I’ve been working on some bigger projects lately, and decided I needed to take a break and finish a small project. I have been wanting to make some accessories for pet collars, so this seemed like the perfect time for this project. I made a crochet cat collar bow to start.
This project is quick and easy. It is perfect for using up scraps of yarn leftover from other projects.
For this bow I crocheted a loop to sew onto the back to slip the collar through. I left the instructions in for this, but next time I am going to sew a loop of elastic to the back to make it less bulky. This loop can be made using the method you prefer.
For this project I used Red Heart Super Saver and a 5.5mm crochet hook. You can make this with any brand of yarn you choose.

My old cat was not a fan of this project. Hopefully your cats will enjoy it more than mine did.
I plan on making more patterns for accessories to slip onto pet collars. Let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions for accessories you would like to see.
