A snood for sight hounds, who suffer really badly from the cold due to thin skin and fur. Most kennel coats or outdoor coats can leave a gap around the neck so the snood is a perfect piece of knitwear to cover the gap. This knitting pattern is free to those who knit multiple items for rescue organisations only and I may consider giving it free to those on benefits or pensions if they apply with proof. Other people can download it for a donation of 100% of the proceeds go to a greyhound charity
