Super quick and easy crochet dog bandana pattern using the ever so popular crochet granny stitch. The bandana scarf is worked diagonally using the corner to corner crochet technique.
Pets make great gift recipients, don’t they? I made this cute crochet dog bandana for our family pet dog Roxy. She is the latest member of the family and still a puppy at 7 months old!
You know they say you should start training dogs as soon as they are born! I reckon this applies to wearing crochet makes and posing for pictures too.
I must say it took a little while for Roxy to get used to her crochet dog bandana scarf but I think she did a fabulous job posing for pictures!
Crochet Dog Bandana Pattern Details
I loved making this crochet bandana for our dog! It is super easy and quick crochet make that will work up in less than half an hour!
I used the beginner friendly crochet granny stitch. This is one of the first stitches every beginner crocheter learns.
I think this is the next step in beginners crochet journey as this bandana is worked a little differently. You start at the bottom point of the triangle and work diagonally.
This technique is also referred to as corner to corner technique.
It sounds a little more complicated than it really is! You simply create an extra 1 chain space at each end of the row.
You then use this extra chain space to work a granny stitch into. The granny stitch is a simple cluster of 3 double crochet stitches.
What is even better is that this bandana is so easy to customise to fit a dog of any size.
Because it is worked diagonally, you can easily repeat the last row as many times as you need to make it larger. For smaller breeds you can omit few rows to make it smaller.
