 Start with a MR. Ch 1. SC 8x’s into the ring. Sl st to the first SC, and chain 2.

Round 2: 2 DC into the first st (where the chain 2 is because the Ch 2 doesn’t count), and all the way around. Sl st to join to the first DC, Chain 2. (16) sts.

Into the 6th Stitch in the middle, chain up 30 and HDC into the 2nd chain from your hook and HDC your way back up until you get back to the top, then continue to SC around to the otherside, and into the 2nd ear flap, go into that 6th stitch and chain up 30 once more, HDC into the 2nd chain from the hook and HDC your way back up and continue to SC around. Sl st to the first SC and FINISH OFF.

  1. Thank you Markie for sharing your pattern…
    I plan on making and selling at a craft fair soon. Although I’m not new to crochet; I am new to selling the items I make, especially vending at a craft fair. Proceeds (anywhere between 10%-50%) will go to an animal rescue of my choice. More than like (All Animal Hope and Wellness)

    Once again, thanks!
