Notes:
Tension/Gauge is not necessary for this project to be perfect

I use US Crochet stitch terminology

Abbreviations:
CH – chain
SC – single crochet
HDC – hald double crochet
DC – double crochet
SC2tog – single crochet 2 stitches together
SL ST – slip stitch

INSTRUCTIONS:

Animal Field:
With double knitting / light worsted (No 3) yarn and 3, 50 mm hook

Cow Bush:
With green yarn, make a magic circle

ROW 1; CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 7 DC into ring (8 DC), TURN
ROW 2: For this row work only in front-loops – CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 1 DC into same ST. Work 2 DC into each ST until end (16 DC), TURN
ROW 3: For this row work only in back-loops – CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 1 DC into same ST, work 1 DC into next ST.
*Work 2 DC into next ST, work 1 DC into next ST. Repeat until end of row (24 DC), TURN
ROW 4: For this row work only in front-loops – CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 1 DC into same ST, work 1 DC into next 2 STS.
*Work 2 DC into next ST, work 1 DC into next 2 STS. Repeat until end of row (32 DC), TURN
ROW 5: For this row work only in front-loops – CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 1 DC into same ST, work 1 DC into next 3 STS.
*Work 2 DC into next ST, work 1 DC into next 3 STS. Repeat until end of row (40 DC), TURN

NOTE: for option one I used two yarns – dark green and light green.

OPTION ONE: Rejoin yarn on the 2nd row and work a LOOP STITCH into each exposed loop, then ‘continue in the round’ and work loops into row 1;
‘continue in the round’ and work loops into row 3;
‘continue in the round’ and work loops into row 4.
Fasten off, leave a tail for sewing, weave in ends.

OPTION TWO: Working randomly  into each loop as follows; –for exp [1 SC, 1 HDC, 1 SC], next loop [1 DC, 1 SC, 1 HDC], next loop [1 HDC, 1 DC, 1 HDC] – continue in the round working into the exposed loops.

There are lots of tutorials on the web on how to crochet the loop stitch:
