Dog Days 3 is a small kerchief. It can be worn as a headwrap or as a neckerchief, or worn by a dog as a dog bandana, provided your dog doesn’t eat bandanas and you really like your dog, enough to knit him or her a scarf.

Because it is so small and works up so fast, this design also serves as an excellent primer for diagonally-knit triangle shawl construction.

The .PDF includes 3 sizes—small, medium, and large—so you can dial in the fit. I’d recommend a little bit of negative ease, about 2” with regards to head circumference, if you want to wear it as a headband, so you may want to knit the smallest size

About 80-120 yards of Malabrigo Yarn Rios (colorway shown: 011, Apple)
1 16” circular needle in US7-8/4.5-5.0mm, or size needed for gauge
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Gauge is 17 sts and 24 rows over moss stitch! Gauge is pretty important to the fit of this kerchief. Please be sure to check your gauge.
