12 Collars of Christmas Collar # 5 "Fringe Collar"

This is week # 5 in our 12 collars of Christmas
 crochet pattern give  away! 
 The free crochet pattern is the "Fringe Collar". 

This Pattern will work for any size Dog or Cat!
I really had a fun time designing this one.
 The length of the fringe is totally up to you.
 I really liked the effect of the longer fringe, 
but you might like the fringe shorter.

See the Video Tutorial on my Youtube Channel at this Link

 Please remember these collars are for decorative purposes
 only and are not strong enough to hold your dog leash.
