What You Will Need:
-Yarn (not alot, a decent sized leftovers from other projects will do nicely)
-A doll (for sizing)
-The pet the leash is for (again this is for sizing. This leash was for a friend so I just randomly chose Sugar)
Less then a half hour. I didn't time it but seriously it took no time at all. I started watching Sweeney Todd while I was making this and even taking pictures I had this done LONG before Sweeney killed his first victim.
1) Begin finger knitting. Leave yourself a decent sized tail when you start.
2) work until it fits around the pet's neck. Make sure you leave enough room so that it easily slips on and off.
3) Now this is were the tail you left at the begining comes into play. Tuck it into the loop you've been working with. and continue to finger knit as normal.
it should look like this
4) Keep finger knitting for another inch or two. Until the tail is nice and secure.
5) Tie off the tail. I would recommend double-knotting it to keep it secure when you slip it on and off.
6) and cut off the remainder ends. Congrats! You've just completed the hardest part. You may now resume your regularly scheduled finger-knitting.
7) Keep finger knitted until you have about a foot after the end loop (or longer if you desire. The great thing about this craft is that it's fairly customizable)
8) fit the loop around your doll's wrist. Much like the loop that goes around the pet's neck, make sure it can slip easily on and off.
9) For this next part you will need to cut the project away from the yarn ball. make sure you leave yourself a decent length though.
10) Tie the loop off. Again, I would recommend double knotting to keep it secure during play.
11) Cut the ends off and you have completed your leash!
Enjoy and feel free to make as many leashes as you need for all your dolls pets. Like I said earlier the great thing about this craft is that you can make leashes in any color and size you want or need.
I hope you enjoyed this craft. PLEASE leave me comments and possibly photos if you try it. Since this is the first doll craft I've written I'm very eager to hear how it works for others. Also feel free to comment with any questions or problems you may have.
