Finished Size:

Approximately 33” long and 9” wide. This bandana will fit medium-large size dogs (as shown on a 62 pound golden retriever).

To make the bandana smaller or larger, follow the pattern (you will need to repeat rows 4-5 fewer or more times) until you reach half of the desired length across the straight side, and then start to decrease.

Make sure that you decrease on the same side where you did increases, not on the straight side!

Follow the same principle if you want to use a different yarn weight.
