Showing off a dog’s distinctive attitude is easy and stylish with this collection of 12 colorful and upbeat knitwear designs for medium to large dogs. Patterns for classy, special-occasion knits, warm coats and hats, and adorable everyday sweaters blend simple shapes and sumptuous yarn with high-energy colors to create sophisticated canine apparel. A photo gallery of the designs contains a profile for each of the “top dog” models—including Hugo, a firehouse Dalmatian and Rheinhard, a German–Setter rescue dog. A measuring chart for mid- to large-size breeds, knit-to-fit instructions, and a primer on basic stitches make this an all-in-one guide in a fun, portable format. Quick to knit and very functional, these are knits that any pooch would be happy to wear.
