Crochet Pattern for Dog Bandana Collar

Rosie and Maximo love there New 

Bandana or Bandanna?
Is Bandana spelled with
 2 n's or 3 ? 
When I Google it, it comes up both ways,
but which way is correct?
I decided to up date the Pattern with
 new pics and a Video Tutorial.

I looked in Mirriam Webster dictionary online and the 2n spelling comes first no matter what way you enter the word so I guess they're both acceptable but the 2n is more common. Your bandan(n)a is cute!

Sara, I have tried 5 times to make the bandna with 45 stiches would not come out so I made it with 35 came out perfect.So I dont understand how you did it with 45?? Will you explain what I did wrong with 45? thanks

Sara said...

Sorry jan, not really sure what you did, but if 35 works, that is great. This pattern can be made bigger or smaller very easily.

Sara said...

This pattern has been corrected. (The 9 was transpossed as a 7 which through off the rows.) Jan this is probably what caused your rows to be off. thanks, Sara

Anonymous said...

In rows 4-9 are you supposed to do 2dc then ch1? or just 2dc?

Sara said...

You stitch 2 Double crochets in the first ch 1 space, then you stitch 2 double crochets in each chain 1 space across, then chain 3, turn. YOu do this pattern for rows 4 - 9.
Hope this explains it better,
