Haute Diggity Dog Kerchief pattern
Any gauge yarn can make a jaunty kerchief for any size pup with this easy pattern. Follow a quick formula, cast on, and add stripes or a stitch pattern if you like. The pattern itself is a solid 50% just photos of cute dogs in kerchiefs.
This triangular kerchief is knit flat starting at the top. An i-cord cast on is optional but worth the trouble. Decreases at both edges of every row bring the work quickly to a point. Sew velcro or a snap to the top ends for an easy on/easy off fashion win.
