Created to accompany the Dottie Vest dog sweater pattern so you can match your best friend!

Pattern Notes:
This quick to knit scrunchie is knit in the round with some simple stranded colourwork and then seamed up around a hair elastic. It was designed to match the Dottie Vest for dogs, so the polka dot pattern is identical to the one on the vest. Linked video tutorials of the entire process are included to help you along the way.

Long tail cast on, knitting in the round, two colour stranded colourwork, seaming.

One size. You can make the scrunchie larger and have more ‘scrunch’ to it by casting on more stitches or continuing for more rounds by adding an extra row of dots.

Suggested Yarn:
I knit these scrunchies in Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK specifically to match the Dottie Vest dog sweater. This is a fun scrappy project as you can use almost anything in your stash and you don’t need much of it.

This is an estimate, the final yardage will vary based on your yarn choice and tension
