Mighty Miss Millie

I adopted Millie from a local rescue in February of 2020. It was just a few weeks before we went into lockdown for the pandemic. She’s sweet, sassy, funny, mischievous, and I can’t remember how I ever lived without her.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

Fold work in half, with right sides facing so that last row of section 4 lines up with first row of section 1. Using tail, sew first and last rows together.

Weave in all ends

The shorter side of your snood is meant to be the front. However, if your dog has a longer head, it can be worn the other way too.

    My snood came out way too small, even after measuring my dogs head. Were there supposed to be hdc stitches in this pattern, as suggested in the description?

    • Pia Thadani

      no it’s all sc – the hdc mentioned in the difficulty level description was a mistake, I’ve removed that now – thanks for bringing it to my attention.

      As far as sizing, were you able to meet the pattern gauge? Which size were you working, and was the issue the length or the circumference?

    • Pia Thadani

      Hi Nancy 🙂 if you want, you can email me a picture of what you have and I’ll try to help. Info at StitchesnScraps.com – I’m traveling this weekend so may not reply until Monday.

      • Cathy

        I made the snood for my friends dog who has an ear infection. As soon as the ear infection is gone, along with all the goop that’s in his ear, I’ll share the pics. Started another one today☺️

      • Rodrigo

        Super easy pattern. Did it in 2 days. Perfect fitting. Only problem was that my puppy didn’t like it . She became frozen

        • Pia Thadani

          Oh no! 🙁 Yes, that’s definitely a risk with dog clothing. I’m lucky in that Millie tolerates pretty much anything I put on her (except shoes). Maybe try letting her sleep with it for a bit so she gets used to the fabric and the scent and then try again with lots of encouragement and treats.
