Triangle Cowl for a Tiny Creature

Dachshunds need sweaters. Seriously, this little dog, with his short coat, is like a heat-seeking missile. He’ll sleep in front of the heat vent in the kitchen that blows warm air, loves a good nap in a sun puddle, and especially loves a seat on your lap under a big blanket. But, when I put a sweater on Jackson, he shakes. It’s worse than shivers, it’s like he is being punished, and I’m just trying to help him stay warm.  When I first made his neckwarmer, it was more of a joke, but he didn’t shake! So, he wears his neckwarmer pretty much daily from November through March, since 2008. He could use a new one, so when I came across the Triangle Cowl for Tiny Creatures it seemed like a great idea. The yarn is mystery stash – I think it’s from Farmhouse Yarns. I cast on fewer stitches and knit for a length of 15″, then sewed the ends together. Perfect. I like how the yarn started to pool in stripes too.  Pretty nice for a quickie project!
