Doggie Bookmark

I always use a Steel hook 7, and crochet thread size 10.
but you could use whichever one you like to make bigger or smaller bookmarks.

Chain 6, slip stitch to form ring.

Chain 3, 14 double crochet in ring.

Chain 3, double crochet in same stitch. 2 double crochet in each stitch.

Ear 1

Turn, Chain 3, double crochet in same stitch, 2 double crochet in next 2 stitches.

turn, 3 single crochet decrease in 6 stitches

turn, 2 single crochet decrease in 3 stitches

turn 1 single crochet decrease in 2 stitches,
finish off.

Attach thread 4 stitches away from first ear. Repeat first ear for second ear.

Attach at middle bottom stitch with slip stitch.

Chain 100 3 single crochet in first 12 chains, slip stitch in the rest to beg chain, slip stitch in joining finish off.

With red attach to space in between first and second row, approximately where mouth would be. (I did it one stitch to the right of the tail)

Chain4, slip stitch in 2nd, single crochet in 3rd, slip in 4th, slip stitch in joining. Finish off.

With black, thread a needle and stitch eyes and nose. Eyes are X's under the ears. Nose is a Star stitch over the hole in the beginning.

single crochet decrease= put the needle in one stitch and yarn over and pull through a loop and put the needle in the second stitch and yarn over and pull through a loop and yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on the hook.

Does that make sense?
