Bowtie Collar for Dogs and Pets Free Knitting Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Here is a fun was to spruce up your pooch or pet
 for a picture or festive occasion, 
and learn to knit.
This Bow Tie collar  is super easy to knit up, 
and is very easy to adjust for any size pet.
You can stitch up a bunch of these in so many colors!
It is a great way to use up some of those left over yarns, too.
I designed this pattern using Worsted weight yarns (4).
So Grab Your left over yarns from 
your yarn basket and whip some up.
As you can see form this picture, 
this knitting pattern is soooooooooooooooooo
easy, and fun to make. 
And because it is a slip on,
 it is easy to get on and off your pet.

I love the collar. Can you tell us how many times did you change colors for your size dogs? In other words, how many times did you repeat rows 3-6?
