"Hugs and Kisses" Dog Collar Crochet Pattern XOXOX

XOXOX  Hugs and Kisses Crochet Collar XOXOX
 for Dogs, Cats, Bunnies and Humans!
I decided to call this collar design
 "Hugs and Kisses" because of the back post
 "crosses" and "holes" in the pattern of collar. 
I wanted to make something pretty and fun for my dogs,
 as well, as learn a new technique. I really enjoyed 
designing this piece and how you will too.
