Pet Bandana Free Crochet Pattern

Pet Bandana Free Crochet Pattern

Today I want to share with you the Pet Bandana Free Crochet Pattern.  Doesn’t my Maze look beautiful wearing her bandana?

Pets can seem like our babies and part of the family.  You add accessories to your outfits and your family’s outfits, so why not accessorize your pet as well with the Pet Bandana.  Use your scrap yarn and make these in every color of the rainbow.  The pet bandana free crochet pattern has 3 sizes you can choose from.

 

My beautiful kitty, Maze was a rescue.  My son worked in a factory that used heavy machines and equipment.  My son knew how much I loved animals, so he called me upset telling me what happened and asked me to take her in because she was starving.

My hubby wasn’t too happy with me at the time, As soon as he seen my son holding her his heart melted and he fell in love with her!  Maze is more his cat than mine, but she is loved and appreciated just the same.

My Maze, and I am sure your pet too, brings me so much comfort and joy.  She curls up in my lap and as soon as I touch her, my heart just melts.  I pray your pets sooth you as they burrow into your hearts as well.

Freyja Nordic Necklace

The Freyja Nordic Necklace Crochet Pattern is one of those crochet patterns that you can customize from what it was originally designed for.  A little farther below you will see it how my testers customized theirs using thinner yarn for a person’s necklace; or used for a Hat Band; or used for a Wrist Band; or used for a Cat & Dog Necklace using both DK Weight and Worsted/Aran Weight Yarn.

So, why not even try different thicknesses of yarn to make yourself one!  You will find a free crochet pattern of the Freyja Nordic Necklace below.

 

 

The Freyja Nordic Necklace Crochet Pattern came to be because my son loves anything to do with Norse History.  That is why he named his dog Freyja.  Ever since she was a puppy I loved to dress her up.  My son even started asking me to make things for Freyja lol.  So I decided to design something that relates to Nordic History and Freyja’s name.  This is how I came up with this design.
