Shamrock Dog Collar Crochet pattern

Shamrock Dog Collar Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

We Have just retested and Updated This Crochet Pattern.
We also added a few more sizes.
And a Brand New Video

This is really different style and 
I think would be great in any colors, for any Holiday.
Just change the Shamrock to a flower, heart, or star.
or any applique, button or bow.

oh that is adorable. Your Rosie looks very much like our Rosie. Our Rosie would be a very reluctant model though. Have a great day.
