Crochet Doggy Bowties!

Hi all!

I have a brilliant little crochet pattern for you all today, created by the brilliant and talented Crochet Addict UK! This pattern creates a Valentines themed Doggy Bowtie for your furry friends that can be slipped on to their collar! The pattern is relatively simple and should be quite easy for beginners to crocheting.

I will soon be uploading my own pattern for the knitted version of these Doggy Bowties so look out for that!

If you happen to have a go at any of these patterns yourself, please take pictures and send them in! I love to see all of your work!
