Candy Cane Collar - Free Crochet Pattern # 9

Candy Cane collar -12 collars of Christmas - Free Crochet pattern # 9

This dog collar is intended for decorative purposes only, 
not for attaching your lead or leash to . 
It lays and  fits nicely right over the regular collar.

When I decided to design a Candy cane collar I wanted it to have
 stripes but not exact stripes. Sort of hints of stripes, I guess. 
My creative juices started flowing and I ended up making  
about 20 different designs. I could not decide which one to use.
 So I put each one on Maximo
 to see which one looked best. And this one was the winner.

This is a very simple yet classy looking collar.
It has the red and white elements with out being to strippie (if that is a word??).
