Striped Crochet Dog Softie

dogWell I’ve been crocheting every night, working on my striped dog softie to be. I know I need more stuff in my shop cause someday my things will sell, I know they will. Plus, I just can’t stop making stuff, its what I do.

But I do have a decision to make soon, what color(s) for the tail? Should it be striped with black tip or all black like the ears? I can see it either way. Any opinions out there? I’m all ears, so to speak.

    He’s so cute! The colors are great! I think the striped tail w/black on the end would look really fun! BTW, congrats on being posted on the softies page!

    Why thanks, geckogrrl! I’m kind of leaning towards the black-tipped striped tail myself. And I sure was surprised to see my Limey on Softies Central, it made my day!!

    I’m thinking black, like the ears.

    You’re really going to town! Looks great.

    Well I made one and a half legs last night and the tail decision is looming. Black would balance the ears, Peasblossom, you’re right. Maybe I’ll make both and take pics to A / B the choices.
