How to make a pet scarf

Approx. 2 minutes read

Does your pet hate wearing winter jerseys, but you really want them to look cute and cosy? Why not make your fur baby a gorgeous looking scarf? Here you can learn how to knit a very basic scarf. You can even add a pom-pom or tassels on the end.

What you will need:

  • Wool in two colours or more
  • Number 8 knitting needles
  • Scissors
  • Wool needle

Knit a long rectangle in the length you need to fit loosely around your dog’s neck, plus about another 8 cm to make the loop for the pom-pom to go through. Do as many fittings as you need to get it right.

Step 2:

Once you have finished the length of the scarf, bind off your stitches.

Then take one of the ends and fold it over to make a loop. Make it big enough so that the end of the scarf can fit through. Take into consideration that the pom-pom or tassels will need to go through the folded half. Next, thread your yarn needle and sew the end of the loop.

Step 3:

At the end of the scarf you can add a fringe/tassel or a pom-pom. If you do not know how to make either, here is how:
