Frisbees for Dogs
Paws for thought:
When you’re ticked off and things get ruff,
get a new leash on life and have fun with a dog.
These Frisbees are sturdy and durable: Fun for a dog to catch.
They also have a handle-lip deep enough to play tug.
It is a very easy spiral pattern and can be made in about an hour.
You can personalize the Frisbee with the dog’s name
or add appliques like bones or paw prints.
So go fetch your hook and yarn and ruff one out in no time.

I made one for my daughter’s dog.
He was quite a chewer.
It ended up in shreds.
On the other hand, my dad’s dog loved it and took it to bed at night.
I did make one with a nylon cord #18, which was much stronger and worked better.
Not sure if I added that to the pattern notes.
