Seamless Knits for Posh Pups has the most adorable knit sweaters for your pup! The instructions are clear and easy to understand and include directions for making adjustments to properly fit your pet. Each of the patterns are super cute and would look great on a small or large dog. I love that the designs are named after the dogs that model them. My favorite pattern is Tiffany since it's essentially a little black dress for a dog! If you love to dress up your furry friends, this is the book for you!
Este es uno de los libros más adorables que ha caído en mis manos en los últimos tiempos....
Sweaters y abrigos tejidos para la mascota favorita: el perro!
De manera clara y con decenas de sugerencias, la autora nos lleva de la mano tomando en cuenta el tamaño de nuestra mascota, si su torso es largo como un perro salchicha o bien de cuello ancho como un bulldog o de patas largas y delgadas....
Todo en el libro está cubierto pues se parte de una tabla básica donde se muestran tres tallas con las medidas estándar como circunferencia de cuello, pecho, largo de torso, circunferencia de extremidades y peso de la mascota.
A partir de las medidas que uno tome personalmente se podrá adaptar con sencillez la prenda ideal para nuestro compañero perruno.
El libro incluye 14 proyectos, desde el más sencillo para quienes se inician en el tejido de agujas hasta diseños más elaborados que involucran dos juegos de agujas con puntas en ambos lados por ejemplo.
El gran acierto de este libro es que todo se teje con agujas circulares para evitar el tener que cerrar los costados. Esto mismo facilita el poder tejer la prenda justo a la medida del animalito pues se puede tejer de arriba hacia abajo o viceversa.
Los dos patrones básicos con toda serie de variantes son un sweater sin mangas y el otro con mangas ranglan.
Los diseños son divertidos y los diagramas muy claros con toda la información necesaria.

Translation: This is one of the loveliest books in my hands has fallen in recent times...Sweaters and coats fabrics for favorite pet: the dog!

Clearly and with dozens of suggestions, the author takes us by the hand, taking into account the size of your pet, if your dog's torso is long like a sausage dog or wide like a bulldog or spindly legs...Everything in the book is covered as they are part of a basic table where three sizes are shown with standard measurements as neck circumference, chest, long torso, limb circumference and weight of the pet. From the steps you take, projects can be adapted simply for a canine companion garment.

The book includes 14 projects, from the simplest to those new to the fabric of needles to more elaborate designs involving two sets of needles with tips on both sides for example.

The great success of this book is that everything is woven with circular needles to avoid having to close the sides. This also makes it easier to knit the garment just as far as the animal can be woven from top to bottom or vice versa.

The two basic patterns with any number of variants are sleeveless sweater and the other with raglan sleeves.
The designs are fun and clear diagrams with all the necessary information.
Seamless Knits for Posh Pups includes an adorable collection of 14-sweater designs - most of which are worked from top-down with seamless construction.

Instructions are included for making adjustments to the designs to make them fit your pet - if he / she varies in size from the measurements included.

All designs are available in sizes small, medium and large - with one design also included in size extra large. The patterns are specifically written for dogs sized from 8-30 pounds.

Each design is adorable! My favorite is Otis :)

If you like to make sweaters for your fur-baby and love to knit this book is an excellent choice!

From a very young age, Sharon Sebrow has enjoyed needlework of all kinds, with guidance from her grandmothers, magazines, and books. As a teacher, Sharon's ultimate joy is seeing the satisfaction of beginners when they successfully use a technique they thought was beyond their capabilities.

In 2004 "Sharon Sews," a question-and-answers column, was published in national quilting magazines. In 2009 Sharon's first book was published, detailing how to make the traditional Kaleidoscope quilt block using her patented template, the Kaleidoscope Smart-Plate.

Sharon's philosophy is, "If it takes too long, it won't get finished!"
