Here it is, as promised, a puppy granny square.

I used the same yarn, Kartopu Bebe  100 % acrylic (50 g / 150 mt), in colors white, red and black, with a hook size 4.5 mm.

Measurements of the square: approx. 15.5 cm X 15.5 cm / 6.1 inch X 6.1 inch.

Round 7: ch 3, dc into the next st, (2 dcs into the next st, dc into the next two sts) repeat 10 more times, 2 dcs into the last st, sl st into the third chain. Total (48 dcs).

Round 9: With the red yarn make a standing double crochet in the last st you made, dc into the next 2 sts, ( hdc into the next 2 sts, sc into the 4 sts, hdc into the next 2 sts, dc into the next 3 sts, 2 tcs, ch 3, 2 tcs in the next st, dc into the next 3 sts) repeat 2 more times, hdc into the next 2 sts, sc into the 4 sts, hdc into the next 2 sts, 2 tcs, ch 3, 2 tcs in the next st, sl st into the first dc.

Round 10, 11 and 12: ch 3, dc into each st, in the ch-3 space corners make ( 2 tcs, ch 3, 2 tcs), sl st into the 3rd chain.

Cut off the yarn and weave in the loose end.

Embroider the nose and eyes with the black yarn.  

The ears: 

Leave a 10 cm / 4 inch length yarn at the beginning.

Row 1: with the black yarn ch 4, in the 4th chain  from the hook make 2 dcs, ch 3, turn. (total 3 dcs)

Row 2: dc into the same st, 2 dc into each st, ch 3, turn. (total 6 dcs)

Sew the ears with the black yarn at the edge of round 8, use the yarn left at the beginning of the ears to anchor the tips of the ears to the square.
