Dogs in Knits by Judith L. Swartz
paperback, 96 pages
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
