Football Dog Bandanna - Free Knitting pattern - Posh Pooch Designs

I have Been Working on this Pattern 
for about 2 weeks.
It is an easy pattern,
 I wanted it to include 3 sizes.
And I wanted to get it out this week.
This is fun for Dogs, Cats, Bunnies, goats
 or any pet,
 because the pattern is written for
  Small, medium and large sizes.
It is all Stitched in Garter Stitch, to give it that
 "bumpy look" like a real football.
Plus it has pom poms on the ties, 
so you can root on your favorite team!

Yes, those are Denver Bronco Colors! 

The Bandanna can be worn 
with the flag to the front
 or with the pompom to the front.
Both ways looks really cool!
