I was looking at a shirt today that had two different thread colors. To those that don't know much about sewing, you need two bobbins of thread, one for each side of the work. Sometimes on double sided peaces of work that are different colors they use different threads to match both sides. 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.
