Synopses & Reviews
From the authors of the beloved Knit Your Own Dog series comes an ingenious kit that contains everything you need to make your own knitted pooch, including yarn, needles, stuffing, and accessories in one handy box.
The knitted dog is an ideal pet. There's no feeding, barking, walking, or vet bills, and it will live forever! It's no wonder, then, that when Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne introduced the concept of the knitted dog with their first book, Knit Your Own Dog, it was an instant success. They've since followed up with a line of Knit Your Own books, including Knit Your Own Dog: The Second Litter; Knit Your Own Cat; and Knit Your Own Zoo.
Now, with the Knit Your Own Dog Kits, all the materials you need to create your favorite breed are available in one convenient box. Each kit includes a booklet with the unique knitting pattern, plus a brief description of the characteristics of the breed and what makes it so special. Also included is an ample amount of the high-quality yarn to knit the dog, a pair of US 2 (2 3/4 mm) knitting needles, stuffing, pipe cleaners to help make limbs movable and to help the dog stand up, and a sewing needle to finish off your dog. These dogs are surprisingly easy to make--with a few evenings of work, you can have a covetable loyal companion.
Knit Your Own Dog Kits for beagle, golden retriever, and dachshund are perfect gifts for knitters, dog lovers, or dog-loving knitters!
