knitting on a small, quickly finished garment. Warmly recommended for public libraries.
