Star knitter Sue Stratford's new book is packed with friendly faithful dogs and puppies for you to knit. Suitable for beginners, but with projects to provide a fun challenge for more experienced knitters, this book contains 23 patterns. The dogs cover a wide range of styles from the quirky to the fun to the more true-to-life; and while some like Danger Dog are fun toys, others have a more practical purpose, like Stripy Sausage, the dachshund draught excluder.
As well as being lucky enough to spend her time thinking up and knitting new designs, Sue also owns and runs The Knitting Hut, a small but perfectly formed yarn store and online shop selling pattern books, kits and yarns. She teaches knitting and crochet workshops as well as offering advice to customers and loves sharing her skills with others. Her mind is always full of new ideas, often inspired by the beautiful yarns stocked in the shop. Sue lives in Milton Keynes with her husband, five children and a selection of pets.www.theknittinghut.co.uk
