Bow tie Collar slide and Matching Cuffs
Maximo is modeling the Bow tie Collar slide and
 Matching Cuffs
I made them red for Valentines Day 
Please, Add This Crochet Pattern to Your

but Green would be good for St. Patrick's Day, 
and pink, white  or black would work for  Easter...
Great for a Doggie Wedding or Birthday party! 
Oh!  the possibilities!

Skill : Super Easy

Materials :
Hook : H
Yarn needle
Yarn; Worsted weight

Chain (ch)
Single crochet (sc)
Half Double Crochet (hdc)

Bow tie Slide:

Chain 31 with Red yarn - 12 inch dog neck
( 3 chs = 1 inch, add more chs to make it larger)

R: 1 - 1 hdc in 2nd ch from the hook, 29 more hdc, ch1 turn

R: 2-3 - 30 hdc, ch1, turn

R: 4 - 30 hdc, tie off, leaving a 12 inch tail of yarn

Put the ends of the bow tie together, and using the yarn tail sew them,
weave in the end.

Center of the Bow:
Ch 10 with white yarn

R: 1 - 9 sc, ch1, turn

R: 2 - 9 sc, and then tie off leaving a 8 inch tail for yarn

Wrap the center piece around the center of the bow tie,
and sew the ends together, tight enough to hold,
but loose enough to be able to slide the collar through the back.

Slide it right on your pets collar.

Ch 3, with red yarn, 8 hdc in the 2nd ch from the End,
join tie off leaving a 8 inch tail of yarn to sew the button with.
