Seamless Knits for Posh Pups includes 14-different sweater designs for dogs weighing from 8 to 30 pounds. The sleeveless designs can easily have sleeves added too!

Most of the designs are knit from the top-down and many include alternate color options to create the perfect look for your own favorite pup!

Approximate dog measurements are included and instructions for making adjustments to help achieve the perfect fit for your own dog are also discussed.

Quick tips are provided next, from pages 9-11; including reading charts, working partial rows and working with two circular needles at the same times.

A schematic is included with each pattern.

You will find the basic stitches included with illustrations on pages 58-59, abbreviations on page 60 and more helpful information on page 61.

The patterns are named after the dogs who are wearing them.
