  1. Great idea! I have just made a pirate skull and cross bone neckerchief for my Mini Pin. He looks very cute in it and doesnt seem to mind wearing it at all. I love the fact you can slot it over the existing dog collar and im sure i will make more! Thanks for the pattern and easy to follow instructions! Jen

  2. Hi the pattern is great. I have friend who works in the charity shop which supports the South Yorkshire Springer Spaniel Rescue Centre and she mentioned that she had seen these for sale at different places so I thought it might be an idea to make some for them to sell in the shop to help raise funds. I have some oddments of material so thought I could make them reversable. Fingers crossed they will be a success. Thank you for the free pattern.
