Patterns for Pooches
This book has 35 designs for dogs of all shapes and sizes and Anne has included the most popular designs that keep getting ordered time after time from her very successful business on line. Anne would describe her style as simple and practical with a quirky sense of humour, and she uses crochet because it is versatile medium that can be easily modified and customised. Throughout the book there are sizing options and instructions on how to tailor an item to give your dog the best fit possible. Basic crochet stitches are used for the patterns so they are easy for beginners to intermediate levels. Patterns include both UK and US stitch names and measurements. A conversion chart should be checked before starting your patterns to make sure you are familiar with similarities and differences between stitch names.
