Hugs 'n' Kisses Pet Bandana Pattern

Updated: Mar 14

'Pets' - a commonly used word for our non-human fellow earth dwellers doesn't often encompass the emotions they bring forth in us! They are treasures, and blessings, kids, friends, comrades, partners-in-crime, the couch-buddy, cuddle partners and so much more. So when it comes to dressing them up, we go all fancy, knowing they let us do that, only cause it brings US joy!











Q: Why this Bandana? What's different?

For those of who know me as a designer, I love making non fussy, no-sew/ minimum sew patterns. I just don't like sewing up pieces, unless it's un-avoidable. So This Bandana, is like an attachment, that has a provision to attach it to the collar directly.

Alternately, You can thread a crocheted tie, as shown in the 'Rainbow version' to tie it around.






About the pattern: The pattern is a simple progression with a trellis (lattice) border, enhanced with a play on a puffed, cross dc stitch.


Worked from bottom-up manner in repetitive rows of dc (pattern stitch) and sc rows,

this pattern can be easily adapted to customized sizes.





Q: What are the sizes defined in this Pattern?

The blog defines step by step instructions to make the SMALL size Bandana measuring 8” wide with a height of 6.5” (inclusive of the band to insert the collar).


The additional sizing of LARGE is defined only in the Ad-Free PDF available on my RAVELRY, LOVECRAFTS and WEB STORES. This sizing comes with the extended pattern stitches and measures approximately 10” wide with a height of 9” (inclusive of the band to insert the collar.

Let's get back to the Pattern now!


PART 3 – Making the Collar BAND


Row 1 (RS): ch3 (counts as dc), working in the FRONT LOOPS ONLY, make a dc in each stitch

across. (The unworked back loops will be used to fold and sew the band, to make space for the

collar to slide through.


Row 2 - Row 8: ch3 (counts as dc), make a dc in each stitch across.

Note: For a wider Collar strap to fit through, you can make more repeats of the above rows.


Now, fold the dc rows over to the WS and sew the last row to the unworked loops from

ROW 1 of the BAND.

Alternatively, you can use slip stitch to join to the unworked loops.


Fasten off and weave in the ends.
