It gave me the idea of trying to replicate that and sew across the scarf horizontally, hopefully without the stitches being seen. I'm not sure if it'll work, but it's worth a try.

How would I block it with the two sides sewn together? Would be just like any other blocked project?

I can't remember what breed it is. I made the pattern then forgot what the dog was. I think it's about the size of a Sant Bernard. It's a big stout and hardy dog, looks like a hard worker. I'm meeting up with the woman Tuesday to give her the scarf, so I'll find out then.

I was thinking it looked a bit like a St. Bernard, too, just the coloring wasn't quite the same.
