I knitted my own bulldog., 10 Nov. 2010
I'm an intermediate knitter, meaning that I have a wide variety of knitting skills, but there's still a ton that I don't know. I was a little bit concerned that the patterns would be too difficult for me. However, the authors do a fantastic job of explaining obscure stitches in ways that make sense. Thus I picked up several new skills just from making the bulldog. The patterns knit up surprisingly quickly. And my bulldog turned out quite well! Not as perfectly as the authors' bulldog, but pretty close, and definitely well enough to give it as a gift.
I highly recommend this book for other intermediate knitters. If you're a beginner who wants to pick up some new skills in a fun way, this is worth considering, too.
