This neckwarmer was inspired by walking around the dog park with my dog’s leash looped around my neck while he runs around. Rowan (that’s my dog’s name—yes, he was named after the famed British yarn; I’m a big nerd) is an Italian Greyhound mix. Technically he’s probably small enough that I could attach this cowl’s I-cord to his collar. Problem is, he runs incredibly fast and I don’t, and I’d end up laying in a heap, strangled by my own cowl!

My day job is co-owner of The Yarnery, St. Paul, Minn. We love dogs at the shop, and if you follow us on Instagram @theyarnery and #yarnerypups you’ll see our favorite visitors. Follow my personal IG, @rohrknits, to see pics of ways you can style the I-cord “leash” of this design. And follow @rowanrohr to see Rowan napping in the sun. If you have any questions about the pattern, please email rohrknits@gmail.com or message me here on Ravelry.
