Seamless Knits for Posh Pups: A Giveaway!

August 14th, 2015

Pin It

Today, I’m excited to bring you a giveaway featuring Sharon Sebrow’s latest book, Seamless Knits for Posh Pups! Cats have been dominating the Internet lately, but let’s not forget about “man’s best friend.”

Sharon’s dog sweaters are top-down knits (or can be worked from the bottom up), which makes it easy for you to knit one continuous piece for your furry friend. Inspired by the lack of seamless knits for her own pup, Sharon knitted classic designs which can be modified to your liking; play with different textures, color combinations, and styles.

Below, you can see the simple construction which has been finished two different ways. Otis is sporting a hooded sweater, while Cecil has a classic turtleneck. Both are cute, but who do you want to cast your vote for as the cutest design?

3 lucky winners will be chosen to receive a copy of the book and 2 balls of Vanna’s Choice® yarn. Contest ends on August 27th.

* U.S Residents only (see the fine print under the images below)
* A comment will not be counted as a vote. After you vote, be sure to enter your name and email – we need to know who you are if you win!
