I’m worried that the tie would be to thick. I love it and want to make if for my two labradoodles.
Hi there! I am trying to recall how we styled this on my dog, I believe I tied the ends around a metal loop that was built into her collar. I do remember it being tad thick, but I could at least control the tightness around the collar without it being directly on her neck/bulky on her neck. I hope that makes sense! You could also attach some I-Cord ties to the ends of the bandana, I think that would work well! – Nicola, Editor
Wouldn’t the thicker yarn be hard to tie in the end?
Is there any way a video can be made with the instructions? Or some pictures provided? I’m fairly experienced but I’m having trouble picturing how the rows connect together ????
Hello Alissa! I’ve reached out to the designer for advice and she or I will reply as soon as possible. Thanks! – Nicola, Editor
Very cute. How is the bandanna attached to the dog? Thank you. ????????
Hello! I believe we just tied the ends together like a normal bandana would be tied. Her collar also has a metal loop, and we may have tied it around that for a secure fit. Hope that helps! – Nicola, Editor
I would like a tutorial on this pattern

I’m going to try this pattern out on my 4 huskies..
This is so neat. I would love to see how it is put on, meaning how it is connected or tied. What a great idea this is!!!
