The patterns are easy-to-follow for both new and veteran knitters. It should take only a few evenings to create a covetable companion for life. And yet each pattern is extremely detailed and includes all of the distinguishing features of each breed, from the startling blue eyes of the Siberian Husky and the long, woolly curls of the Old English Sheepdog to the lolling tongue of the German Shepherd.

Beautiful color photographs of the finished dogs, as well as detail shots, both inspire and instruct. Knit Your Own Dog is the perfect book for knitters and devoted dog lovers.

It was fun knitting the patterns in the book.

I want me an afghan hound! Or maybe an old English sheepdog. Some of the dogs in the book look rather unfinished, and the looping etc. could have turned out more realistically with fuzzier wool, but a lot of the patterns are very clever. Wouldn't take much to make up a komondor pattern from the other types included! Not all abbreviations are included in the glossary. As a new knitter, I was baffled by "co" and "tf".
