Do you have a favorite dog breed? Many people do. My mother-in-law loves all dogs, but she definitely has a thing for cute pugs. So does my daughter; she’s never had a pug, but she loves watching Puppy Dog Pals on the Disney Junior channel.
If there’s a particular dog breed you love enough to want to knit a project depicting that breed, there’s a brand new knitting pattern book I think you’re going to be really excited about. It’s called Dogs on Sweaters: Knitting Patterns for 18 Different Breeds. The book includes charts for knitting all 18 of these different breeds — and you get multiple patterns for some of the breeds, because there are projects in different sizes for both children and adults.
Some of the projects in the book are customizable; you can choose the silhouette you want to knit, choose the dog breed you want to put on the project and make several other additional design choices (like the style of ribbing you want to use, the color combination and whether or not you want to include names, initials or a slogan on your project).
One of the wonderful things about this book is that it includes designs suitable for men, boys and children. The guys and the “big kids” are sometimes neglected in craft pattern books — but here you’ll find choices suitable for almost every dog lover on your knitting gift list.
Baby projects are also well represented in the book. If you knit baby shower gifts, I think you’ll definitely want to take a look at Dogs on Sweaters. And there are projects suitable for ladies, too.
