Puppy Cowl Pattern

This simple cowl should fit a toy breed puppy around 6-8 weeks old. It’s inspired by my sweet new Yorkie-Poo, Daisy Kay. 🎀🐶🎀

Hope y’all enjoy!



  • Worsted weight or cotton yarn
  • G Hook, 4.25mm (I used Boye)
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors


  • Chain Stitch (CS)
  • Double Crochet (DC)
  • Double Crochet, Front Loop Only (DC, FLO)
  • Double Crochet, Back Loop Only (DC, BLO)
  • Slip Stitch
  • Single Crochet (SC)


  • About 20 minutes. Super quick project!


  • 5″ W x 2.75″ H


  • 0.5oz, 14 grams


  • Alternate each row between DC, FLO & DC, BLO to achieve rigged look.
  • Chain two to begin each row.
  • DC directly into next stitch to begin new row after chaining two.
  • Your chain 2 at the beginning of each row counts as a stitch.
  • Each row should have 10 stitches.
  • Making it for a larger puppy?! Add a few extra rows or use a larger hook size.


  • Begin by chaining 11.
  • Row 1: Skip the first chain stitch and DC in each chain until you reach the end for a total of 10 DC.
  • Row 2: Chain 2, DC, FLO in each stitch for a total of 10 stitches.
  • Row 3: Chain 2, DC, BLO in each stitch.
  • Rows 4-16: Continue alternating between DC, FLO & DC, BLO until you have a total of 16 rows, chaining 2 to begin each new row.
  • Slip stitch to finish & sew up the back to connect the last row with the rirst row.
  • Next, add a border by single crocheting around the top & bottom of the cowl.
  • Use yarn needle to sew in ends.
  • Add fringe if desired.
