How’s that for a Japanese post title! I can finally reveal the present I made for Kari (Crafty Ginger). As I know she doesn’t crochet, in honour of her lovely Shiba Inu dog, may I present Ginger (Jr):
I made up the pattern for this amigurumi as I went, although I was influenced by the photos of Soragumi‘s crocheted dogs. The finishing touches to personalise it: a spool-knitted collar in Kari’s favourite colour, with a tiny rubber-stamped shrink plastic dog tag hanging from it.
