Dog Snood Crochet Pattern - For All Size Dogs

This Crochet Pattern is designed for All Size Dogs.
From the teeny to the giant!
 and is based on your dog's measurements,
not stitch counts.

Skill - Easy

Hook: H
Tape Measure - to measure your dog's neck
Yarn: #5 chunky or 2 strands of any Worsted weight yarn,
 I do not recommend cotton.
I used Charisma - Sunny Day from Michael's - it is very soft.

Chain (ch)
Slip Stitch ( sl at)
Double Crochet (dc)
Front Post Double Crochet ( fp dc)
Double Crochet Decrease ( dc dec)

Getting Started:

The first thing you need to do is measure your dog's neck LOOSELY.

You will also need the Length measurement:
from the crown of your dog's head,
down the back of their head , to the collar.

Pattern :
NOTE:- neck measurement + 7 inches = how long your ch should be. ( example Maximo's neck is 10 inches + 7 inches = 17 inches. 

R 1 : Join ch in a circle with a sl st.

R 2 : 1 dc in each ch around, join with a sl st, ch 3

R 3 : 1 dc in the 1st dc, *1 fp dc in the next dc, 1 dc in the next st, repeat from * around, join, ch 3

R 4 : 1 dc in each st around, join, ch 3

R 5-7 : Repeat R 4

R 8 : (decrease rows) 1 dc in the 1st 4 sts, *1 dc dec with the next 2 sts, 1 dc in the next 4 sts, Repeat from * around , join, ch 3

R 9 : Repeat R 8

              Repeat R : 8 until you have decreased to your dog's neck measurement .
              ( Maximo's was 10 inches, so I decreased to 10 inches)

R 10 : 1 dc in each dc around, join, ch 3

                  Repeat R 10 for the length of your dog's neck.

R 11 : Repeat R 3 and tie off.

Keep your pooch warm
with this cool Snood!
