Attach yarn to un-worked front loop on Rnd 2; Ch 2, (yo, insert hook in same stitch, bring up a loop) twice, yo, draw through 3 loops on hook, yo, draw through last 2 loops on hook. Instead of securing end as usual by pulling up a loop and drawing the end through the loop and tightening. Pull up the loop until the end comes out. Secure. This will produce a more pointed ear.

Repeat for other ear. Fasten off, secure ends.

Place cover over lollipop. Glue eyes to face. Cut short lengths of Orange embroidery floss for whiskers and glue to face as shown in photo above. Cut a short piece of Orange yarn and weave through Rnd 4, tie in a bow at front, drawing the cover around the stick of the lollipop. Glue a short length of Red embroidery floss to face for a mouth if desired. Enjoy!
