"An ideal and thoroughly 'user friendly' instruction manual and guide, "Crocheted Dogs" will prove to be an especially welcome and enduringly popular addition to personal Needlecraft collections. Ideal for both the novice and experienced crocheting enthusiasts..."--Mid West Book Review
"If you're looking for the 'best in show' when it comes to fabulous crocheted toys, then look no further than Vanessa Mooncie's amazing new collection, Crocheted Dogs! This book is perfect for crochet addicts with a paw-ssion (we are not sorry) for dogs. The 10 dogs featured in this book are detailed and some of the most realistic interpretations of our faithful companions that we've ever seen in crochet... Vanessa has a great collection of books under her belt, including Crocheted Wild Animals, Animal Heads and more, so you know you are in good hands when you purchase this latest collection. We love Vanessa's signature, true-to-life style and know you will too with this latest offering."--Crochet Now
