FREE PATTERN: The Perfect Crocheted Fox Ears

When I decided to make Henry a fox hat I looked around and found some free earflap hat patterns, but nothing specifically for a fox. I just worked on the hat part and when I came to the face and ears, I decided to make up a crochet pattern. I'm really happy with how the ears turned out, so I thought I'd share the pattern. I am no crochet expert, so hopefully you can understand it! 
The Perfect Fox Ear Crochet Pattern

G hook, red yarn and white yarn
Make 2 red and 2 white ears

row 1: ch 13, sc in the 2nd chain from the hook and each sc across, chain 1 and turn
row 2: sc in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn
row 3: sc in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn
row 4: sc in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn
row 5: sc in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn
row 6: 2sctog decrease, sc in the next 10 stitches, 2sctog decrease, chain 1 and turn
row 7: sc in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn
row 8: 2sctog decrease, sc in the next 8 stitches, 2sctog decrease, chain 1 and turn
row 9: sc in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn
row 10: 2sctog decrease, sc in the next 6 stitches, 2sctog decrease, chain 1 and turn
row 11: sc in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn
row 12: 2sctog decrease, sc in the next 4 stitches, 2sctog decrease, chain 1 and turn
row 13: sc in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn
row 14: 2sctog decrease, sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sctog decrease, chain 1 and turn
row 15: sc in each stitch across, chain 1 and turn
row 16: 2sctog decrease twice, chain 1 and turn
row 17: 2 sc in each stitch, chain 1 and turn
row 18: 2sctog decrease, pull through, fasten off.

Sc with red around a white and a red ear piece crocheting them together make one ear. Repeat for the other ear. Sew by hand (or crochet) the ears on top of the hat, about 2 inches apart.

  2. It didn't work for me, should it be chain 15 instead of 13?

  3. Initial chain is 13. Row 6 is wrong. 2sctog (4chains) + 10 sc + 2sctog(4 chains) = 18sc + 2 chains were used initially to start the first row. All total you would need to chain 20 which probably would be good to do donkey ears.

  4. Also, to add to my previous comment, the picture only has what looks like 7 rows?

  5. @mary schroeder, there is an error in her pattern... when she says in the decreases to SC in the next 10 or 8 so on or so forth, those numbers she is typing are actually the total amount of stitches you should have in that row... for instance in the first decrease

    you 2scdec the first two stitches and the last two stitches.. and sc between them.. the rows should The first 5 are 12 stitches total after you chain the initial 13 and sc from the second ch across... the 6th row you decrease to 10 st and then 10 sc across again, then you decrease to 8 and 8 sc across and so on and so forth until you get to a point.. hope that helps.
