Little Roses Dog Collar Knitting Pattern

I designed a Crochet Pattern 
for a Dog Collar with Flowers,
and I was asked if I had a Knitting version.
I did not, so I designed one.
 This is a great beginner pattern. 
If you want to learn to knit 
and make some fun for your dog or pet. 
You can customize the colors
 for any season of the year.
Add 1 rose or a bunch of roses.
This pattern works for any 
and all size dogs, 

cats or any pet.
And it only takes a small amount of yarn,
So just grab some left overs 
from your yarn stash and get knitting.
