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:

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

“Crochet is an art and crocheters it’s artists. Each crafted item is unique and own to its crafter”
