Rated 3 out of 5 by Julie from Not bad but collar area needs to be tighter It was very simple to figure out, but I have doxie's and the neck area is huge - I think I will try the pattern without the neck and go back after it is done and crochet the neck area on and reduce the size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Culookn from Flipping the yarn What does it mean "when knitting the rows backwards, flip the yarn as you cast on"?

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stacey from Not for beginners I've never knitted anything in my life and had a hard time figuring this out. The instructions leave out some key items that I had to look up on the internet. Even then, I got lost and just had to make some things up. It came out okay but not great.
