Dog Poop Christmas Ornament...REALLY!

OK..... I thought of this the other day
 when I was out
on the front lawn doing 'Dog Poop Patrol"
with my Grand kids who are 3 and 4 yrs old. 
I gave each one a different color plastic
poop bag and we began to pick it up
putting it in the bigger trash bag.
They thought it was a fun game and
They loved it.

See The Video on my Youtube Channel at this LINK

This Pattern has been used for

 Dog and Animal Rescue fund raisers.
It is a great Seller!

It is a fun "Gag" gift for any one who has small pooches like me.

Hat Trim and Pompom

Trim: Thread a 12 inch piece of fuzzy white yarn on your needle. 

Stitch loose long stitches around the hat, you may need to pull a little
 to keep them even.

Pompom- Wrap yarn around one finger loosely, pull a 12 inch piece of yarn

 through the loop and tie. I didn't cut mine, but you can if you want too. 
Use the 2 long ends to attach to top of hat.


Stitch 2 French knots or short stitches for the eyes With the White yarn.
Stitch a smile on with red yarn.

Then with green yarn, cut 2 12 inch length, then count down 5 rounds from the hat 

and tie them around the poop, so it pulls in and form a head. Tie in the front and trim.

Cut another 12 piece of green yarn and loop through the hat to form the tie.

I hope you think this is as funny as me
and my grand kids do.We just put up the
Christmas tree and it was the
first ornament on the tree!

Keep your negative comments to your self.
 This ornament is meant as a light hearted,
silly ornament.

I am sorry if this crochet pattern is offensive to anyone. I have never seen South Park and don’t know the character Hanky. This is intented as a gag gift for people who own small dogs, and know what its like to be constintenly picking up dog poop. It has been used as a fund raiser for dog rescues, as well.
