After crocheting the Well Dressed Dog Coat, I had some leftover yarn – just enough to make the Well Dressed Cowl! Gorgeous separates, they make the perfect pair for any pet lover!

If you have made (or are going to make!) the Well Dressed Dog Coat in Small or Medium, you’ll have just enough yarn left over to make the Well Dressed Cowl! If you have a larger dog (or no dog), or prefer a longer cowl or infinity scarf style, then you’ll want to start with 3 new balls of yarn.
This cowl is soft, cozy, looks great, and is quick to crochet – which is a good thing, because as soon as you wear yours, you’ll start getting requests for more!

I love the way Lion Brand New Basic 175 looks with these classic stitches – and the way the stitch pattern opens itself up to all sorts of colors schemes. Alone or together, these patterns are easy to make, fun to wear, and wonderful to give. I hope you enjoy the free crochet Well Dressed Cowl pattern!
