Continue to repeat R : 14 and R : 15,

BO and weave in your ends. 

2 Trim options: Both work great with similar results.
Trim- With the Crochet Hook, and the fuzzy yarn,
sc across the edge of the Bandanna.
Thread the Fuzzy yarn in your yarn needle,
And Whip stitch the fuzzy yarn across the edge of the bandanna.

Buckle – Lay buckle on the center of the black stripe.
Sew in place with matching thread and yarn needle.
