Pet Crafting 2

I always wanted to see what my little guy “Rocoe” would look like in a bow-tie. Here’s my version.

While Rocoe doesn’t like to have his picture taken, today he proved to be a great model.

If you love to crochet this is very easy. You first need to know your dog’s neck size. Then with a G hook half double crochet the band with 4 stitches across. You can do the band in one length or do two half lengths and add velcro. For the bow make two short lengths (I did the bow in a contrasting color to make it “pop”.) one at least 4″ and stitch end to end. The other a longer piece to make the actual bow part 6″ or longer or to desired length. Stitch the longer piece toghether first then place the 4″ band around the longer piece and the neckband. Walla! You now have a neckband bow-tie!

Hope you enjoyed this crafting tip!
