Lily Sugar 'n Cream Dog Bed & Kerchief

Your four-legged friend deserves the absolute best. You'’ll be hard-pressed to find a more comfortable, cozy, bed for your dog than the Lily Sugar ‘'n Cream Dog Bed. Throw in the matching kerchief for extra cuteness and tail wags!

Use a gauge of 14 sc and 15 rows (4") to crochet a bed that measures approximately 36" square and a kerchief that measures approximately 34" wide x 11" deep. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
