Knit Your Own Dog: The Second Litter
Twenty-Five More Pedigree Pooches
Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne
From the authors of the beloved and best-selling Knit Your Own Dog and Knit Your Own Cat comes a new litter of dogs to knit. With easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for twenty-five more distinct pooches, it’s an irresistible guide to knitting the dog you’ve always wanted.
The knitted dog is an ideal pet—there’s no feeding, barking, walking, or vet bills, and he’ll live forever! Since the publication of Knit Your Own Dog, dog lovers have been howling for even more breeds to knit. This long-awaited second volume includes easy-to-follow patterns for 25 all-new breeds, including: Beagle, Bernese Mountain Dog, Bichon Frise, Boxer, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Chihuahua, English Springer Spaniel, Golden Retriever, Greyhound, Irish Wolfhound, Pointer, Shih Tzu, Weimaraner, Yorkshire Terrier and many more!
The dogs are surprisingly easy to make—with a few evenings of work you can have a covetable companion for life. Scores of photographs show the finished dogs, as well as close-up shots of their detailed and adorable features. Authors Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne also include brief accounts of the characteristics of each breed and offer tips and advice on sewing up the dogs.
