Hi! This is Maggie from Crochet Happens.
While debating what to make today’s post about, I decided to take some inspiration from my favorite furry friend and share this crochet pattern for a super cute dog scarf I made a couple months ago. I was asked to make this scarf for a friend’s amazing service dog and was super happy with how it turned out. And how photogenic is her dog, Remi?
What Materials Do You Need to Crochet a Dog Scarf?
- Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn – I used 170 Yards of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton Yarn in the color Pink for the large size scarf.
- J10/6mm Crochet Hook
- Darning needle for sewing and attaching the pom pom.
- A faux fur pom pom (or you could make a yarn pom pom).
- Maisy’s Holiday Dog Scarf Crochet Pattern, either the free version or there is an option to purchase an Ad-Free, Printer Friendly Version from Yarn and Chai.
This crochet pattern called for worsted weight yarn that has some stretch to it, so I chose to use some acrylic yarn that I already had on hand. It also called for a faux fur pom pom but I think a yarn pom pom would also be super cute if you didn’t have a faux fur one on hand. I used a 4″ pom pom for the one I made as suggested by the pattern which I already had on hand for some toddler hats I was making.
How Long Does It Take to Crochet a Dog Scarf?
It didn’t take me very long to crochet this dog scarf and add the finishing details, about an hour and a half for the large size.
Finished scarf measures about 24″ long by 4″ wide for the large size. The pattern also gives instructions for small and medium sizes as well.
With J10/6mm hook: 13 HDC and 12 rows = 4″.
Overall, this crochet pattern was pretty simple and beginner friendly. It only uses one stitch but creates a great ribbed texture. The trickiest part was attaching the fur pom pom, but it wasn’t too difficult at all, and pattern includes some nice illustrations that do a great job of visually explaining the finishing process.
This scarf would make a great gift for any dog lover as well as a great item to bring to fall and winter markets, especially with matching scarfs for the owners. I know I would love one!
So grab yourself some yarn and a pom and make your best furry friend their own adorable and fun scarf to keep them warm in style.
