Is your pet cat or dog a prince or princess worthy of a crown jewel? How about a whole necklace of jewels in the form of a crochet pet collar? This quick and easy pattern will have your pet looking fit for a royal throne in an hour!
I designed knit and crochet project trackers! This is the large print version for tired eyes. So much easier than using apps, scraps of paper or a plain notebook.
Three project sizes, a handy ruler and hook guide inside the cover and plenty of room for notes in each pattern.
Buy the Large print project tracker.
Buy the regular size print project tracker.
I have had bad eyesight since age 18 so large print is a godsend when you can’t see apps and dark yarn, let alone going from one to the other on a crochet-a-thon during a Netflix binge.
This pattern is also a great stash buster because it uses small amounts of yarn. The jewel color is a heart puff stitch and puff stitches use much more yarn so you will need more of that than the other two colors. Amounts needed will vary based on the size collar you are making.
Get creative with jewel colors! Maybe royal blue sapphire, striking emerald green or as shown the reddest of rubies.
For other yarn stash busters read this post on what to do with leftover yarn.
