D is for Dog Toy

This pattern is a cheap and quick alternative to buying your dog store bought toys.

Yarn for Small Dogs
Old T-shirt Strips for Large Dogs
I used yarn to make this dog toy, as my toy is for a smaller dog. If you have a medium to large sized dog replace yarn with old t-shirt strips so that the end result will be more durable.
Step 1: Cut (18) 40" strands of yarn.
Step 2: Bunch the strands into 2 groups, 9 strands in each group.
Step 2: Form an X by crisscrossing the 2 groups of yarn. (I grouped mine by the colors red, white, & blue)
Step 3: Tie knot into the center of X.
Step 4: Braid each section, 4 sections total. Trim ends to even length.
You may add more strands of yarn to increase the overall thickness of the toy.
