Tuxie Keyhole Scarf Crochet Pattern

Tuxie Keyhole Scarf Crochet Pattern

The Tuxie Keyhole Scarf Crochet Pattern came to be because I was watching a friend’s dog, Tuxie,  for a few days.  He’s a small dog and he was always shivering. 

So, I decided to make him something to keep him warm and make him more adorable too.  You can crochet the Keyhole Scarf to accessorize your woof-ing dog and make a purr-fect accessory for your cat. 

Tuxie

I love celebrating our pets and showing them as much love and appreciation for them.  The Tuxie Keyhole Scarf Crochet Pattern is another new release of mine that will be featured in my 2024 Pet Appreciation Blog Hop on May 21, 2024.

Join me and 15 other fabulous crochet designers who are sharing FREE crochet patterns they designed just for Pets at my 2024 Pet Appreciation Blog Hop.

  • To easily customize the fit to your pet, measuring their neck size would be a great help for you to figure out the perfect fit to it.
  • Because this is a scarf, if you are customizing it, I suggest measuring between their ears to the bottom of their chest and doubling the measurement.  
  • A helpful tip is to remember the even st is the hdc and the odd st is a sc

Flower Pet Collar Crochet Pattern

Flower Pet Collar Crochet Pattern

The Flower Pet Collar Crochet Pattern is a fast and easy design that can be easily customized to fit any sized pet.  When my son’s dog was a pup, he started to put scarves and shirts on her to make her look pretty.  He asked me to make a scarf for her. 

Now I can’t stop designing accessories for her.  I even started designing things for my cat Maze because I couldn’t leave her out from looking pretty. 

Inside this crochet pattern you will find a crochet pattern for the Collar and a crochet pattern for a Flower.

Your Buddy’s Bed Crochet Pattern

Your Buddy’s Bed Crochet Pattern

This post contains affiliate links that appear at no cost to you.

Does your cat or dog take up the whole bed? You can make Your Buddy’s Bed Crochet Pattern for Cats & Dogs and get a better night’s sleep.

When my grand-furry Freyja comes over to spend the night, she takes up the WHOLE bed!  I am left with the very edge of the bed and no covers!!  When I finally kick Freyja off the bed, she will curl up and sleep on her own bed.

Also, when my cat Maze sleeps in the bed with she is either curled up behind my knees or she lays on top of my feet.  I can now lay her bed next to my bed and I get a better nights sleep.

So I designed the Your Buddy’s Bed Crochet Pattern to help me and you get a better nights sleep.

Your Buddy’s Bed Crochet Pattern is part of my 2024 Pet Appreciation Blog Hop and you can get a FREE copy starting at 9a EST on May 1, 2024 until May 2, 2024 at 8:59a EST

Be sure to visit my 2024 Pet Appreciation Blog Hop daily until May 21, 2024 and get FREE daily crochet patterns from 15 crochet designers who are sharing their Fur-Baby crochet patterns with you!

Information about Your Buddy’s Bed Crochet Pattern

Your Buddy’s Bed Crochet Pattern is designed just for the cute little furry friends you have in your life.  It is a woof-ing great make for your dog or cat to have a bed of their very own.  There are 2 sizes to choose from, for a purr-fect fit.

I used Caron One Pound 100% Acrylic Yarn.  (16 oz/453.6 g) (812 yds/742 m) in Azure for the 20” x 20”
I also used Caron Big Cakes 100% Acrylic Yarn (10.5 oz/300 g) (603 yds/551 m) for the 24” x 24”

Materials:
800-1100 yards of #4 Worsted Weight Yarn
US H or 5mm Crochet Hook
16 oz Pillow Stuffing

Finished Sizes:
20” x 20”
24” x 24”

The Your Buddy’s Bed Crochet Pattern uses the N-Stitch.  The N-Stitch uses the basic crochet stitches, the single crochet stitch and the half double crochet stitch.

Because you are only using the single crochet and the half double crochet, the combination of stitches create a nice beautiful texture.  It is also a close stitch which will keep it’s shape and will help keep the Pillow Stuffing inside.

You can find a Left Handed Version of the N-Stitch on my YouTube Channel
