Kid’s Dog Scarf Knitting Pattern- a fun take on a classic that’s easy to knit!
Indigo loves animals, so I thought I’d do a fun twist on a scarf for him. This scarf features a loop where the tail pulls through, so it easily stays on during play.
This Kid’s Dog Scarf Knitting Pattern is knit starting at the end of the tail. It’s a mix of knit and purl stitches which makes this ideal for beginners. The ears and eyes are knit separately and stitch on afterwards.
