3 Dog hair grabber Crochet Patterns

UG!!!  The Dog Is shedding 
and there is hair everywhere!!!!

Well, I have a solution!
3 Dog hair grabbers
Crochet patterns.

Works for Cat hair too!

1. A Swiffer style Mop Cover
2. A Handheld Duster Cover
3. A Key Board Duster 

These are great useful projects 
that will use up some of 
your left over yarns,
 because it takes very 
little to make them.

Please add this crochet pattern to your favorites on,

Acrylic yarn, when used for dusting
 will cause a static effect, 
that the dog hair will 
practically jump onto the duster.

I used some Red Heart Super Saver 
I had left from a project.
