I have fallen in love with crochet cat patterns. I do not own a cat, but when i do, that cat is in trouble.
If you are obsessed with crochet cat patterns, then the crochet cat sweater post will be a great place to start, Crochet cat scarf can be a quick make if you are working with minimal yarn, and if you are looking to match with your cat, then a crochet cat beanie for you would be great.
As much as cats are made to survive the cold, a little extra warmth does not hurt.Right?
How to crochet a collar for cats
As much as, this is a very fast and easy crochet project, depending on the pattern you are using, it can get a little complicated. However, the concept is the same, you are crocheting a collar that will just fit around the cats neck.
You want to make a chain that goes around the cats neck, if the stitch you are using works in multiples, then it is best that you follow that stitch count. Following this, you work a few rows to make the collar, any extra rows, you would be making a cat cape!
Tips To Crocheting A Cat Collar
As much as it is a simple crochet project, you want to look out for a few things as the cats are curious animals.
- Do not make the collar too tight for the cat as it sits on their neck. If it is too tight, you might choke them
- As cats move around a lot, you want to use stitches that will not have the cat trapping itself into things, or getting things trapped into its collar
- Do not make the crochet cat collar too long, unless you are trying to make a cape.
- Cats cannot stand seeing things move, if the collar has a lot of things dangling off it, the collar will not last the day
Can I crochet a cat collar as a beginner?
The cat collar might even be a great place to start if you are looking to crochet something wearable. It is mostly a chain, followed by a few rows. If you want it fancy, there might be some decreasing rows and increasing, however, if you are not yet comfortable with decreasing and increasing, then i would suggest you go for simple crochet cat collar patterns.
Materials For A Crochet Cat Collar
Best part of this project is, it will not need much yarn. So it is safe to call it a scrap yarn project. Cat’s necks are small, which means, the collar will be small too. Unless you have several cats, then you might need a bit more yarn.
Red heart super saver yarn can be a great place to start if you are looking for some yarn. If you are looking for a different alternative, then Lion Brand might come to the rescue.
Crochet hooks will be the next requirement to crochet a cat collar, the size will depend o the pattern you chose to follow. Furls Crochet Hooks have always been after my own heart.
