Monday Mischeif-Easy Knitted Valentine's Day Dog Collars
Mom knitted us up some super easy Valentine's Day Collars. They only take about an hour or less to make. This would be a good first project for someone just starting out in knitting. For the small dogs I cast on about 40 stitches of worsted weight yarn (the collars will be stretchy so the size is forgiving) on a size 4 40 inch circular needle. For the large dogs I cast on about 90 stitches Then I divided the stitches and joined in the round for magic loop.
I knitted in 2 by 2 rib (knit 2 purl 2) until the collars where the width I wanted then I bound off in the pattern. That's it! I sewed some little pink heart buttons on with the left over yarn and they were done.
One ball of Knit Picks worsted weight yarn in Gypsy was more then enough for five collars.
