Macrame Patterns: Dog Collar

by Macrame

This simple pattern uses alternating square knots to create a bi-colored collar for your dog.  The collar fits a medium sized dog.  For a smaller or larger dog simply reduce or increase the length of cording used.

Supplies Needed for this project:

1.       two 4-yard lengths of natural hemp, 1mm size

2.      two 4-yard lengths of forest green hemp (or color of choice), 1mm size.

Directions:

1.       Fold one natural strand in half.

2.      Hold the remaining strands together and tie around the first in a half knot ¾ inches from the fold.

3.      Slip the knot into a ring to secure the strands.

4.      Arrange the cording strands from left to right: green, natural, green, natural, natural, green, natural, green.

5.       Tie alternating square knots for 12 inches.

6.      Finish off the collar with an overhand knot.

7.       Trim the ends to 1 inch and slip the collar off the ring.

To clasp the collar:

Slip the end knot through the beginning loop.

Note that beads are not advised for pet projects as they could become a chocking hazard.

Happy knotting!
