I crocheted two dog bone toys using this free dog bone toy pattern. I tried out the crochet pattern in the multi-colored cotton first. After working the pattern, I thought it would be a great project to work in recycled t-shirt yarn.
I cut my t-shirt yarn using this tarn-making tutorial. My strips were cut thin as this helps make the material easier to crochet. Using t-shirt yarn about 3/8 inches wide and then stretched, it made a dog bone just a bit bigger than the cotton yarn one.
I used an old white sock cut into strips to stuff my dog bone toys. Using the recycled materials in these projects worked well. The dog bones are soft and should bring many hours of fun for my doggie to play with. Finished t-yarn toy size is 7-1/2 inches long by 4-1/2″ wide across the bone end.
