I really enjoyed designing and making this these collars.
 I  wanted to try this style of beading and thought a dog  collar would be a great place
 to learn it. It is actually very simple
 and has really cool look to it.
Now that 12 weeks of Christmas collars are done...
don't worry I already have a few ideas 
for some more free crochet patterns.
Do you have any ideas for crochet patterns or dog related  items you would like a pattern for?
