12 Collars of Christmas - Pattern # 4 "The Skull"

12 Collars of Christmas, Pattern giveaway # 4: "The Skull".

 I decided that for Halloween I wanted to design a dog 
collar that was black, 
but not scary. More on the fun side.  
But the Collar was too plain,even with the "Skull" appilque.
 I love the picot stitch on baby things  hats, 
and some other items, but not sure what it would look
 like on a collar. I put the picot stitch all around the collar, 
I love it! 
 It  gives the collar the appearance of having spikes.  
How cool is that!

Here is the Crochet pattern for the Dog Collar "The Skull".

See this Video on my Youtube Channel at this LINK
