This design was conceived by one of my very dearest friends from the metro Tacoma, Washington area. Her name is Lynnette Coleman. Being a novice crocheter, Lynn knew what she wanted to achieve, but not how to accomplish it. Thus, I entered the picture. Knowing that I needed to keep the pattern as simple as possible so that she could make more of these wonderful neck scarves, the only thing added, that Lynn didn't yet know, was the decrease and how to sc around the edge of a finished product. Therefore, this is a wonderful pattern that any novice/beginner can accomplish. Copyright: This copyright is a simply one. Feel free to post photos anywhere you want (of your finished neck scarf). Make as many as you'd like for yourself/to gift/to sell. DO NOT sell them online. DO NOT post this pattern to your website or that of others. And PLEASE do not try to pass this pattern off as one of your own designs. Lynnette and I put a lot of time and effort in this pattern. Besides, you can link this store to your website so that others can help me to purchase more yarn for more designing for you all. GAUGE Since this pattern requires a button-which can be moved to set for a perfect fit-the gauge is unimportant for small pets.
