This review is from: Ami Ami Dogs: Seriously Cute Crochet (Paperback)
UK buyers should know that the hook sizing is in the US format (e.g. 2/0), so you may need to use conversion chart for UK mm equivalents. Yarn thickness is illustrated in a picture showing balls of yarn with the finished dogs sitting on them. I haven't checked, but this seems pointless unless the image is to scale, so it will be much easier to convert than looking up metre-age/100g or estimating 'lace-weight', 'worsted', 'DK' or '2-ply' as final size is not critical.
The dogs featured are of the 'wide-angle lens picture' type with big noses and surprised expressions. The breeds are not what I consider to be ordinary common UK family pets though - chihuahua, French bulldog, schnauzer rather than collies and terriers.
The patterns are multi-part and modular with different noses, ears and bodies, so combining various body parts it should be possible to re-create the family dog.
Each dog is pictured in 3 sizes, from 2" and a bit to a little over 1" but the sizing is all achieved by varying the size of crochet hook and thickness of yarn used. There is also an option to make a phone charm size.

Perfect for me, we have two Schnauzers and I think they are quite common round here.
