I made this for Missy for Christmas pictures. As suspected, she hates it. She completely freaked out when I put it on her.
I used the Holiday Cat Collar Crochet Pattern from Red Heart. I decided not to do the leaves and actual collar and, instead, just crocheted a loop on the backside to slip on to her regular collar. Mostly because I had trouble figuring out the leaf pattern, but I think this worked out just as well.
My typical yarn preference is I Love This Yarn. I used Dark Olive and Cranberry.
I also like to use a hook a size larger than the pattern calls for to get the correct gage because I tend to make my stitches too tight.
