‘I LOVE your DOG too’ is a simple, top down, one piece crescent shaped shawl.

The shawl is designed to drape over your shoulders or loosely around your neck as a scarf in a choice of two sizes using any weight yarn making this an all seasons accessory.

Pattern themes are brambles, foxgloves and dog paw prints, all things I can see from my window.

Due to its simplicity, the pattern is entirely written out with line by line instructions and stitch counts.

Gauge is not essential for this design and the gauge provided (4-ply/fingering weight yarn) is a guideline only. However, should your own gauge be different bear in mind this will affect the finished size as will using different weight yarns and needle sizes.
